  1. That was TOO EASY Bought a Gigabyte board that i read about from the Tonymac86 forums and couldn't get it to work well because I wanted to dual boot & use the onboard SSD, with Intel RAID. Tried your unlock files on VMW8 With my Retail SL DVD, and that was too easy. Donk - My thanks to you & your crew for your efforts. Really, that was painless./\
  2. Folks - I could use the advice of anyone familiar with Kalyway 10.5.2 I'd like to run it on either http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...p;Sku=A455-3017 or http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...ku=I69-2148%20D I also want to thank Kaly for a fine distribution, its the only one I'm having any luck with. Thanks Kaly
  3. All - I'm MacosX nOOb. I do know BSD, *nix and Windoze of course. I have a retail DVD, I have a virgin HD on a box dedicated to become my hackintosh. I am having trouble getting Leopard to install after using a boot132 boot disk and swapping over to my retail DVD So I started looking for other ideas since a lot of threads discuss having my partitions pre built by the Leo Disk Utility prior to starting install. I dont have access to a working Leo install. (If I did could I stick my IDE disk in a USB case and plug it into a friends LEO Mac, and format? If so, what part/fs scheme is recommended to use half of a 350 gig IDE?) Could I use Ubuntu, BSD, or some other *nix to create my OSX File System and then use a *nix Live CD to copy EFI 8 onto the disk? If I did that, wouldnt my Retail DVD just boot ??? If this is correct, I would format my 350 gb IDE drive as follows 150 gig = OSX (Active) 100 gig FAT 32 100 gig Ubuntu ext3 The 100 gig in FAT32 is a shared file system for MP3s, MPGs, etc that both OS's can see. I thought I could use *nix or something to install boot132 and EFI to the HD, and after reading this forum, I felt that I should before my install attempts get better. BTW - I'm also trying to dl the torrents but it looks like it will be Christmas or New Years before I have the whole thing. I bought a 10.5.4 retail DVD Any help is welcome and deeply appreciated. firemann816 at hotmail dot com
