All about MAC OS X on this MB (P5Q PRO, MAC, Leopard, 10.5.5)
Here there will be a description of installation Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 9E25 Retail.
Do not instal broken assemblages on this MB, only the original Retail last version.
Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 9E25 Retail - 7.01 Gb
The original distribution of APPLE is without any problems + immediately after installation UpDate 10.5.5 316 Мб. ((Attention (Warning: Download and install the update, but did not use the "Software Update").
As a result, we get the original Apple MAC OS X version 10.5.5, updated without any problems directly from apple.com for an indefinite time.
Original works faster and more stable than any of the hackintosh assemblies that I have ever encountered.
Installation from an image of the distribution kit is recommended. Restored in separate hard disk partition.
The hard drive is recommended to split Disk Utility in the scheme of partition GUID (3-4 main section), Attention: If you plan on the same hard disk to install Win2003, XP or Vista format HDD only MSDOS - MBR (Master Boot Records).
We pose the original Vanilla kernel, are all core processor, running everything else.
Installing hackintosh assemblies strongly not recommended. But if you experimenter or amateur extreme of a hackintosh assembly is easily and quickly, directly from the DVD-ROMa Russian IDeneb 10.5.5 With kernel 9.5.0 (IMHO: version 10.5.5 lower than at segodnyashy day is not relevant - on the approach to performance 10.5.5 Kalyway and Leo4All).
Do not put broken assemblages - Only: Mac_OS_X_Leopard_10.5.4_9E25_Retail.dmg. (Point)
