Stumped During MAC OS X Retail Install

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

ok so I have been trying to install retail leopard os x 10.5.6 to my PC running Vista Home Premium. I have partitioned my HDD successfully with GParted and have it formatted with NTFS. I have a store bought os x DVD and a BOOT 132 loader (the generic one). every time I attempt installation I get to the grey screen with the apple logo and a continuously spinning wheel just below it. when i boot using the F8 and -v command I can see that it gets stuck with the error SAM Multimedia Read_Write Failed Sense_Key or something similar to that.


My Specs:

HP dv6700 Notebook PC

Intel Core 2 Duo T5600

Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 OS


Mobile Intel GMA 965 Express Family Chipset

Intel 82801HBM (ICH8-ME) Southbridge

ATA and SATA Device Drivers

ACPI x86 based PC


please keep in mind that i'm not completely sure what some of that means. i am adequate with computers but don't consider myself IT technician worthy so please be patient if you think i am a noob. PLEASE HELP ME!!!
