    Yep, you definitely can install from a hd partition instead of DVD. Look for " leopard flat " on the pirate bay or which ever torrent site you prefer.

    I installed from HD myself, since I didn't have a SATA DVD drive to boot the patched leopard with my P5k Deluxe

    The process was pretty simple. Run the included .bat file with the correct partition, and it will install the entire leopard to the partition of your choice. ( 0, 1, 2, etc )

    After its done installing, simply boot into the installed partition, create a account, and you'll be on the mac interface in no time.

    The only problem Ive ran into so far is since I have no clue how to use the osx.. its a bit hard for me to figure out how to get on board sound and LAN working.. ( basicaly installing or editing the proper kext )

    It's a work in progress.. and I'll have to learn as I go ! good luck with your install !

    I looked for it in the pirate bay, SSE3 is a requirement for it, I only have SSE2.
    I don't own a DVD drive, so any way I can install from HD and not need SSE3?
    EDIT: Nevermind, I do have SSE3
