okay so i get my kalyway 10.5.2 iso and im going to burn it to a disc...... im using imgburn with default settings even though it shouldn't matter cause the iso should have all the right settings... right?

 

if not can you guys tell me what to set it as?

 

well anyway i burn this disc thinking awesome i can run mac again (have used this previously with absolutely no problem even same iso) but when i stick it in my computer it starts like its about to start going(you know the !000000 thing) but then it says "System config file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration(com.apple.Boot.plist not found." and stays in that loop forever. and im like... hey this is pooie cause an older disc that is really scratched boots just fine, i've burnt both discs from the same computer and even burnt a second copy of the new disc thinking oh hey.. i got a coaster big deal. but the disc is the same way... i had a copy of leopard 10.5.2 on the thing already and i thought maybe thats goofing it up so i removed its stuff and reput a partition on it. and still same thing..

 

if any person out there can help me with this... i will give you a air 5 and a e-hug. haha I've been working on this thing for about 2 days now and im getting super frustrated with it and could use an answer

 

btw my acer extensa 4220 laptop ran this PERFECT last time i installed literally everything worked on the first boot i didn't need to set up anything.

 

 

i guess your luck has to run out something though eh?

 

 

well anyway i hope you guys can help me out =]

I vaguely recall having a problem with similar symptoms once, with an iPC beta. The problem in my case was that I'd incorrectly applied PPF files, which created a corrupt image file. Therefore, I suggest that it's conceivable you've got a corrupted image file, too. Do you have an MD5 sum for the disc, published by its source? If so, check your original download file to see that it's intact. If it is, then review the steps you used to burn your boot disc to ensure you did everything correctly. I'm not familiar with ImgBurn, so I can't help you with its settings. Perhaps you could try some other software to burn another disc...?
