I've been searching everywhere but i cant seem to get my problem solved.

I was trying to install osx on my laptop (Acer Aspire 5101 AWLMI (AMD Turion64@2GHz CPU , 1GB RAM, 110GB HD, ATI Radeon Xpress 1100M card). I used Zephyroths 10.5.1 disc followed everystep on a tutorial i found on this forum. Unfortunately my HDD is a SATA drive so the installer didn't see the drive. I took out the drive and put it in a USB shell (device??thingy?) and then the installer saw the drive and i could complete the install. But afterwords when i tried to boot the system it didn't start, all i could see was a black screen with a cursor blinking in the upperleft corner of the screen. I removed the drive from the USB thingy and put it back in the laptop but the same black screen turned up. This i reckon is becuse of the SATA HDD.

So is there anyone who knows how i can get the istaller to recognize my HDD and let me boot into OSX or if there is some other Osx release that will work with my laptop, doesn't have to be leopard could be tiger aswell aslong as its osx.. so fed up with windows and linux...
