    Default 10.5.6 on a asus p6t problems

    I am new to all of this, and i really dont understand all that much. Like adding kext's and what not.

    I am using a retail copy of 10.5.6. following this link.
    [How To] Install Leopard Retail DVD on ASUS P6T Deluxe LGA 1366 (core i7) - InsanelyMac Forum

    Im trying to boot to the boot-132 at the bottom of the first post to start the installation. I have follows all the instructions for updating my bios. current verion 0403. Also have all the settings that currently match that post.

    When trying to boot, I am gettin an error.
    isolinux 3.63: Image Checksum error, sorry.
    Boot failed: press any key and try again.

    I thought maybe the file i downloaded was bad. so i download it again and also from another pc. Burned it out using the slowest possible speed. Same error.

    current rig setup.
    asus p6t
    icore 7 920
    6 gig ddr3
    500 gig Seagate sata 2.
    9800 gtx
    ide dual layer dvd burner.

    I have no addtional hardware. The hard drive is brand new. I tried this with a partition on it and without one. Is there something I am missing or something i am not doing right? Could someone steer me in the right direction.

    Default i7 920 Asus P6t

    I am working with a similar machine:
    CPU: Intel Core i7 920
    Mobo: Asus P6T
    RAM: 6Gb DDR3 1333Mhz
    HD: WD 320Gb Sata 2
    DVD-RW DL: LG Super Multi 22x Sata
    Video: Sapphire Radeon HD 3650 512Mb PCI

    You are using the right guide. Patience and attention to detail are key.

    The "Asus P6t Deluxe Boot-132 v3" download link at the bottom is free from Badongo.
    Sign up for the free account and then wait for the "download now" box to show up.
    It's a pain but it works.

    I haven't got past DSDT Patching and EFI partition setup, but at least OS X is running.
    Graphics, Sound and LAN should be interesting.

    Success with the iPC OSx86 on another home-build made me bold, but loading kexts and patches and stuff are a trip.
    I'll keep you posted with my progress.
