I have seen a few others post the same issue I am having, but am not yet able to find a resolution anywhere.
I have done the following;
1. Download all files, burn PK5Family.iso (tried a few others as well..)
2. Burn retail 10.5.6 leopard disk
3. Following instructions for booting with Boot 123 disk, then putting in retail disk.
At this point, it shows the grey background with the apple logo and stays there forever. No spinning icon, not error, just sits there. If I boot verbosely, it clears the text off and displays a blank screen at this point.
Just before switching to this screen, it displays the following text.
I have tried tinkering with my BIOS settings, as well as updating the BIOS to the latest revision and resetting to defaults. Not sure where to go at this point...
I am curious if perhaps the retail installation does not work with a pentium 4 CPU, and requires a dual/quad core. I have installed patched copies in the past (kalyway, 10.5.1 and a few 10.4.x) with no issue, but they may be modified to support pentium 4.
Asus P5K-E Wifi-AP
Pentium 4 3.2Ghz
2GB DDR3 Crucial RAM
Way too many hard drives, but have tried with both IDE and SATA
Pioneer SATA DVD drive
Would prefer getting a retail install working than going back to a modified install, so any help is appreciated.
