Booting 10.5.1 Kalyway re-boots machine

I'm on an MSI P4 MB


Sadly, booting this machine, using the recent Kalyway 10.5.1 Installer Disk, "Loading Darwin" spins around on the black command prompt screen for about 3 minutes, then restarts the computer. This is a cycle.


I've burned a new DVD of the KALYWAY_LEO_10.5.1intel ISO on a different burner, I've "Dumbed down" the Bios on the machine, killing all i/o except IDE, disabling hyper threading, and I still can't boot this machine off the Kalyway DVD.


Loading in -v mode, I can watch all of the drivers / system files load, then - about 2 minutes in, the computer restarts.


The JaS 10.4.7 DVD will boot, Disk Utility works, And it'll install, but loading the OS 1st time boot attempt after succesfull instal, gives a red circle with a line through it, under the grey apple.


Any thoughts ? This MB just not compat ?
