    Exclamation Retail on Asus P5Q

    hi guys, just want to ask a simple question before i proceed with my hackintosh.

    I am currently using the Asus P5Q motherboard and i have a genuine copy of the leopard DVD from Apple. I cannot seem to find the Boot-132 image for my motherboard from anywhere.

    I found a thread -_- P5Q PRO & MAC OS X Leopard 10.5.7 (9J47) Retail -_- - InsanelyMac Forum but there are no Boot132 in there. Is the boot132 referring to step number 4 in the thread ("creating a bootable flash drive")?

    Check munkys guide, you can always make your own 132 bootloader or download from similar mobo, just need to make it boot, so try with one of those and report back your progress ;D

    Thank you very much icchansan. I tried reading but still a little confused (will try again in a while). I am currently using ideneb now and when i installed ideneb months ago, i created a bootable flash drive that allowed me to install ideneb. Is it the same one?? Can i use the flash drive instead?? Thanks a million

    Yeah you can try with your 132 bootloader for the same purpose, so try and report back your progress, I know the info is kinda confusing but definitely worth it

    This one works for most P5Q Motherboards.

    asus_p5w-dh_boot-132.iso.zip

    It worked for my P5Q-PRO motherboard.

    Here is a quick rundown of what i've been able to piece together from most of the P5Q threads, Both you and I have similar install needs;

    1. Flash Bios
    2. Format partition driving using GUID/GPT
    3. Boot with Boot132 (above) once loaded, remove disc and replace with Retail disc - Once inside the Apple OS GUI, before installing, go to Utilities > Disk Management and reformat/partition the drive to your liking.
    4. Install Leopard.

    This is where I am stuck... getting hardware to recognize. But hopefully I helped you enough to get you on the right track.

    Guys thanks for the help but it is still not working. After swapping the boot132 CD and insterting the leopard disc, it gets to the gray loading screen. After 1 min or so, a notification will pop up, telling me to restart. Can you guys help me? i've formatted my hard drive with my Macbook Pro to GUID.

    Edit: Just tried it with these two as well http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/ind...owtopic=113288 and it didnt work. Got stuck at the leopard wallpaper screen and before the language selection.

    Hmm...

    You sure you downloaded the correct Bios and flashed it like the tutorial states (making sure you enable and disable the right stuff)

    Using GParted, I've found that you do not need to creat any partitions if you are only planning on install Leopard and not dual booting; So for instance download GPARTED, load it, in the Partition editior delete all partitions from your drive click apply. Then at the top forgot which Tab it is but theres an option to Great Patrition table. Select that and click advance. In the drop down menu select GPT and Apply. Once that's done, load your BOOT132 disc, and restart. once Boot132 loads insert your Leopard disc and try again...

    Only other thing I can think of is your OS disc is bad? if you downloaded a copy you might want to find another... If it's retail then most likely somewhere you've messed up - most likely in the bios.

    One thing, I noticed you had mentioned is you created a Bootable flash drive... I was never able to get USB to boot - so I created a CD BOOT132... try that ?

    Hi Jaysen thanks again. The modded bios i've downloaded was the 1611 not the 2002. Yeah i believe i've did the settings correctly, i used to have ideneb but it crashed too often and now i have a copy of the genuine leopard dvd.

    I prefer to use a bootable CD too but i cannot seem to find any .iso for my motherboard only the flash drive instructions in that insanely mac thread. Do you know how to convert the bootable USB to an .iso image??
