What you are going to need:
Leo4allv3 ( Mac OS X 10.5.2)
GPU-z (recommended by xerofdv)
A Dual Layer Disc ( Dual layer is not not necessary, but it may give problems on a single layer disc) The Disc must not be rewritable.
A Drive to burn the ISO to the Disc
A USB Mouse
A Usb Keyboard
A Partition formatted as Fat32 or NTFS if you want more than 32 Gigs .
An AMD or Intel Processor
A compatible chipset (dont worry about this because most chipset drivers are included in the install)
An X86 based system
1 Gig of Ram at minimum
64 MB of VRAM (Since apple Uses so many effects, including the Genie effect, i recommend you have 128 MBs Of VRAM
Subrequirements (Use the tools above to meet the subrequirements)
Your computer Must have SSE2 (if you have SSE3, like me, thats even better). To find out if your computer Has SSE2 or SSE3, Open CPU-Z, and you will see a screen similar to this one
Look in the instructions box
And look in it SSE2. If you also see SSE3, that even better.
WARNING: there is an intruction SSSE2, dont let it confuse you with SSE2.
If you have at least, you can continue. if not, you must stop here. Mac OS X cannot be installed on systems without SSE2 or SSE3.
Use GPU-Z to find out if you have at least 64 MB of Video Memory (having 128 is even better, ill show you how to increase it deeper in the tutorial.
Use ImgBurn to burn the Leo4all ISO to a Dual Layer DVD. having a Dual Layer DVD is not Necessary, but recommended to avoid problems. the DVD must NOT be a DVD RW. Rewritable cannot be booted from properly.
Make a new partition for Mac OS X Using windows Apps such as Disc Management, or Partition Magic or bootable tools such as GParted CD Live or any other tool.
NeverMind that, if you format a partition as NTFS, Disk Utility has permission to erase it and reformat it.
Now, Since This is an HP System, we need to Modify the BIOS Settings in order to make the DVD work properly.( The ways of entering the BIOS settings may be different for you. For me, i get it with f10) First, for the Better quality, You are going to want to set the VRAM to 128MB. Next you want to change the boot Order. Set you Hard drive at the top of the list. Next and last, We need to set a boot password. Set it as ASDFGHJK.
Now Save changes and exit. Your Laptop Will now reboot. Then it will make a frightening "Beep" Sound, and asks for a password. Do not enter the Password just yet. Open your disc drive and Insert the Leo4all Disc. Shut down you computer and reboot. Make Sure nothing, not even the mouse or keyboard, is connected. only have your charger connected.
Now, here is the tricky part. You are going to have to launch Leo4all as fast as you can.
As soon as the HP logo is on the screen, hit ESC, swipe your finger across the middle row of the keyboard, down, enter as Fast As possible.
Escape loads the boot device screen. but before you are taken there, you must enter your password. Swipe your finger across the Keyboard to type ASDFGHJK. You Dont have to go too fast, but do it quickly. now hit down and enter after the password entry. Hitting down and enter will highlight and select the CD/DVD Drive as the boot drive (Note: if you have 3 or more boot devices, which you shouldnt, you may have to go down more. Make sure you select your DVD/CD drive.). Set up your fingers to press the following
F8 loads the boot options instead of waiting 8 seconds. -v is the command for a Verbose boot. Enter.. is self explanatory.
Now We wait... Give it 15-20 minutes. You should hear your cd drive going crazy. if it gets idle for a moment, its Okay. If it is idle for more then 10 minutes, the bootup failed. this may have happened because you started it up too slow.
If your bootup didnt fail, then we can continue. Check if your trackpad is working. if it is, congrats, you did everything as the right speed. if your trckpad is not working, there will be problems after the install if you continue with a USB mouse. Try again faster if you trackpad doesnt work.
(Assuming you Trackpad and Keyboard works...)
Now that The TrackPad and Built in Keyboard work, we can finally install, OS X. Select your language. The Installer Will be prepared. do not continue until you see the Finder Bar at the Top. Once the Finder Bar appears, Click Utilities, and Open Disk Utility.
When Disk Utility is loaded, Click on the partition you made for Mac earlier. Click the erase tab. by default, the Filesystem is set to Fat32. change it to Mac OS X Extended. Make sure the Volume Name is MacHD or something without spaces. (although in terminal and other applications a space is substituted with a "\", other Applications may not work, even with the sub)
After formatting, quit Disk Utility and go back to the installer. Click Continue. Agree to the Apple EULA. Select the Partition you just formatted. Continue. Now you are at the last screen before the install. Hit Customize.
Deselect The Language translations, as they take over 1 GB of the install space.
If you have an AMD System similar to the one listed in the photo at the top, select AMD-System-Fix.
If you have and SSE3 Instruction, select the Vanilla Kernel.
If you would like, try installing the sound Kexts. if You have a Conexant HD Audio chipset, DO NOT INSTALL THIS.
DO NOT install the Graphics Kext. i Will upload the Kexts to Manually install afterwards.
Install the chipset kexts. this prevents the waiting for root device error.
DO NOT install the Wifi Kext. This Kext is listed, but is not actually on the install disc. if you select it, the Install will Fail and you will have to start all over again.
Now we have selected all our components for the install. Now Click install. give it 40 minutes to and hour. (trust me, time will fly by). Now Reboot. You will see the Darwin x86 bootloader. Highlight MACHD and boot in Verbose with the flag -v [type -v]. OS X will boot. There are some boot problems, but ill explain those later. booting will take 10 minutes.
After it boots, set up OS X according to you preferences. The Set up will prompt you to insert a USB keyboard. The keyboard will fail to install. OS X will as You to press the key to the right of the left shift key, the key to the left of the right shift key. then select your keyboard type. hen you will have to set up AirPort. Wifi will not work, however. down in the bottom left, is a button that says "I connect to the internet a different way..." Or something like that. click that, then select I do not connect to the internet.
Now continue through the installation and, you're done!! Sort of!!
(There Will be two more posts, one with troubleshooting and the other with perfecting OS X.
