hi guys. I have a problem with booting kalyway Leopard 10.5.2 . The same problem is with iATKOS 5i. I've succesfully installed both, but when it boots it only views grey apple screen and the spinning circle. Here's my screen after F8-> -v:

This is my PC:

CPU - Intel® Core2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.00GHz, 3005 MHz SSE2 SSE3

Mainboard - Foxconn P35A-S

RAM - 2046 MB

BIOS - AMI 080014

HDD - Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus 120026 ATA-100 120 GB HFS+

Graphic - ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

Sound - Realtek Digital Output

Network - Realtek RTL8168/8111 Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)

OS - Windows Vista Business

 

Please help.

I've tried with -v, -x, -f, cpus=1.

And also tried this method posted on forum:

 

"Enable ACPI 2.0 and set Suspend Mode to S3.

 

SATA must be set to AHCI. (right screenshot, configure SATA as)

 

Under APM configuration, turn off everything."

 

Didn't work out for me...

 

I've heard that modded bios can help, but I don't know how to do this. I'll appreciate any help.

I don't really care about sound and the ethernet at this time. For now I just want to get this OS working.

Did you try booting in single user mode? Boot flag -s

 

When the system has completed it's inital sequence, type exit to boot system.

 

Might not work but worth a try?

 

Exactly the same screen. Can't even get to this sequence - either from HDD or DVD [i mean I can't run prompt].

I've heard that modded bios can help, but I don't know how to do this.

Have you tried an alternative to iatkos? I know some users have reported different results depending on installer disk / kexts used.

 

This thread shows instuctions for a similar chipset but using Leo4all

I've tried JaS, Kalyway and iATKOS. I'll try Leo4all and post you back. Thx.
