    Exclamation iPC on ASUS P5n73-AM HELP!!!!!!

    Well, this is my second attempt at installing OSX86.
    My first attempt failed miserably, (My Hard Drive Died - Kalyway 10.5.2).
    I am installing iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 (No its not the Dual Layer Version)

    It would be nice if anyone can help me install it.

    These are the specs for my computer:

    Motherboard: ASUS P5N73-AM (nVidea GeForce 7050 / nForce 610i)
    CPU: Intel Dual Core CPU E2200 2.20 GHz.
    Memory: 2.00GB
    CD-ROM: LG DVD-ROM DRD8160B ATA Device
    HDD: Hitachi HDP725050GLA360 ATA Device (500 GB)
    * Partition 1: Windows 7 (78.13GB NTFS)
    * Partition 2: Empty Space for OSX86 (39.06GB Un-Formatted)
    * Partition 3: Documents, Multimedia (329.04GB NTFS)
    * Partition 4: Music (19.53GB NTFS)

    I have Windows 7 installed. I have the iPC 10.5.6 DVD Burned Ready-to-go.
    Can I have Windows 7 installed on a NTFS partition?
    What setting should I boot OSX86 with (-v?)
    What should I format the partition to? HFS?
    What things should I install? (Drivers, Kernels? )
    How can I dual-boot it? (Windows 7, OSX)
    Any drivers (kexts) I need to install to have everything working?

    Update :

    Ok, I burned the DVD. (iPC 10.5.6)
    Booted it with the following settings in my BIOS.
    SATA = AHCI
    HDD S.M.A.R.T = ON

    and everything else set to normal.

    I booted with the -v flag
    After a 30 seconds

    The "Still Waiting For Root Device Error" pops up and nothing happens after that.

    I really want to get this working, so if you can help me please do.

    I know for a fact that others have also gotten this to working with the same Chipset as mine, but after googling i haven't had much luck.

    I can't answer your "still waiting for root device" issue but I would suggest you try out other distros like iATKOS and iDeneb. There are some answers for that issue so just Google it.

    If successful, you can try this guide to install a dual boot system; http://www.sevenforums.com/installat...dual-boot.html

    Thanks, for your help, I am currently download Kalyway 10.5.2 as I've heard that is a good build.

    Anything else you can suggest?

    My DVD-ROM is connected through IDE and my Hard Drive is connect through SATA and is set as IDE.
    If your wondering, I have also tried AHCI.

    I found that iDeneb v1.5 is good with IDE setting.
