which version of ideneb are you using? when i installed ideneb, there was no battery icon for my laptop and it used to over heat. There were some booting issues as well.

This appears to have turned into a help thread (not that I mind)

I used 1.4v of iDeneb, but I wont provide a link for obvious reasons.

When doing your install make sure after you select the hard drive/partition to install to, you click 'Customize' and select the patches you think would work, it takes a while to get it all right trust me.

Nope, v1.6 10.5.8 Lite Edition is, just use 1.4 though as it offers all the patches that it should. The lite edition is crap.

I have a slow internet connection. It may take around 24 hrs to download the file. What say should i install it? i like Mac os. Can you also tell me how did you manage to dual boot it with Windows7 ? Did you have to do any thing out of the world?

When you say pictures do you mean of the laptop running it or just a screenshot from within showing the 'about mac' and other things?

If you have windows 7 installed already, shrink it down about 30gb (at least) and then make that empty 30gb space into a Fat32 or exFAT partition.

During the install of iDeneb you'll need to go to the top bar (while running from disc) and click utilities or something, that will get you to 'disc utility'.

When in that, click on that 30gb partition and 'erase disk' to a HFS+ (Journaled)
