    Default HP g62-110so...HELP!!!

    Hi...pheww, my first post at hackint0sh!
    well, i have this notebook, hp g62 (as beforementioned) ,
    and trying to install mac os x on it... 2 problems!
    1; when i go into the os x installer (ideneb 10.5.7) i can't find my hdd...AT ALL!
    i can see my dvd, but no harddisk. can i fix this without risking my computer because of switching from acpi to sata?
    2; i already have 4 primary partitions...can i convert my ubuntu partition to a logical without formatting?
    specs: HP G62-100 Notebook PC series- HP G62-110SO Notebook PC Product Specifications - c02079123 - HP Business Support Center

    Cheers,
    Christianfs1

    You could post your CPU/chipsets/video. Is there option for SATA to AHCI in BIOS?
    What partition are you planning for OSX?

    EDIT: Your thread is moved to the correct section as the question is pertaining to Leopard installation problem.

    can't you just check the link?
    i'm planning to use my ubuntu swap, delete it, shrink my windows partition, then make a new primary partition, but i don't know if it's safe...searched all over the web, but they don't tell how to do it, if there is some special thing to do first. i have 4 gigs of ram, so it isn't really needed, right?

    1. You should check your partition scheme carefully. All OSX need is a primary one. Your Unbutu by default installation usually won't be primary.

    2. There is no problem utilizing you 4GB RAM.

    3. With OSX installation, Unbutu bootloader would be taken over. So make your preparation.

    4. What are other options for SATA in your BIOS?

    there are no options to configure, other than boot order, quick-keys, and fan.

    1. i know, and that's what frustrates me. if that would've been the problem, it would have detected my windows partition for example.
    3. believe me, i will do so
    2. so...it's safe to delete swap?

    To be safe, turn it off or reconfigure your Linux before deletion.
    There are quite a few problems with your current setup, as mentioned in my earlier post, so work out your solutions first.
    Review proper guides/tuts and have your plan ready, otherwise it could be opening a can of worm.

    Well, i deleted my ubuntu partition, fixed bootmgr, deleted my linux partitions, and i'm now running ubuntu with wubi!! (which i intended to do in the first place, but my relative recommended me to do otherwise)
    now, my partition scheme look like this:

    windows partition : ~465 gigs
    Windows system reserved : ~105 mb's

    i'm just gonna partition my windows partition so i get a ~50-100 gig unallocated, and just partition it with the osx utility. (please correct me if there's anything wrong here )
    so now i can have another primary partition... is the puzzle solved?

    Cheers

    Default So...?

    so, what version of osx would you recommend me? do i need some kexts, and how do i actually install them is that's gonna be nescessary?
    the cpu and gpu is important, because the main reason for me to install osx is to use final cut pro/iMovie ! sound and wifi is crucial too
