Below you will find the instructions I followed to try to install the Leopard 10.5 Flat image on my machine. Everything seems to go good till I restart my machine and it tries to install Leopard. My machine just keeps rebooting over and over and never gets anywhere. I hit F8 and it takes me to a screen where I can hit enter to install Leopard and I type -v. It flashed like 5 lines of text really fast and rebooted again. I tried -x and it says installing darwin then 5 seconds later just reboots.

My hardware is as follows:

AMD 64 3000+ (first Series)
1 gig of DDR 400 Ram
Geforce 7300GT PCI Video Card
Cheap motherboard with onboard sound and Lan.
Maxtor 100gig Sata hard drive that I installed the Leopard image on with the directions below.

Help!!


here's how to install osx 10.5 leopard 9a581 in your intel/amd sse3 machine without the use of a single DVD!

you need at least 20 GB free space on a ntfs partition and an entire disk to spare. it's all patched with the BrazilMAC patch.

1. grab the torrent.
2. extract leopard-x86.rar to the folder
3. open compmgmt.msc and select Disk Management
4. remember what disk (Disk 0, Disk 1 etc) you want to install to
5. remove any existing partitions on that disk by right clicking and selecting 'Delete Volume' and 'Delete Partition'
6. copy the .bat file for the selected disk to the folder

WARNING!! selecting the wrong file may result in a wiped disk!!

7. execute the .bat file and wait..
8. reboot into the created disk [by pressing Esc, F12 or whatever your mainbord wants] and boot into a fresh osX 10.5 install, you can now
select your login info, location and so on.
9. if you wanna dualboot from vista, download EasyBCD...
10. if you're having trouble to boot into os x ,press F8 when booting and type -v at the boot screen to see whats wrong and then consult some osx86 forum.
