Alright, so after a lot of times trying to install 10.5.6 (the iPC version); I got it to run. The problem appears to be that my computer doesn't want to boot with an AGP card, only the on the onboard video. Unfortunately, the onboard video is stuck at 1024X768 instead of 1680 x 1050. How can I get around this problem? Also, if I install the wrong drivers, how can I uninstall them? Thanks!

 

Here are my specs

HP 724c

with a 2.54 P4

MSI 6577 board

Intel ICH 4

RTL8139 Ethernet

AC'97 audio

Geforce 2 Mx

Damn it. Bricked it again with the nVidia legacy drivers. Keeps reading display: family specific matching fails.

I hate this resolution, but having tried installing this thing 11 times in a P4 really blows.

 

Btw I got it to boot with an old ATi Rage card, then an TNT2 card. I install the generic drivers, didn't do {censored}, so I went with the legacy drivers and bam. Bloody shame too considering I had it all personalized =( Man I need so sleep, but this {censored} ain't gonna fix itself.

 

I hope 13th the charm.

If you have windows installed on another partition you'll need software like MacDrive to access the mac disk and remove the drivers from /System/Library/Extensions. If you don't have windows or MacDrive then look into downloading something like a Fedora LiveCD that you can boot off of and take the kexts out with.
