i don't see anything wrong, let it go, it will eventually boot into the installer

 

 

It boots the installer, but I cant select the destination, The disk utility shows my hard drive with unmounted volumes[meaning there light gray] so I cant reformat them, even when I use diskpart with id=af still wont mount the volume.

 

The very first time I installed leo4all with no problem, But I wanted to restore vista, so i did, then made another FAT32 volume, Then the cd give me then "appleRAIDServer not responding" along with "unable to mount /dev/disk5s1"

 

The installer boots and all, Its just that I cant select my destination to install it on. Its pretty fusturastiong when you do it once and cant to it agian:(

 

help anybody?

did you go into disk management, select the fat32 partition and format it hfs+ journaled? you can't install leopard onto a fat32 partition, the fat32 format is only there so the installer can recognize your hd. even though most seem to see the ntfs partitions now anyway

Yes I know, I formated it to FAT32 many times using all different tools;MS Disk mangement,Arcois disk suite,partition magic, and gParted. But nothing works. What exaculy did you do when you formated you partition? Is there something Im doing wrong?

Maybe if you try to name the partiton "Mac1" and after you formate it, make it active too.

 

This worked for me.

Then I had to erase the partition in Disk Utility before installing MAC OSX on, because it didn't recognize it. I erased it like Mac Extended drive. Now it works....

 

 

Sorry for my bad english.

I hope I helped you somehow.

Good Luck

Teddy
