OS X 10.5.6 on a Dell Optiplex GX270
Hello. I know just about anything about Mac's and PC's but when it comes to mixing them together to make a hackintosh, I am a noob. Can anyone out there help me? I'd like to get 10.5.6 Leopard running on this Dell.
Here are the specs:
(hopefully that is enough information, if not, let me know what you need and I will get it!)
Dell Optiplex GX270
Intel Pentium 4 Processor at 2.60 GHZ
40GB IDE Hard Drive
160GB IDE Hard Drive (added)
1GB Ram (plan to upgrade later)
CD-ROM Drive/DVD+-RW Drive
Graphics: nVida GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP 8X (has 64MB vRam)
Ethernet: VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter
Wireless: D-Link AirPlus DWL-G520 Wireless PCI Rev B.
Sound: SoundMAX Integrated digital Audio
I have acquired two different versions of the install disk: “iDenb 1.4” and “XxX 10.5.6 Leo Install Disc Rev1”
Both were burned and verified at 2x on reliable media.
I have tried both. Didn't seem to get anywhere with the iDenb so tried the XxX disk. This one seemed to give me more luck, but I can't get it to fully boot. I'm guessing its because I have the wrong combination of drivers selected. Every time I've tired to do the install (i've tried about 10 – 15 times now) The install will finish and everything will be successful, but when it tires to boot for the first time, it never does. I can do the F8 and -V thing and that will give me lines of code to tell me what is stopping it, but I still can't seem to get it to work.
So I am starting fresh (I always have – I have nothing to loose) and am open for suggestions of things I need to do to get this to work. And by the way, I already tired selecting ALL of the drivers, but that results in an error before the installer even starts saying that “this software can not be installed on this machine” - So I can't just select everything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
How did you customize with XXX? did you select a patched kernel? you need at least to select voodoo or speedstep, cuz your processor dont support vanilla, and btw you can install all the drivers
HP Pavilion Elite m9250f
Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Asus IPIBL-LB MOD BIOS, Intel Quad Core Q6600, 4GB RAM (800mhz), 2x500GB, nVidia 8600GT (Works), ALC888S (Works), Wireless RT73 (Works), LAN (Works) - How to Install

THANKS for the response!
Yes, when customizing the install of XxX I tried both the Voodoo and the SpeedStep (and I think there was a third one too) - and I don't see an option for a vanilla but I've heard that one is a good choice. But thanks for telling me it won't work so I won't waste time with it.
And as for selecting everything if I click all the check boxes and click continue to will take me to the "installing" screen, will check the DVD and then right after that it will jump to a screen that says something like "this software and not be installed on this computer, please restart and try again!"
i have the exact same layout with the exact same problems.
I would like to run 10.5.6 so I can use the updated software programs available through Mac
If anyone has suggestions that would be great.
I am stuck at the screen that says this software can not be installed on this machine.
And you don't believe it, correct?

Your system/BIOS setup, boot options?
I have tried XxX 10.5.6, Ipc 10.5.6
the only thing I have changed in the bios is hyper threading
I dont know anything about changing boot options.
