Install Leopard On your PC in Just One Step

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.

Step 2: That is all my, my Friend

  • Didn’t I say it was a one step installation process. Yes it really was.. Congratulations you’ve done it.

That’s it for now. I will be updating this post in the future, when the AMD patch is released. If you have any questions, please drop in a comment, or ask your questions in the Uphuck Forums.

A big thanks to Uphuck and Eskurza for this amazing release. A lot of credit for all this hardwork goes to them. And ofcourse to Netkas for the development of PC-EFI. Cheers!

  1. There are no seeders for this torrent!

  2. hi!

    Thanks for a great guide, i’m burning the iso as i write.
    I’m just curious – will i be able to easily switch between XP and OSX? I don’t want to be stuck with nothing but a half-assed macintosh.
    The main reason I’m doing this, besides the fact that it’s like the coolest thing since liquid nitrogen, is that I want to use Garage Band on my PC. Will it work nicely, you reckon?
    Thanks a million

  3. Dose the OS X Leopard require a serial key? Please replay on my mail adress!


  4. Is this legal?

  5. Dobro…mog’o si to malo…

  6. doesn’t work on my Intel Pentium 4 Computer

  7. what is the point of doing this? XP is better

  8. I cannot find GarageBand. Is it included in iatkos v1.0i or is it published in a separate torrent?

  9. XP is just a cheap copy of OS 9, OS X leopard doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence.

  10. If you still need XP to run on your pc don’t bother installing Mac OS X on your pc. Get a new PC and it’s going to be easier for you. Even better, get a Mac.
    GarageBand is part of iLife bundle of applications and not Mac OS X. Do your research first!

  17. hi
    i just wanted to know that on which drive should i install leopard and will it harm my other drives of ma hard disk
    plz reply soon

  18. So I downloaded the ISO file but my computer wont burn it and Ive tried 4 different iso burners. They always end up saying “not recognized format” or something that means that. After I install this all I want to know is if it will have sound and garage band because thats pretty much the only reason Im doing this.
    One more thing,
    I have the actual leopard CD you would get if you were to buy a mac (barrowed it from a friend) and the OS X version 10.4.10 install disk 1. I was wondering if there was a way to use those to install leopard on my pc.

  19. @ john doe: read the comments, do your research. GARAGEBAND IS NOT INCLUDED WITH LEOPARD.
    and yes, you can, but you need the mac disk, and the another mac to copy the iso. i use nero for isos, works fine.

    and someone else asked if you wud have xp on it after as well, u need to partition the HD first.
