I keep getting the STOP error :-( I See the first boot screen splash and then BANG! A message pops up saying restart etc etc... :rolleyes: can anyone help me out of this?I got here through the following


Here's how to install osx 10.5 leopard 9a581 in your intel/amd sse3 machine without the use of a single DVD!


You need at least 20 GB free space on a ntfs partition and an entire disk to spare. it's all patched with the BrazilMAC patch.


1. grab the torrent.

2. extract leopard-x86.rar to the folder

3. open compmgmt.msc and select Disk Management

4. remember what disk (Disk 0, Disk 1 etc) you want to install to

5. remove any existing partitions on that disk by right clicking and selecting 'Delete Volume' and 'Delete Partition'

6. copy the .bat file for the selected disk to the folder


WARNING!! selecting the wrong file may result in a wiped disk!!


7. execute the .bat file and wait..

8. reboot into the created disk [by pressing Esc, F12 or whatever your mainbord wants] and boot into a fresh osX 10.5 install, you can now

select your login info, location and so on.

9. if you wanna dualboot from vista, download EasyBCD...

10. if you're having trouble to boot into os x ,press F8 when booting and type -v at the boot screen to see whats wrong and then consult some osx86 forum.


this install disk was bade by the help of the tutorial at


it's reported to work great on Asus P5W DH Deluxe, Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 and works ok on my Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4




Still can't get through ;) -v shows till label of my disk1 ntfs partition and halts!

Mine was doing this... after pressing f8 on startup and then loading with -x it let me in, then i formatted the drive i wanted osx to be on using fat32 replacing with 0's then reformatted again with the regular settings, restarted and booted normally... message to restart went away.
