Welcome to the MDD club I use mine daily for iTunes and ten four fox. Max the ram and get a video card that supports core image and it will eat leopard for breakfast.
I do believe that other member was me.It had no hard drive or ram when I got it. I also swapped the SP1.25 with a DP1.25 I received from another member here. It keeps kernel panicking, so I will reinstall OSX.
nice old machine so you plan to give up your MBA?
I do believe you are correct. I was excited to finally put it to use!I do believe that other member was me.
I'm glad to hear that just maybe the dual processors will be put back in use.
I'm beginning to think the optical drive is no good. Both my leopard disks pass verification, but install fails at installing base system. I need to look for a DVD player.Post some benchmarks in maya and geekbench and fps in games like quake 4 and doom 3 I would love to see how your mdd stacks up against my old one
Do you have a firewire drive?It's my hope i can get it up and running to replace my 1.0ghz eMac.

I've hooked up my iBook as a target disk mdd and am copying the OS to the dive on th mdd.Do you have a firewire drive?
If so I would just create a disk image of your Leopard Installer and install it from the firewire drive.
or partition a Mac with firewire and restore the DVD to that partition and install from there in target disk mode.
It ended up being bad ram. Now I just need to get some Ram for itHere's a stupid guess, and I may be totally wrong and ridiculous, but...
Have you replaced the PRAM battery? Perhaps it has an erroneous date code, causing the validation not to work. I'm not sure where the time comes from when booted from the OS X install DVD. I know to install iLife recently, I had to set the date to pre-2012.
Congrats on the MDD! I have two lying around with bad PSUs. I really need to fix that sometime.
The 9600 should yield better results then the stock 9000 I have installed in mine. Still on the hunt for a better graphics card. My 9000 is pretty taxed pushing my 40" LCD.I rummaged around and found a pair of one-sided 512mb pc-2700, but osx sees it as pc-2600. I'm goin to look through my spare vid cards to see what I have, but I suspect the 9600 it came with is gonna be the best.
You can try resetting the PRAM. Close to the lower front of the logic board inside the machine is a little button. It should be labelled "PRAM". Only give it a quick press, don't hold it for more than 2 seconds!I keep getting the following error. Ive tried multiple hard drives, multiple optical drives, two different leopard discs and a tiger disc.
You have a MBA and a MBP? And, yeah, I also use my MBP everyday for everything!Silly person! I use my MBA and MBP every day.
I do believe you are correct. I was excited to finally put it to use!
