hi all i've been tryin to get osx 10.5.2 running on my dell inspiron 640m. I used the Kalyway 10.5.2 install DVD and Gparted Live CD. Everything wen ok, install etc, after install and reboot I get to the grey screen with apple logo and loading thingy and than a blue screen pops up for 1 second and than a black screen, just like in the Getting Leopard Working on Inspiron 1525 topic.


I tried the waiting 11:20min thing but that didnt work for me, so I hooked up an external monitor and hit Fn+F8 to switch to it, the screen appeared but it was all stretched out, so I cant get past the "Create an apple account" part! I only see the upper part of the screen, its stretched out with white lines across it, when I pull the monitor plug out of my laptop, the same stretched out screen appears on my laptop screen for 2 seconds and than it turns black again. The Apple loading screen appears fine though.


Does anyone have an idea what i could try or point me to a usefull thread?
