  1. Hi MACinized, I followed your other documents and was able to install Leopard. I am very new to these procedures. Would you mind detailing the restore part of Snow Leopard for me. I have a Retail DVD that I got as an upgrade from Apple but looks like a full DVD. I don't know how to do restore. Could you help? Thanks

    Hi Doomi, I have a question. Were you able to get the trackpad working properly. I installed via Retail DVD, and then RC2, I even go t the 10.5.8 update working for me and waiting for my snow Leopard update CD. I have 2 problems, Trackpad works erraticaly jumps all over the place, and I never got my display working. I have Intel Express 4 Chipset for the display. Let me know if you have any pointers for me? Thanks

    Network still not working. I followed the advice from TofuTodd used iAtkos and applied the patches. Everything is working, touch pad is still jumpy but that's OK. I cannot get the ethernet working. I used the package and change the version information in the package as it was described. ( I assume it is the place). Then installed the package. repaired the permissions. Rebooted and ethernet is still not working. Could you guys advice? Thanks Jack
  4. Thanks for your quick reply. I'll try the way you describe it. One comment I have that I did not see any KEXTs in the boot.132 cd. Do I need to make the CD with the KEXTs. Is your boot image maker for that purpose? Could you let me know if that is the case how I can do it? Thank you again for your help.

    Thanks for your reply, I am sorry to sound so stupid but Where I can find the iAtkos V7 installation and guide? Can I install it since I installed MacLoader? Do I need to remove everything from that Partition ? then install iAtkos? Other question, again forgive my ignorance, how do I install ApplePS2.kext. If I figure that out I guess I can apply the other *.kext file I found in this topic. Would you mind outlining it as if you are talking to 5 year old

    Quick Update of my problem, I reinstalled the Retail 10.5.6 and I was able to boot into Leopard by following these steps. I still have a problem since I still have to use USB keyboard and mouse since nothing on the laptop works, keyboard, mouse track, tracking stick, wireless etc etc. I am guessing it has something to do where I place these KEXTs. So here is what I did : 1 - I created 2 partitions MacLoader and Leopard and installed the Retail OS on Leopard partition. 2 - I downloaded MacLoader5.2.1.zip and unzipped on my PC, it produced 2 folders _MACOSX and MacLoader5.2.1. I copied them into MacLoader partition. 3 - I downloaded all the KEXT zip files, uzipped them, and put them into MacLoader5.2.1/KEXTs folder in MacLoader partition. 4 - I ran the macloader.command from same location. 5 - I rebooted and it loaded into Leopard but with nothing working, I still have to use the USB Keyboard and Mouse. Is this the right procedure? Did I miss anything (Perhaps trivial step, but to me it is major I guess)? How do I use the KEXTs? Did I do the right thing? Do I need to copy them into different place? Do I copy them as folders (When I unzipped them it unzips them as folders) or whats underneath them? I also see the updater.command in MacLoader5.2.1 directory in MacLoader partition. When and for what I need to use this command. Could somebody please guide me into right direction? Thank you so much in advance. Jack
  7. Hi Macinized, I first want to thank you for your guide. I tried and with somewhat success installed the Retail 10.5.6 Leopard on Dell e 6400 with Intell graphics. But when I came to Step 9 with the MacLoader I started to get confused since I am very new to Mac as well as this procedures. Here are the steps I took and my questions as follows; 1 - I created 2 partitions MacLoader and Leopard and installed the Retail OS on Leopard partition. 2 - I downloaded MacLoader5.2.1.zip and unzipped on my PC, it produced 2 folders _MACOSX and MacLoader5.2.1. I copied them into MacLoader partition. 3 - I downloaded all the KEXT zip files, uzipped them, and put them into MacLoader5.2.1/KEXTs folder in MacLoader partition. 4 - I ran the macloader.command from same location. 5 - I rebooted and it loaded into Leopard but with nothing working, I still have to use the USB Keyboard and Mouse. Is this the right procedure? Did I miss anything (Perhaps trivial step, but to me it is major I guess)? How do I use the KEXTs? Did I do the right thing? Do I need to copy them into different place? Do I copy them as folders (When I unzipped them it unzips them as folders) or whats underneath them? I would highly appreciate your response or anyone's response on this matter. Thank you so much.

    Hi Everyone, first of thank you all for your contributions. I'm pretty new to the MAC world and tried to install on Dell e6400 with Intell graphics, I have been able to install the Leopard 10.5.6 but I can only boot into it with orig_boot132 cd that I created and with USB keyboard and Mouse. I am going to summarize the steps I took in hopes of you guide me into right direction. Perhaps it will provide a somewhat checklist for the newbies like myself 1 - According to the Macinized thred. I downloaded orig_boot131.iso.zip into my PC unzipped it and found _MACOSX and orig_boot-132.iso in the root folder. I burnt the image to a CD and was able to boot from it. Q: I never used the _MACOSX directory and files underneath. Do I need to do anything with it? 2 - When I was able to boot into the retail 10.5.6 CD, I opened the Disk Utility and created two partitions. Loader( 1G) and Leopard ( Rest of the Disk). Q: Do I need to to select any options, do I need to choose Erase option, boot option etc? 3 - I was able to install the Retail 10.5.6 and booted into it by using USB keyboard and mouse and orig_boot132 CD. Q: Before I use the MacLoader do I need to do any disk prep, changing permissions etc on the Loader partition? My Leopard installation sees the Loader partition with a (!) next to it. Do I need to erase, unmout etc to it? 4 - I also downloaded MacLoader5.2.1.zip and all the KEXTs. Although when I tried to view the zipped KEXTs some of them said corrupted in my PC but I was able to unzip them. MacLoader.5.2.1 produced 2 folders _MACOSX and MacLoader5.2.1. In MacLoader5.2.1 folder, I copied all the KEXT files (they are file folders) into KEXTs directory. I issued the macloader.command and it changed the partition name to MacLoader but produced some errors similar to some question about UUID in this thread. Mine produced the similar errors but did not produce a Volume name and UUID at the end of it. I tried to do the MacLoader again this time it complained about not finding the Extras folder, or operation not permitted error. After I tried to install one more time I'll post the errors. One other question, how do I add KEXTs after the installation. Is it late to do it after the installation? 5 - I tried booting the system, Chameleon showed me 2 disks, MacLoader and Leopard. When I choose MacLoader it says cannot find the kernel, when I choose Leopard where my installation is, it says: " You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the Restart button. I would highly appreciate you guys' input. I am sure I am missing some simple but crucial steps. It could be some trivial step ( to an avid Mac User) but I cannot solve this. Thank you, Jack
