  1. Yes, I will try and give all the details within the next few days i.e. PC Hardware, how I installed and what kexts I used. I did download and use the iDenub 10.5.5 install DVD if found on a Mac Warez site - let me know if you need link. I have tried for a month to get Leopard to work but it wouldnt install, started a week ago with the iDenub disk and could get it to install but it wouldnt run Leopard, boot error with grey boot screen with waiting icon then traffic stop symbol (others have has similar issues with newer hardware). Then on Saturday due to heat wave we are having here in Australia and the bush fires (same day - we survived of course but alot dead, currently 129 still counting and 800 homes gone) I thought I would try once more and use the default settings except for picking the 9.2.2 sleep kernel I think (all selectable in the DVD installer - easy to do), I installed to my formatted partition. I then used easyBCD to check via Vista the boot config, all looked OK (I am no expert), re-booted, selected OS X, then darwin kernel gave me option to select Tiger or Leopard, selected Leopard and it worked perfectly. Went through the normal config as per new install and all including sound, wireless, video works. I did select the Nvidia 256 Meg in the installer at the beginning though. I will re-install and note my settings exactly and re-post here. Just google my Mother Board type to see what my chip sets are, the wireless I am using is the Belkin USB type, I used a Tiger 10.4 installer package to get this to work, easy to do, can post the installer for that here if required. My CPU is an SSE2 type as well, not SSE3. Hope this gives you some inspiration as I was told it will never work with my setup, how wrong they were, cheers Jeff Hi Nila, First you need to find ou if you do have an SSE2 capable CPU. Donload a program called CPU-Z (google it), it will tell you what you CPU specs are, if it is SSE1, then no, you will not be able to run Leopard. If it is SSE2, then there is a chance. I thought about upgrading just to run Leopard but glad I didnt as my board is fully over clockable and now running a 2.4G CPU at 3.6G. Core 2 cpu would be better but have saved some money anyway. Also, google your chipset or use this forum and see if anyone else has used it to get Leo working. If you have windows, get all your hardware specs from the Device manager - helps later when you intall from the DVD. I used iDenub 10.5.5 which I download from the Web. I will get to posting my selections in the installer soon. I did however use EasyBCD 2.0 (link on this forum) to check the boot loader, unsure if this helped me at all, anyway will post soon, cheers Jeff Maybe double posting this, sorry in advance. New to forum posting and just coming to terms with how it all works. Anyway below is in response to 2 posts about how I got it to work, more to come.

Intel 845 GV Chipset with P4 1.6 GHz (Probably SSE2), IDE DVD and HDD. Tried with Kalyway Leopard DVD on it but it reboots at startup. Is there any hope of success if I try with Leo4all dvd? Please help. Hi Nila, First you need to find ou if you do have an SSE2 capable CPU.

  2. First, I would like to thank all who have posted on the forum, all the help has been great. I will post how I did the following when I work out exactly what I did, should have written all of it down. Any way, most will think this is not a big deal but I have got Leopard 10.5.5 to work on my old Epox 4PDA2+ MOBO with intel 865 chipset, GeForce FX5500 graphics. Basically have struggled to get it to work but once it did, Leo flys. Quad booting: XP Pro Vista Ultra Tiger 10.4.11 Leopard 10.5.5 Everything works - audio, wireless, Video, USB etc. All good
