Ive bin trying to install leopord on my laptop for 3 days now and got closer every time, every time i insert the leopord dvd i have to press f12 and select boot from cd/dvd, then press f8 when iATKOS starts up, then i type -v on the installation and loads of writing comes up and then a blue screen comes up then it blacks out, i remove the power cord wait 20 seconds then set a timer for 5 mins then close the lid of my laptop, when the time is up i lift up the lid press a button and the installion screen comes up, i go through the utility disk erase to jounled e.tc e.tc and try to load the darwin then i go to the set up and install, if i customize with all of the options ticked, then i try to boot after it installs i get a black screen then the computer restarts, if i choose the three drivers options the computer starts then says the computer needs to be shut down/restarted i do this again no luck, i got to the setup of the leopord once and it wouldnt let me type in the feilds but would let me click with the mouse/touch pad, another time i got into the leopord setup i couldnt get past the connection screen and the welcome message of MAC OSX 10.5 would come up and start me back at the beggining, When i got into the setup screen i hat to take the wire out and wait for 11 mins then plug it back in like i had to on installtion i think a person called (MAC GIRL ) came up with this


I used these guides to help me get this far...
