You need:


1. A prepatched OSX 10.4.x install image.

2. An empty dvd recordable (+R or –R, NO Rewritable!).

3. An IDE Disc.


The guide:


1. Get an prepatched OSX 10.4.x install image.

2. Burn the image to an empty dvd recordable (+R or –R,NO Rewritable!)

Use your favourite burn program for this (Recommented Nero Burning Rom or Alcohol 120% or MagicISO or PowerISO e.t.c.)

Make sure that S.M.A.R.T. is disabled from Bios configuration.

Use IDE Disc and IDE Drive,Jumpers seted like master and slave on the same primary chanel.

Use PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse.

3. Insert the OSX install disk and reboot your computer, follow the installation steps on your screen.

Chose Language and after that chose Tools>DiscUtility and Delete and give a name to your Disc, close DiscUtility after that.

Chose Customize on the Instalation menu and be careful what you chose (you dont need all the languages support, X11 tools, all Printers Drivers).

Chose all Intel related updates and kexts.


This way works most of the times.
