    I'd give iDeneb 1.5 a try, or leo4alll. You have an AMD machine, so you must use the Voodoo kernal.

    I'd try an intial install selecting the voodoo kernal, seatbelt fix, and specifying your sound, video, and chipset. choose kext helper, osx86 tools, and pacificst from the apps option.

    See how far you get.

    Before you destroy your windows installation make sure you have a way of reinstalling windows and know exactly what your hardware is (system > hardware > device manager).

    Try using lawless or iPC, you will need a patched kernel like voodoo or speedstep, you have to read about system like yours, google for nforce mobos or AMD system running leopard, check the HCL to know if anyone got success with this baby or similar systems dont have be the same brand.

    If you doesnt boot into leopard try with cpus=1 and dont forget to report back your progress

    I installed with Lawless PPC and it worked perfectly, besides afterwards. When i went to About this Mac and Clicked more info, It says that the number of cores is 1. But i have a quad core processor. My processor is an AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core Processor 2.20 GHZ. Its just that Mac OSX is not taking advantage of the cores.

    Anyone know a solution? Thanks,
