    I have one problem with this method, the keyboard isn't working, is there any way i can get the correct keyboard setting on it before the install or do I have to install it to get the keyboard to work?

    in that case, you have to configure your boot cd to load the keyboard driver,
    Have you try empireEFI boot cd (it's customed for snow retail instalation) instead of boot 132? google prasys, he knows

    the guide outlined by Prasys requires you to have a working version already installed does it not? and I'm looking up empireEFI, and i only have the 10.5 Install disk, i don't have Snow.

    Hi,
    What 10.5 is it? You don't have to have SL to get OSX in there. As long as you are prepared and have a primary partition for it then you can start the installation.
    That guide uses the retail DVD method, which is good if that is what you want.
    The easiest way is to use a distro, Leo or SL, then make your installation. Then you can install retail Leo or SL from that.

    all the disc says is Version 10.5 2Z691-6037-A its a retail disc. no matter how many times I try or reformat the drive to Mac Extended (journaled) it wont do it. and I cant get it to GUID. If I can figure out how to get the Keyboard working before the install I know I can get it to install correctly.

    Hi,
    Just a quick suggestion. Apple retail DVD is designed not to load correctly or not completely on non-apple pc. That is why they have to use premade boot loader/system like empireEFI, Boot132 etc. to start the installation process using retail DVD.
    Secondly, your GUID partition may render your vista inoperable. You can install that DVD into an MBR partition with comparable performance as with GUID.
    Regards,

    yeah thats why I need to have a bootloader that enables me to use my keyboard so I can make use of the MBR partition.

    i was just referrring the empireefi in prasys page although it has alots of info, but you know what you want...

    So basically, you need to download empireefi iso,burn into a cd (but before, you can customize it to put your kexts/driver for keyb, if you want , but it's already loaded with mostly needed driver), boot your pc with empireefi, let it load the bootloader and drivers, swap the cd with the retail osx disk, after choosing the language (if you boot it successfuly)let it load mac osx installer application, then follow this guide to patch your installer.

    how's that sound.. easy..no need running osx..just the retail disk.
    good luck

    Ok I used EmpireEFI and got a Kernal Panic, I used TonyMacX86's Bootloader, got a kernal panic, (I think tony's is a version of Empire as they look almost exactly the same.) should I find out what the kernal panic is or try an alternative method?
