    Default iDeneb can't see any drive to install

    Hi. I have a problem when I'm going to install iDeneb on my pc. The CD loads up perfect but when I have to chose a drive to install it in I see nothing. Here is a picture of it:

    I have 2 hdds on my computer. I have made a partition on my second hdd (not c and at the back of the drive) so install iDeneb on.
    I have done nothing on my computer except that. I have only downloaded iDeneb and burned it on a dvd (4x speed).

    Here is what my computer are made of:
    * Intel Core 2 duo E4500 2.2GHz (processor)
    * Asus P5K (motherboard)
    * 4x Corasair Value S. PC5300 DDR2 1024mb (ram)
    * Radeon X1950GF 512mb (Graphic card)

    Please help me. I really need mac on my computer. Should I download any other "Mac on pc" software?

    Thanks!

    Hiya, danell and welcome

    Use Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. In Disk Utility, Select your Partition, and format you should choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). After partitioning, quit Disk Utility to return to the Leopard Installer. Now you have be able to see your Partition ;>

    Good luck ^_^

    Hi. I have the same problem. I tried going to the Disk Utilities menu but it did not list any partitions for me to select as u mentioned. There was a Verify button and a Create Image button too, but again, no partitions were listed to format or do anything and when i try to perform any other functions such as creating the image, it says i dont have the rights and gives me an error along with it.

    Please Help

    Hello
    The drive issue can be fixed by using the Disk Tool (on the menu) to setup the destination disk.

    By the way, I've documented my extremely successful hackintosh installation, on a new blog of my own.
    I'm also moving forward and adding a lot of other interesting stuff and fixes along the way, so I hope you find my blog interesting.
    Keep up the good job guys! Macs deserve a chance in this Windows infested world.
