Leopard on ASUS Laptop

Recommended Posts

Hi all,




I just download the Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2




I burned the iso into a DVD, however when i boot from the DVD and begin the installation process, at the very beginning right after it says Mac OS version not set, and talks about Darwin version something by someone whose name starts with T, (Sorry for sounding so noob) it freezes, and goes nowhere , I tried typing different kernel names in the hope of getting it to work.




I tried the following commands in the section right after pressing F8 ,



















so I tried all that and there was no use, i tried -v and -s , that didn work also.




and i have been reading a lot online about the Bios settings stuff, but when i go to my Bios Setup , i don't see none of those options.




Now my laptop has two partitions , one is windows on it , and the other one i am hopping Mac OS X , is my windows installation going to be intact ?




I am just going to try Mac OSX for now my primary OS will be Vista (I have already backed up everything), so i am hoping i don't mess up my computer real bad.
