hey, i would reccomend downloading the leopard 10.5.2 amd from TPB (zephyroth). I had the same issues you're mentioning above with all of the other flavors of the AMD release. I have an hp dv6500 AMD and have leopard 10.5.2 installed on it. Now I still can't get it to see the SATA, but I have osx installed on an external HD and I think it's wonderful. Really fast too. So just PM me if you need more info.

This board is for post-installation issues. You're asking in the wrong place.


If your harddrives are invisible it's because your BIOS settings are wrong or the distribution you are using is incompatible with your drive controller (brand and model of drive doesn't matter at all).


Please continue in the correct forum.
