    Does it matter that my motherboard is slightly different than yours, and the fact that yours is an 'elite' and mine is not?
    Thanks for the link.

    if you read the guide and check the OLD Comments, theres lots of HP no elites that got success, and the guide have support for 2 mobos:

    IPIBL-LA and IPIBL-LB

    I'm sure someone with similar specs got success, you can check every single page if you want XD

    OK, I got Leopard installed, set my BIOS up according to how you had it, I am using 5.08, restarted the computer once Leopard installed, the Apple is on the screen and its loading..

    How long does this usually take?
    Its been going for a short while, I'm going to leave it and keep you guys updated on what happens.

    OK, I got Leopard running!
    I ended up messing up my Vista partition.
    My plan was, to see if I can get Leopard up and running sucessfully, then sort out the bootup.

    I ended up trying to fix Vista so I could go back into it, it appeared that after a few attempts of trying to repair it, it was junk.
    So I just said screw it, and used my vista partition as my OSX space.

    So now, I no longer have my Vista install, its only OSX.
    Not a big deal though.

    I just don't know what the specifications of my PC is.
    I don't have LAN or anything right now...
    Is there a way I can find out what hardware is in my pc?
    Hp's website doesn't give any details
