    Default install hangs when creating partition

    Hi all, thought I'd give this hackintosh malarkey a go since I've tried most falvours of linux and windows already. I'm using IPC 10.5.5 install on a p4 3.4GHZ, abit as8 mobo, 1 gb ram and 120GB IDE HD. I get the install page up, and can open the disk utility. However, when I try to create the boot partition on my hd it falls over. It's not a fresh hd, but I have wiped the partition using gparted on a live cd.

    Any ideas?

    never mind, I installed a copy of macdrive and formatted it to whatever fs macs use.

    Having some other issues now, but I'll work through them and see what happens! Main one is that it installs fine then does nothing after reboot... joy

    Ok, on my 5th install now and starting to get a little despondent.

    Here's what I have in my test box:

    P4 3.4GHz
    Abit AS8
    nVidia 6600gt
    1GB RAM
    120GB IDE HD

    Tried it with the following:
    voodoo, nvidia 128, icXX, alc880

    But all I get is a disk failure message and a sad feeling
