    Exclamation iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Post-Install help? HP Pavilion a6357c Desktop PC

    Hey guys, this is my first post and have searched for answers but can't seem to find any Anyways i'm a newbie at this *sorry* lol but usually pick up on things pretty quick. I have been playin and playin with installing this for the past three days. And frankly i'm just getting fustrated!

    All started a few days ago when a friend told me about Leopard being available for PC... So i searched craigslist and bought a lisence (just for supportive reasons) and went ahead and downloaded iPC OSx86 Universal FINAL 10.5.6. I was told it was a tricky install and you have to know EVERY hardware component you have so i used EVEREST Ultimate to determine everything I have.

    So I jotted down all the specs I could find and found the appropriate drivers in the install to use (as far as I could tell) and have been failing Miserably!! I've only had a successful install once and that was by just using a kernal and chipset driver. The other times it either hangs up at the white apple screen with the scroller, get a blue screen that stays or a grey screen that i can move my mouse around in but nothing ever happens, I DID however manage to have a successful install to the point where it gets past all that (after long waitings at the mentioned above screens) where it goes to the little video thing, but then get stuck at the "Before you begin.. Keyboard not connected" screen where My keyboard and mouse doesn't work.

    The blue screen seems to come more when I pick the NVidia drivers i've noticed. not sure whats up with that.. Anyhow i'll get to my Computer info, hardware specs, and install options i've chosen.

    I have tried many different combos and the only way i got it to go fully into it at all was with this setup, and still had weird issues getting into it. ->

    -9.5.0 Voodoo Kernal
    -nVidia MCP67 Chipset
    no other options picked..

    SOOOO after babbling so much I hope I may get some help with this lol.. If there is a solution to any of these problems i apologize for posting and please direct me in the right way.. I REALLY appreciate any help! THANKS!! (My name is Mike by the way =))

    Thanks for the link! However, it seems it is for support of the nforce 5 and 6 boards with Intel processors.. (Not sure if the Nettle2 mobo is concidered a 5 or 6 board or not LOL)

    Thumbs up iPC (almost) successfully installation on AMD Athlon X2 x64

    Hi! I recently have downloaded iPC 10.5.6 (Leopard) and installed in my AMD based PC.
    My uprocessor is an Athlon X2 64bits based and it supports SSE3 (instruction set).
    The 'first' 17 times that I have trying to install iPC distro something was failing, but after take a while for think in other matters, I try again but without kexts (drivers), well just the one about the chipset and finally get working my iPC.
    I was able to (post) install QuickTime 7 and iTunes 9.
    Now I'm trying to fix the audio and network problems.

    So, you can try to install iPC installing just your chipset and then installing your devices.

    Good luck!
