    Default iPC Leopard 10.5.6 PPF5 Final not installing...

    Hi,

    Seeking advice on how to get past an error "Still seeking root device" (or words to that effect) on my rather dated rig...spec as follows:

    AMD Athie 64 4000+
    ABit AV8 (3rd Eye) mainboard (VIA K8T800P-8237 chipset)
    2GB Patriot DDR400 RAM
    Maxtor 6B250R0 250GB IDE HDD
    Seagate ST3500630A 500GB IDE HDD
    2 x Maxtor SATA I 120GB HDD's (Striped)
    PowerColor Radeon 3650 HD (AGP) Graphics
    2 x M-Audio Delta Series soundcards (Audiophile 2496 and 410 PCI)

    As far as I'm aware, I prepped the drive properly having used Partition Magic 8.0 (had a 'mare with Acronis OS Loader and had to restore the MBR with a Boot Disk).

    Anyone managed to get this version running on this board? I am thinking that the SATA chipset could be causing the issue but uncertain. I've tried disabling it in the BIOS to no avail.

    Any help would be gratefully received...thanks in advance.

    Tek

    Any suggestions?

    Perhaps another version (eg. Kalyway)?

    Hi teknological,

    I'm trying to install iPC osx86 10.5.6 on the same motherboard. Did it work for you ? What drivers did you choose in the installation process ?

    Cheers
