I'm trying to install OS X Leopard on my Thinkpad T43p. I'm using this release to install:
http://osx.kbot.de/comments.php?Disc...&page=1#Item_0 , because it is for machines that don't come with SSE3 which my Pentium M probably doesn't understand. As my hdd is small, I want to install OS X to an external USB drive. The installation went well. I formatted the external drive (with MBR, not GUID) and installed OS X. I customized the Installation and told it to install the MBR bootloader. My Laptop is able to boot from USB but when I select the USB drive as the primary boot device in the bios list, it loads until after the BIOS screen and then hangs with a blank prompt and the blinking _ sign in the top left corner.
I think my problem is either related to MBR problems (maybe I need another boot loader on that drive like Grub?) or to problems of my laptop booting from USB.
Does anyone have an idea what I might do about this?
Sorry for asking here. I've been googling around for a while now but it's not that easy to find useful information about this. Not many people seem to want OS X on an external hdd.
Thanks a lot for your patience and help.
