Problems Booting after "Successful Installation"
I just installed retail OSX Leopard via generic.iso bootloader 132 on my new build with everything appearing to have gone well and with Leopard showing a successful installation. Ethernet connection worked and I was able to download OSxTools and install EFI Chameleon and install recommended Kexts.
However, after being prompted to restart from OSxTools, I am unable to reboot off my Boot Drive.
When I reboot my computer, I am brought to the Bios instead of OSxLeopard. Having installed the EFI, it SHOULD be booting directly into Leopard, but it is not.
Looking at the –v report on my hard drive I get a message highlighted in yellow that says “Failed to load extension com.apple.driver.appleAHCIPort”. Above this message says, “13AppleAHCIPPort is not compatible with its superclass, 10IOAHCIPort superclass change?” Below the highlighted message: “Couldn’t alloc class “AppleAHCI”
Thanks to anyone who can help me with this. It is greatly appreciated.

After you use boot132 to install retail leopard onto the hard disk.
At the reboot, you still need to use your boot132 to bootup. Hit esc, like the first time when you install, but this time select you first hard disk. That will tell the system to bootup from HDD.
Once you are booted up. Install chameleon bootloader. You need a bootloader to boot and skip the use of the boot132 cd.
I hope you understand.

Thanks for the response.
What you are suggesting was done. I booted with using a bootloader 132 generic.iso image>swapped the bootloader cd for the retail osx leopard>installed leopard successfullly>swapped back to bootloader 132>reset computer>OSxLeopard launched>checked my ethernet connection by launching Safari (it worked)>downloaded OSx86Tools>installed EFI chameleon and selection of kexts>was prompted to restart
At this point the computer did not restart. I had to manually boot it by pressing the internal power button (my external power button doesn't work) and it brought me into Bios. In Bios, I pointed the system to boot from the 1st HDD. When I boot from the HDD, I get the Apple icon, with the spinning wheel for a few minutes and then the "circle w/slash through it" symbol appears over the apple. I take this to be a crash.
Anyone who has had a similar experience that can offer advice will be greatly appreciated.
