NEED HELP!! Problems installing Leopard on my Dell 1525
I just recently downloaded the iATKOS i5 patched .iso for Intel and I've come across a lot of problems. I'm am trying to dual boot with Windows Vista on my Dell 1525. Although it took a lot of effort and a lot of trial and error I got to the point where I was ready to install.
I inserted the disk, choose the destination, customized it (I have tried many different customizations) and installed it. When I restarted the computer as I was told to do, the white loading screen with the apple and loading circle below it appeared. It did it's thing and when it was finished the screen went Blue for a few seconds and then went black.
I left it for a long while and after about 30 mins or so, the screen changed to: half of the login screen, I could see part of the white login box, and I could see my mouse when I moved the mouse to the section of the scree I could see. But the mouse would stop when it hit the black part of the screen. It was almost as if the entire screen was offset.
This is the result I get when I customize the installation so that I CAN't upgrade. When I customize it so I can upgrade and then restart in the "-v" mode then it gives me the error:
MAC Framework successfully initialized using 16384 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers
[TSC] delta: 66, skipping synchronization. (CPU1)
and it stops there... and stays there forever... (well, I guess I've only left it there for 15 minutes ish.
If there any ways any one can help me?? Is there a phone number I can call for tech support? This is soooo important to me. But I guess not important enough to go out and by a mac.
