[Install] Kalyway 10.5.1 Woes
Here's what I've done so far with some level of success: I boot off the Install DVD using the vanilla kernel (boot: vanilla -v). I formated my external drive with a single partition (GUID partition table)... It successfully formats the drive... I chose to Install the Vanilla kernel packages, along side with the GUID EFI bootloader (no extra drivers were picked at installation). I wait 20minutes or so for Leopard to complete install. I reboot - I get a nasty kernel panic! I asked a friend, he told me to remove the NVDAResman.kext. This got me loading the GUI correctly, I thought I might have a successful install after all.. Well.. I was wrong.. and here is where I need your help!
I boot up - It starts up with the "Before you begin screen", telling me it doesn't know what my keyboard layout is. I follow the instructions to initialize the keyboard. I chose U.S as my layout (as I am a silly American..). Next screen says "Welcome".. I pick once again U.S. as my language. All seems well.. Now here's where I get stuck. I get to the "Do you already own a Mac?" prompt - I leave it at the default value (that is I don't have an existing Mac I wish to restore data from). It sits for a bit.. I see/hear my HD doing something.. mean while it gives me the colorful wheel waiting icon.. Then it starts back over from the beginning asking me to initialize my keyboard again! I go through the process once again, same result happens.
I cannot seem to get it to move on to create my account and such.. any ideas folks? Do I need to upgrade from an existing install with this release? I've tried to debug with boot -v, but it does not seem to be very helpful. I do not see any errors that would cause a complete stop..FYI once I'm in single user mode - my keyboard does work! I'm also able to do command q and shutdown the while it has the setup screens up, keyboard works - as does the mouse.
-- Specs --
Processor: Intel Dual Core E6600, 2.4ghz, 4M cache

(My external USB drive is 130gb(IDE I believe))
Video: Nvida GeForce 83000 GS (128 mb)
Sound: On-board Conextant CX23880
USB Keyboard and Mouse.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
I'm going to install a patched kernel instead of the vanilla one and see how it goes... After some sleep this idea came into my head...
