Hello I'm new here and i am trying to install leopard on my new machine. My curent configuration is: Asus P5K -VM , 1 GB of ram, a 300 GB sata Western digital Hard drive, a sony sata DVD Burner, and a Nvidia geforce 8400 GS.

 

Okay this the story: at first i had a IDE DVD drive and it did not work, then i got some money and bought a sata dvd burner because thats what i saw was needed, then i tryed installing and then it installed just fine, but then it would not boot. every time i tryed to start up i got a kernal panick. then i reinstalled and same and now i do not get any thing no boot from DVD or From HDD

 

Please help!

Dude,

 

It's difficult to help you when you don't specify exactly what happens.

 

But your kernel panik could be cause of graphic drivers, I got it too on a ASUS P5K board with 8800 GTS. Do a fresh install and don't check any graphical drivers! You should then be able to boot into Leopard and continue on from there with graphical update or the graphical hack for Nvidia cards that's floating around here.

Try the Kalyway 10.5.1, that worked for me. Not perfect, since onboard Lan didn't work and I had to patch sound, but I did get it to work. Now I have a perfect setup.

 

When u install Kalyway u get options to install. In this do NOT chose any graphical drivers. This should fix your kernel panic on reboot after install. If the panic is still there, I'm the wrong guy to ask (since I got it to work after removing those drivers), but from my experience here I'd say it's either your graphic card or CPU.

 

If u do manage to make a successful install of Kalyway 10.5.1 u can easily upgrade to 10.5.2 (found in the usual place) and the kernel upgrade (same place). Search for "Kalyway" and "Kernel" to get the respective torrents.
