    Default Little Help About My Hardware

    First post here, so hey people,

    I have a pretty well spec'd desktop here, and i was wondering if everything would be ok to install Leo4all.

    I have a MacBook, the 2nd most recent one, and would just love to get Leopard installed on my main desktop.

    My hardware is as follows,

    Gigabyte P35-DS3 Motherboard
    2GB DDR2 Corsair RAM
    2 HDD's at 250GB
    1 Samsung SATA DVD/RW Drive
    Q6600 Quad-Core Intel Processor, OC'D to 3.00GHz
    ATI Radeon HD3870 Graphics Card

    I tried to install iATKOS before and it froze at various points when trying to proceed to install, so i was wondering if this Leo4all would be better?

    I would appreciate any help you professionals could give me, thanks for your time.

    Try to enable AHCI Sata Support and XD bit, if iatkos doesnt work try with another distro like leo4all v3 or JaS, you also can try this in darwin.

    Type:
    cpus=1 -v
    good luck

    Would i enable AHCI Sata support in the BIOS?

    Also where would i type "cpus=1 -v " when im booking off of iATKOS? I dont know if it helps but i remember when i was tyring to install iATKOS it came up a little circle with a line through it...? Dont know if that gives you any ideas whats causing the problem.

    Thanks for your reply

    Ok, boot into the dvd and you will see darwin, then a counter with 10 seconds or something, press F8 and will able to type: cpus=1 -v

    About the AHCI, yeah in the BIOS around your Hard Drive Settings
