installed Leopard-10.5.2-AMD-EFI on my pc as a dual boot,


installs all the way until less than a minute to go and freezes, but strangley enough boots up nicely, even giving me the option to go back to xp but....


1. doesn't recognise my PS2? keyboard, usb mouse ok but pointer flashes :(

2. for some reason, it gives me a 1516 inproper dismount error (using partition magic) for the xp (first) partition and won't go past the xp welcome screen where as the MacOS is booting fine - done this twice as I reformatted and started again but yet same result, do I need to install MacOS on first partition instead of xp? :censored2:

3. graphics card seems to be supported and works well - love the wee movie at start up :)


any help appreciated
