    BTW, I bow to you ratvn. You help has been invaluable to me
    You're welcome.
    You're the one who did it. Well done and very good job

    That is just something real quick to be familiar with the process and at least getting Leopard on your laptop. Your goal should be SL as it has better support for your hardware.

    You could check this out to see how Leopard performs. Go to Utilities, there will be two places you should look.

    System Profiler: list of all your hardware devices with ID along with loaded kext that OSX recognized. Should display its version, kernel version, graphics card model/id etc. see if it register the info correctly.

    Activity Monitor: list all of running processes, memory, cpu etc. In the bottom, click cpu tab and see how many black rectangular boxes represent your CPU usage.

    Well done job.

    Just an update: I have figured out how get my keyboard and track pad (that I don't use) to work! I used VooDooPS2Controller 0.98. Now I am happily triple-booting Windows 7 Home Premium, Mac OS X, and Linux Ubuntu.

    Mac OS X runs flawlessly. I even checked with the System Monitor, we're all good there.

    Now I have to get Wi-Fi going if I can... Hopefully there are enough keywords in this thread and some spiders catch them so that others can follow this so dual boot their Acer Aspire 5740-5847's.

    Finally, those who read this may think, "If he has no Wi-Fi, how did he download and install the VooDooPS2Controller?" I have an external storage device that is in NTFS format. I downloaded the voodoos2controller.pkg with Windows and saved it onto there, and I used Finder to locate and install the .pkg

    I'm so glad that you have it works out that well.

    Thanks for coming back to let me know and thanks for the info that others may find useful.

    I actually broke the chain link to multiple booting on my main system, and currently working on it

    EDIT: so it displays 4 cpu boxes representing your 4 threads?

    Sorry for the double post!

    I fixed Leopard.

    Tomorrow after I get up, I will create a noob-friendly installation guide for those who also have an Acer Aspire 5740-5847 and want to dual (or even triple) boot it with Windows 7, Mac OS X Leopard, and (optionally, Linux Ubuntu). And you'll definitely be credited ratvn!

    I can't get Wi-Fi going though. I think I need an AirPort thingy. Not gonna buy one. Linux and Windows get Wi-Fi, so I'll just use them to download and then I'll transfer the any files accordingly.

    Thank you for the kind words.
    It's all your hard work, my friend, as I just added in a few suggestion.

    Wifi is sometimes rough in OSX to find kext for it, and you need model/device ID to get the right one. Look at the Profiler to see what it list for your devices. You can go to kexts.com for dling.

    For my systems, a $10 USB wifi is simple enough.

    The other thing is under Activity monitor, there should be 4 display windows representing your 4 thread cpu usages. Check to see if Leopard recognizes your cpu correctly.

    Thank you for sharing your great tutorial.

    It is very well written.

    I've learned quite a few things from it as well.

    Thanks again.

    Regards
