    Default I/0 error cannot format in ideneb

    Specs-

    Dell Dimension 4500 (thought it was a 4600 when i posted yesterday...WRONG haha)
    9800 pro 128 mb
    80gig hard drive
    Windows XP

    So, I started the install 10.5.6,(org meant to do 10.5.5 but looked at the wrong one) anywho, after I booted from the Cd, I had many failed attempts that froze, but eventually every 4-5 times i get to the install screen.

    I open disk utility to try to partion the drive to mac extended (journaled) But
    <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/ezwidor/DSC_0062.jpg">



    but to no avail, every drive, even fat32. I cannot format any of the drives and get the error.

    input / output error.

    I thought of reformating from my install xp disc, but unfortunatly i cant find it.

    Is there any other way for me to go about getting a this volume ready to be installed? and is there any reason why only sometimes it loads from the cd boat?

    Id appreciate any help, also..any reason i should install 10.5.5 instead?

    Click on the Drive (not disk0s1).
    Click on partition
    choose 1,2,3 partitions (what ever you want)
    click on options and choose mbr
    then click partiton.

    If you get error, quit diskutil and run it again

    In your bios setting picture .... move the hard drive to primary IDE master.
    You need to jumper the drive if you are not using CS (cable select).
    Best is to set the drive as Master via jumper setting
