What you need to install OSX 10.5.2:

  • external DVD drive
  • DVD containing Kalyway 10.5.2 install (look for that on the usual sites ;)
  • My Wind driver and utility pack
  • a proper licend copy of Leopard

At first ensure you’ve installed BIOS version of at least 1.05
You can find updates for your MSI machine here

Step by Step tutorial guid

  1. Insert the Kalyway 10.5.2 disk into your external DVD drive, and plug it into your Wind
  2. Start your Wind, and press F11 when prompted to choose a boot device. When the blue list pops up, select your DVD drive
  3. When prompted to hit a key to boot from CD/DVD, hit a key…. you’ll see a ton of text scroll up the screen – just sit tight
  4. You’ll next be presented with your language select screen. I imagine you want English, so just hit enter! It’ll then sit doing ‚Preparing Installation‘ for a while.
  5. When you get the ‚Welcome‘ screen, don’t hit continue straight away! Move your point to the ‚Utilities‘ menu, and select ‚Disk Utility‘.
  6. When the Disk Utility application has loaded, click your main drive in the left hand pane
  7. Click ‚Partition‘ on the right hand pane.
  8. Under ‚Volume Scheme‘, click ‚1 partition‘.
  9. Give your disk a nice name. I chose ‚Leopard‘. Original, I know!
  10. Click ‚Apply‘
  11. Wait for it to do it’s thing, then select ‚Quit Disk Utility‘ from the ‚Disk Utility‘ menu.
  12. You’ll now be taken back to the installer welcome page. Click ‚Continue‘.
  13. Click ‚Agree‘ when the legalese blurb pops up.
  14. Choose a destination drive – obviously the one you just partitioned! Click ‚Continue‘.
  15. Click ‚Customize‘.
  16. Completely uncheck ‚Language Translations‘.
  17. Expand ‚Kernels‘ and select ONLY ‚kernel_vanilla_92‘
  18. Expand ‚Graphics_Drivers‘, expand ‚Intel_GMA‘ and select ONLY ‚GMA950‘
  19. Completely uncheck ‚Audio_Drivers‚.
  20. Expand ‚Networks_Drivers‘. and select ONLY ‚RTL1000‘.
  21. Completely uncheck ‚Mobo_Chipsets‘.
  22. Completely uncheck ‚Thirds_Applications‘.
  23. Expand ‚Patches‘ and select ‚TimeMachineFix‘ and ‚PowerManagement_bundle‘.
  24. Click ‚Done‘
  25. Click ‚Install‘ and go and make yourself a cup of coffee!
  26. The install will now take place, if you want to speed it up, you can ‚Skip‘ the installation DVD check.
  27. Remember: the Time Remaining calculation, it’s not really that accurate. In particular, the ‚Time Remaining: About a minute‘ is pretty optimistic
  28. When the ‚Install Succeeded‘ screen appears, eject the install DVD and hit ‚Restart‘.
  29. OS will now start up for the first time, and take you through the setup wizard.
