    Default Installing Leopard on MSI P35 Neo2

    Well I have lost count how many distro's I have tried now. Only time I managed to get a working system was a couple of years ago with I think, 4.7 JAS but even that used to crash quite often.

    Recently I have triead iAtkos 5.5 and iPC10.5.6, both install fine but on rebooting both get as far as the apple logo and then either continually reboot as with iPC or sit there with a X type graphic on the loading screen with iAtkos.

    One thing, not sure if this is important but iPC on install didn't have any customization options, had three listed but none you could choose anything from.

    System spec is as follows :

    Intel Dual Core CPU E2180
    2gb Patriot Ram
    MSI P35 Neo2 Motherboard
    Using On Board Sound (Realtek ALC888)
    Realtek 8111B Lan
    ATI 4850 512mb Graphics Card
    Liteon 20A1S Sata DVD-RW
    Pioneer DVR-215 Sata DVD-RW
    Seagate Baracuda 7200.7 160gb Sata Hard Drive
    MS PS2 Keyboard
    MS Usb Mouse

    I realise there are a lot of people asking similar questions about why their install fails to work but perhaps there is someone out there who could suggest perhaps a different distro that would work or a different way of installing etc?

    To install in this mobo I think you need to MOD your BIOS or Install Retail OSX with DSDT Patch, theres some members here with that mobo, search a bit to know how they did it...
