  • Installing Leopard on your PC: anyone try this?

    Update : If you are looking for a guide to Dual Boot Windows Vista and Mac OSX Leopard, please follow this guide Hack Attack : Dual Boot Leopard and Windows Vista. The Dual Boot Guide is a comprehensive guide and it should work for most of you with a little bit of hard work.

    Here is a complete guide to install Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.1 (9B18) on your PC, in just one step that is as easy as it could possibly get. Just pop in the DVD and you are good to go, running Leopard in no time, with all the 300+ features at your fingertips.

    index_hero20071016Its been nearly two months, since I last wrote my guide to Install Leopard on your PC in just 3 Steps. Well I wanted to write a better How-To that would answer many questions that people had from my previous How-To.

    I am writing this guide for a novice user, who doesn’t know much about the various commands that went into my previous article. This is a one step process that almost anybody in this world would be able to follow.

    Here are the basic requirements for you to proceed with the installation of Leopard :

    * A Blank DVD-R to burn the ISO.
    * The ISO image to be downloaded from Mininova.

    Before I tell you, how to install OSX I would like to tell you why this release by Uphuck and Eskurza is an important milestone in the OSX86 Project.

    * This is the first ever Leopard DVD to come out with the amazing PC-EFI built in. If you are wondering what PC-EFI is all about, then let me tell you something about it :

    With the EFI patch, the hackintosh can boot off VANILLA UNMODIFIED OS X kernel and use vanilla kexts, which gives a more clean room and great peace of mind for future system updates.

    To Know more about PC-EFI visit the OSX86 Wiki

    * iATKOS (as this release is called) supports a variety of Hardware configurations, and many popular Graphic Cards, Network Cards are supported.

    Now lets proceed with the installation of Leopard. Before that here are few conditions your CPU must satisfy to use this installation method..

    * Non Core Intel Processors, no PC-EFI for you.
    * Core Based Processors, for PC-EFI to work.
    * AMD processors are not supported at this time.

    Ok now, lets proceed with the installation :
    Step 1: Installing Leopard

    * Download the Installation ISO from Mininova. You can find it by performing a search for iATKOS v1.0i (Its about 2.09 GB).
    * Once you are done, with downloading burn the ISO at very slow speeds to the DVD.
    * Pop in the DVD and boot into it from BIOS and follow the Onscreen Instructions.
    * Select the Appropriate Packages, based on your hardware and then proceed.
    * Installation might take about an hour or so, so grab yourself a cup of coffee while you install Leopard.

        Why would you want to put an inferior OS on a computer?

          Leopard is a nice OS/X upgrade from Tiger. I love the new feature called 'spaces'.
