I obtained Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.1 for AMD SSE2/SSE3 (32bits)

burned, Booted, and everything works fine in the installation apart from petition

I booted back into windows and installed MacDrive 7 to format my drives for mac since i was unable to in the setup input/output error occured,

i installed BCE, to setup a Boot Select Menu,

Vista option points to the corrosponding drive it is installed on

Leopard option Points to the drive it WILL be installed on


now i basically get up to the point where the isntallation is , CALCULATING THE TIME REMAINING

about 1/10th of the progress bar and sits there for up to an hour, i dont know if it would sit there longer becusae i gave up at this point

should i not give up it should install fast right seeing as my comp specs are pretty good?


i need some help

do i need to open up terminal, just prior to isntall and type in settings, and commands

im new to this, but im not a noob,

if you tell me how to do it, it will be done,


cheers fraser
