    When I try to boot my Leopard-10.5.2-AMD-EFI CD, It says "Sys config /library/preferences/systemconfiguration/com.apple.plist not found." I have an HP dv6000 laptop. I dont exactly know the specs but it has an AMD Turion64x2 processor and it has a NVIDIA graphics card. Can anyone help? It has vista installed on it.

    yup thats the dreaded error i always got
    if we have the same bios then when u restart and see the hp screen hit esc
    then choose your hard drive and it SHOULD boot past that into the apple logo
    mine never got past the apple logo though

    Yes but mine never even boots into the installation DVD, Doesnt show apple logo or anything, just goes to the darwin loader.

    oh this is before the install?
    ok then you do the same instructions i posted but choose the dvd device and it should skip through that error
    and if that doesnt work then u burned ur dvd too fast

    Did you use Zephyroth or the other one that was going at 30kb/s? Which one did you actually use?

    Hey, when I turn my computer on to boot into vista it says "Operating System Not Found". I've tried repairing with the installation CD, Can you at least help me boot back into vista?

    very simple actually
    u must have followed the dual boot guide that sets the mac partition active before the install
    ok boot into the vista disc
    choose repair then open command prompt window
    then type diskpart
    list disk
    select disk 0
    list partitions
    then from here you type in select partition (whatever one your windows is on)
    then type set active
    then when u reboot it should go into vista
