    Default Install Leopard on Compaq Presario F700 Series

    OK so I did a lot of researching and couldn't find anything on my laptop. I've tried most or all of the distros available that are compatible with my specs and I've gotten no where. Ive been shot down constantly with kernel panics and the thing not getting to the install page, or getting it to read my hard drive when i go to disk utility. I even went as far as formatting a partition to hfs+ with paragon partition manager. I have a Compaq Presario F700 Series and it seems that their is little information for this laptop. I have found several methods and attempted to install mac such as trying an external hard drive. The problem is I don't have one. I tried installing it an old 8gb mp3 player (mass storage) but it simply wouldn't boot after installation. The distros that I have used are:
    -iPC Universal
    -Leo4allv3
    -LawlessPPC
    -iDeneb
    -iKalyway
    -Jas 10.4.8
    *EDIT*
    SL by Hazard AMD/Intel/SSE2/SSE3
    SL AMD not sure which distro just tried for hell of it cuz it was on the bay lol
    I also tried booting with Empire EFI, it would not work. I dont have a external hardrive to boot from and i have a ghetto phoenix bios that which limits me to barely configuring the anything at all. Ive asked this question at InsanelyMac but no one would reply so im hoping that you guys could help me because google just isnt doing it. Here are my specs:

    sorry if i wasnt so clear at first.
    been googling for weeks now and havent found any answers besides the same old "get a new distro" or "burn at slower speed." i have tried
    iDeneb - boot in -f, -v, -x, and even rd=disk0s1 always get kernel panic or when it does make it to install screen it cant find my hd.
    iKalyway- same as ideneb
    ipc- kernel panic
    lawlessppc - wont even get to installation screen
    leo4allv3 - same as lawless
    leo4allv4.1 - same as v3
    leo4allv4.1 (ppf) same as v3
    jas 10.4.8 - gets to install screen but no hd
    once again i have tried all the boot modes
    i have ata hardrive
    a gay phoenix bios with limited settings
    and have no experience whatsoever in injecting kernels [if dats the case]
    and still no replys

    I have a similar layout with a Compaq Presario CA60 212US. I cannot get iATKOS v4a, iATKOS v7, Kalyway 10.5.2, or a retail disk using boot 132 or EFI. Originally, I thought it was the AMD processor, but I'm starting to think, that it is the motherboard. Not really sure, that is just my assumption. I can get iATKOS v4a to work on VMWare Player after messing around with it. It's not the same though. I think I'm about to give up and buy a new laptop. Sorry that I can't be of more help, but I just wanted to let you know that there are other people in the same situation.

    its made it to installer before though? and you couldn't see hd? did you click disc utility at the top of the installer and it still doesn't show up? pretty sure it should. and then you have to have a partition for your mac os X that you want to install you can create one there if you wish or make one before eitherway it has to be a journeled partition sorry if i wasn't really clear about this lol

    Yes most of them make it to the installer except lawlessppc leo4all (both versions) and snow leopard by hazard. and also, no distro can see my hardrive. Some only see the dvd or none at all. Ive tried installing on 8gb USB Flash Drive and I get kernel panics after restart. I dnt have an external hdd though it seems like that would be the only solution :/ or maybe it would work if i could boot the dvd off a usb flash but i dnt know how
