I've spent the last 5 hours of my life going crazy trying to figure out how to make this work. When I get to the part where it asks me to select the drive to install Leopard on it doesn't find anything. Even when I go to disk utility it doesn't find anything. Please help me please, if someone can help me get this running I will give you my Paypal account with $12 in it. I know it seems a desperate, but I am! I feel like giving up, Ive wasted so much time, someone please help me!

 

Please

hmm.. I have an idea you could try...

 

Look for something called "Make kalyway Bootable Disc" and burn it to disc and run it like the OS installation disc... your hardrive should show up on this.. wipe the HDD to mac os extended jounaled and then install the file on the disc (it makes the bootloader work)

 

after installing that quickly swap discs and put the iaktos one in .. and boot from it.. run like normal and hopefuly your HDD will show? if not try kalyway or iaktos r3 (R3 Will work i think)

How do you mean: "doesn't find anything"? Anything in Disk Utility? I had similiar problem. Your DVD drive is connected as PATA (IDE), right? Really, try to connect some sort of USB disc (anything with memory - MP3 players etc.) and we'll see.

 

Please fill your configuration into signature, everything will be easier!

urgonh8me is helping me get iATKOS_r3(thanks man!), but that should fix it right? Or is it something else that's wrong?

by any chance is your laptop a toshiba saterlite?

I have on lieing around with the same specs but i attempted a tiger install and it just takes hours! seriously the installation takes hours and i just dont get to the end :S

Yep, a Toshiba Satellite A110. Im looking to just test if Leopard works on this optimally because I need to get a new computer soon. It can either be a 2gb, 320gb HDD, 2.4ghz core 2 duo desktop, or with Apple's Mac Tax, a Mac Mini :lol: Im really hoping to just get Leopard on this laptop working and then try it on a much more powerful desktop.

I don't know. It seem you have the same problem as me. Only solution is injecting chipset drivers into installation DVD. But to do this, you need functional Mac OS X. If you don't have it, you should try older Mac OS X, Tiger (for example JaS 10.4.8). It is much easier to istall. Your processor has got core Yohan with SSE3, ATI X200 is supported, try 10.4.X first.

 

Nobody who I met had Mac. Apple is very exotic and unknown company in eastern Europe. In our country costs MacBook more than 2.5x more expensive than in USA. So... damn. :hysterical: Thanks to importer.

Hi, To Fix This Problem, Go To Your BIOS (Hit Del Or F2 While The Computer First Is Switched On), Find An Area There That Give You An Option Of SATA, AHCI And Something Else. Select AHCI. Leave That Menu And Press F10 To Save Changes.
