Freezes when erasing and formatting the partition

I'm using the AMD version of the Mac OS X Leopard install (Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.1 for AMD SSE2/SSE3 (32bits))


I first boot with "-x"

Then after all those messages load up, I open up Terminal and type in "ps auxww | grep fsck"

I then go to Disk Utility and choose the recognized NTFS partition I made for the OS X Installation.

I click the "Erase" tab and I format it as a Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)

It says Unmounting drive and it freezes 1 minute later.

So whats the problem?


And I made a NTFS because it would recognize my FAT32 partitions. I use a SATA HD.

The installer is made by zephyroth



Below are some screenshots of the freezing part.
