    Default Install of iDENEB 10.5.5 hanging

    I have moderate computer building/programming skills (albeit self taught with some schooling thrown in about ten years ago...so yea, noob) and am trying to get ideneb 1.3 10.5.5 on my pc. first, I'll list specs I know right off hand.

    Motherboard is ASRock G31M-s
    Processor is Pentium 4 dual core e2160 1.8g OC'd to 2.4g
    RAM is 4g DIMM
    Video and audio are onboard
    HDD is WDD 320g plugged into SATA 2
    DVD burner is LG super multi w/lightscribe
    bios is upgradeable American Megatrends v P1.00

    I have been researching for days on how I can make this work and have come up with nothing. Now, I'll give the error message:

    Waiting for boot volume with UUID blahblahblah
    Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>blahblahblah

    I have tried:
    -x -v
    -f -v
    platform=x86pc -v
    platform=acpi -v
    rd=disk0 (and 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,9999999)
    rd=disk0s1 (also, through all the numbers you can think)
    -s mount -uw /touch blahblahblah
    turning off onboard LAN through BIOS
    Speedstep is enabled

    I can't get an install, I can't get into the OS to select anything to format the HDD. It doesnt even begin to load the OS- this happens within 30 seconds of hitting -v

    Legacy USB is enabled (since I have a USB keyboard and wireless dongle).

    I have tried researching and making several attempts on my own before turning to the forums, so hopefully this won't be a complete annoyance to anyone that decides to look and try to help.

    I am anxiously awaiting assistance!

    -stares at the forums, in wait-

    One last thing that may be the key here. When I downloaded iDeneb an MD5 file came with it...what do I do with that file in relationship to the iso?

    How many one last thing's do you have?
    Does your BIOS have option for SATA to AHCI?
    Your DVD and HDD are SATA types?
    Boot options: -x -v cpus=1 (and busratio=20 if needed)?

    both SATA, and yes SATA and AHCI. HDD in SATAII_2 and DVD set to master

    The error had to do with OSX installer could not ID your DVD drive and its content.
    Real quick way that you can try is to use an ext. DVD drive/IDE DVD (if available) to see if you can get through that error.
    Disable USB legacy and see if you can change BIOS options for DVD drive first.

    problem is I have a usb keyboard & have legacy on to access startup options. and when I set my dvd drive first the dvd won't boot. so I'm guessing I should go old school with a keyboard then?

    USB legacy disabling sometimes required but not always.

    As for Leopard installation, the best combination is AHCI SATA HDD with IDE DVD drive.

    Check your board/BIOS options to see if you could change just the SATA DVD drive port (or any SATA port) to IDE/compatible mode (instead of SATA native) while still retaining HDD at AHCI mode.

    Changed IDE to compatible mode, install of ideneb still hanging at 'waiting for boot volume with UUID...' and 'waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>...' error messages. Thanks for your help by the way. I'm at my wits end and my brain is scrambled at this point so its good to have some fresh ideas lol

    ok, I JUST now noticed while tinkering that when I attempt to load iDeneb, the initial setup screen (Darwin) shows the drive selected as this-

    HD (111,1) iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5

    ...soooo does this mean that it's not recognizing my HDD at all possibly, and that it's only seeing my dvd drive?
