  1. Modified boot-132 Bootloader

    I have not seen anywhere in my searches about anyone sucessfully installing Leopard on an ABIT board, but I would like to change that. After I partitioned (FAT32) my (new) drive I rebooted to the (Kalyway 10.5.1 ) DVD and it loaded about 5 minutes , then flashed the white screen with a big grey apple for about a half second at most, then machine reboots. I have tried this more than once with the same result. (Seriously, I have tried this atleast 15-20 times) Do you have any suggestions? Any help you could offer me would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou!

  2. Darwin Bootloader FAQ

    I hope I am in the right place with my question. I have been reading throughout this forum but havent seen my same problem yet. After I partitioned (FAT32) my (new) drive I rebooted to the (Kalyway 10.5.1 ) DVD and it loaded about 5 minutes , then flashed the white screen with a big grey apple for about a half second at most, then machine reboots. I have tried this more than once with the same result. I have tried it with -v although I don't get much chance to look at what the last thing loaded is due to the machine restarting .Do you have any suggestions? Any help you could offer me would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou for your time.
