    Default successful OS x 10.5.6 install on HP dm3-1040ez

    Tried the Kalyway 10.5.2, loaded OK from the external DVD drive, got to the install phase (make sure you don't have more than 4 partitions on your primary hard drive), but install failed at 99% on the OxfordDictionary error. Then didn't know but Kalyway replaces the Master boot so I lost the Win7 and XP dual boot and was left with a "missing operating system".
    To remediate this, I used the GParted live CD to set the master boot back to the Win7 partition, rebooted then launched the Win7 recovery DVD, went to command prompt and repaired with bootrec.exe /fixmbr and bootrec.exe /fixboot (honestly don't know which one fixed the problem). Then used DISKPART to set the Win7 partition as active and was able to boot to Win7 again! (big relief!!!)
    Going to try IATKOS S3 v2, anyone has any recommendations so that I don't loose the MBR again? Thanks in advance!
    hi guys,

    Just coming back to let you know that I download iPC Mac OS x 10.5.6 PPF5 distribution this week-end and was able to install it without any problems!
    For reference my laptop's configuration is:

    CPU Intel Core 2 Duo 2x2.66Mhz
    RAM 2Gb
    HDD 160GB, 3 partitions in the primary partition
    WiFi: Atheros 9285 802.11 a/b/g
    Samsung external DVD drive (USB)
    Windows 7 ultimate

    So here's how it went: After reading all the guides out there (Thanks hackint0sh.org!), I downloaded and burned an iBoot CD. After trying a few times to install the iPC release DVD from iBoot, I simply let the iPC DVD boot, pressed F8 to add parameters, and simply typed in "cpus=1" (without the quotes). The DVD booted just fine and got me to the install screen At the install screen, I went to "Disk utility", chose the 3rd parition that I had created under windows 7 in disk manager and that I labeled "OS X". Then I clicked on "Erase" and chose "Mac OS X - Journaled", that left me with a 16gb Mac OS formatted partition, leaving my windows 7 partitions untouched. I then went on, accpeted the disclaimer, chose my partition (only "OS X") appeared on the selection screen, the went to the install screen and clicked on "customize". Here's where it gets tricky as you should know which kernel/drivers/patches suit your configuration. As ohter guides mentioned, I used Z-CPU in Windows 7 and took note of the config. Then I installed several times using different parameters until I got it right (only took me 3 fresh re-installs). For info, if you want to reinstall, always erase the partition, do not try to reinstall over an existing one otherwise you will get an "install failed" message.
    So here's the config for the DM3:
    - Kernels: 9.5.0 Voodoo Kernel (http://www.newtale.com/pp/local/cach...iPC4-61fca.jpg)
    - Video: Nvidia>Macbook latest Nvidia drivers
    - Chipset: Intel ICHx
    - Audio: AC97
    - Network: intel pro 100 m
    - USB: Patched USB drivers
    - Patches & Fixes: Seatbelt.kext, PS/2 keyboard (only this one to get both mouse and keyboard working), NTFS-3G (allows you to access the windows partitions), CPUS=1 fix.
    - applications: OSX86 utility

    The install took 7 minutes after skipping the DVD check. Then at the next reboot, unplugged the USB DVD drive, pressed any key, left the default choice for Mac OS in the boot menu and typed -f -x -v (forced rebuild of kexts, safe mode and verbose mode). After finishing the installation and registration, I rebooted. you might want to try CPUS=1 when booting if you haven't installed the cpu fix, it will boot like a charm.
    I now have windows 7 and snow leopard running ))

    The only thing left now is finding the right driver for the wifi, I tried the modified IO80211family.kext fom this site:IO80211Family.kext - Downloads - Kexts.com
    but still not luck. any recommendation?
    Also, when installing kexts through osx86 utility, I'm not sure if the kext are applied correctly as nothing seems to have changed.

    Thanks for all the help from the other members to get to where I'm now, I'm very pleased!
