    Default Boot-132 Issue - Could really use a hand!

    Okay, so I've no idea what's going on here, whether it's normal, not normal, a problem, a time sink or whatever, but at the moment my screen looks like this:



    This is immediately after starting with the boot 132 CD, switching to the OSX install CD, and hitting enter. It's been like this for almost half an hour now, and I'm wondering if it's meant to or not.

    I'm installing onto a hard disk that's full of windows crap, and had assumed the install would allow me to format. I suppose this could well be the format, or it could be that it hates me and won't work.

    Either way, is this normal, if so how long can I expect it to take/what is it doing, and if not what do I do about it?

    Thanks very much guys!

    Okay, so having tried again in verbose mode, I now see that I'm getting an error with storage devices.

    I'm assuming this is because I'm using SATA as IDE instead of AHCI. I have no IDE stuff to use unfortunately, so would greatly appreciate a hand. My problem is that I have an Asus P5K, which does not have AHCI (something to do with licensing issues apparently). If anyone knows a way of making AHCI work on the P5K that doesn't require a floppy drive, I'd really appreciate it!

    Also I'd like to know if the install of Leopard will allow me to format the hard disk or whether that needs to be done in advance, and if that's the case, how I should do it?

    Thanks again guys!

    Unhappy same delima

    I've been trying to install the Retail Leopard DVD on my Lenovo 3000 for past three days but no success. I finally got it to pass that apple logo screen but it just gets stuck at a "Blue Screen" and thd DVD ROM stops. I also did the run with diagnostics and it will say lots of stuff like:
    xxxxx
    Mac framework successfully initiated.
    xxx
    x
    x
    x
    GE(something) graphics family doest not exit..

    and after couple of these messages, it'll just hault

    I've tried the Generic.iso and the modified one. both give me same problem. I'm guessing the bootCDs are good it has something to do with my Intel architecture 965... I read somewhere that i need to add JaS......zip to my initrd.img and then try, but i don't know what that is...

    Help people....

    PS: my dvd rom(on my laptop) is ATA ( i don't know whats IDE or SATA)
