  2. OSX86 10.5 Leo [ToH]-RC2 SSE3/SSE2 Intel Only

    Hello, I'm here to report a success installation. Was not exactly out of box so bellow the steps that took me to a Leopard fully functional. The details of each step you can find easily at previos posts on this or other topics related, so don't excited to use the search box Ok, first my system: P4 HT 3.0Ghz Chipset VIA P4M800 Northbridge and VT8237 Southbridge 1Gb RAM 80Gb IDE HD Audio AC97 Wired network VIARhine NVidia FX 5200 128Mb - First I tried Brazil's method, without success. The thing just don't boot here. So I decided to try ToH x86 rc2 image. I did as described at the first post of this topic. - After the installation the thing still did not boot, with some kernel panics (something with ACPI). So I put the following at a USB pendrive, and using the install DVD as a Livecd I replace the kernel and some extensions and I got my Leopard working: - From #leopard (irc) I got the last Leopard Kernel. I'm booting with cpus=1 kernel parameter (com.apple.Boot.plist edited) - Audio and network ok with AppleAC97Audio.kext and ViaRhine.kext. Both from my old Tiger (10.4.9) system. - If you look inside Brazil's zip file you'll find some kexts. From there I added/replaced the following to my system: dsmos.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext AppleSMBIOS.kext - Ok, after reboot I got my self inside my new Leopard. - After the basic steps I did some tuning - Video ok with Natit_1.0.pkg installer. - I noticed that my HD access was terrible slow. After a lot of Googling I got this solution that work like a charm to my IDE system: Get AppleVIAATA.kext and change the follow Info.plist's keys <key>VIA PATA Controller</key> <key>Serial ATA</key> <true/> <key>VIA SATA Controller</key> <key>Serial ATA</key> <false/> Put at the right place, reboot and it is. A sensible faster HD. Was It. Hope this steps be useful to someone Best wishes, aethiopicus
