Downloaded 10.5.2 Zephyroth

Burned ISO to DVD at 4x


I booted off the CD. Pressed F8.

- i see that hd(31,0) Leopard-10.5.2-AMD-EFI is highlighted

Typed -v

Loads Darwin/x86...

i see that it fails a ton of stuff...

-AppleNForceATA: scanfForDrives found 0 units

-AppleNForceATA: phy connection failed. status=0x00000000

-AppleNForceATA:NVIDIA nForce MCP55 Serial ATA by MeDevil (CMD 0x97, IRQ 23, BM 0xe008)

- waiting for boot volume with UUID: 89B78657-814A-3F0C-A28D-1A14358A8B98

- ERROR: FireWire unable to determine security-mode; defaulting to full secure.


then loads Installation GUI

"Select a Destination" is all blank and not showing my partitions that I made.

I click on "Utilities" at the top

clicked on "Disk Utility"

I can see the two HD's and their partitions there.

I can select the partition and erase it.. if i do that, what volume format should i use?

- mac OS Extended (Journaled)

- Mac OS Extended

- Max OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Hournaled)

- Max OS Extended (Case-sensitive)


I tried to mount any of the partitions and it failed.




any help?

Is there another ISO i should try?

What commands can i run so the OSX installation will see my partitions?
