I am having some issues getting OS X Leopard 10.5.8 running on my laptop. I have it installed and am able to boot into the loader. There is a pic attached where it hangs. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I've gotten iAtkos S 10.6.3 installed. I can not boot into OSX and use my Atheros AR9285 wifi. Still working on proper video for my Nvidia GeForce 210M 256Mb and Realtek HD Audio.

It's been a while since I've been on here. Yes, I am running Windows 7 off the same HDD. It turns out that Sony uses some sort of weird voodoo when they setup graphics on their laptops. I've had trouble installing Linux also (tried Ubuntu and Mint). It seems that full graphics might be a possibility if I can figure out how to get the OS to recognize the internal display. I will keep playing at it, as this is a hobby that jumps at me every once and a while. Progress, if any, will be posted.
