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...

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

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?

- Max OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Hournaled)

- Max OS Extended (Case-sensitive)


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