Re: Mac OS X 10.5 Install Problem
If it's at all possible overclock your PC.Have some one whose experienced and confident when they attempt it.If 200mhz is all the boost thats required,than you should be able to reach that requirement.Some PC's overclocking can't be done.On the other hand,you may have one that can.In case you are wondering what that means:Overclocking is pushing the engine(example) of your PC faster than the factory set it.In my eyes ,if the PC has adjustments in the Bios to make it faster ,then , why not give it a boost.It will work if 200mhz is all you need.Again only a PC tech. should do this. Keep me posted!!

Alfonso, You didn't mention which apple computer you are attempting to install 10.6 on. Apple->About This Mac will give you that answer. Post that answer here. Just for your information, I don't believe that 10.6 or later will install on a PowerPC based Apple Systems. If yours sports a PPC - you are out of luck.
If you're not into desktop virtualization (running an OS inside of another OS at the same time), you can do something called dual boot, in which you'll have the option after you turn the computer on to use either Windows XP or Mac. You'll have to reboot everytime you want to switch, though. http://nirlog.com/2006/03/18/winxp-and-osx-dual-boot-in-macbook-pro/
Remember to keep a current backup of your data before attempting a Windows XP installation.
If you received an OS X install disk with your used MacBook you can change the administrator password.
1: Boot with the OS X install DVD by restarting the computer with the C key held down. You may release it when the Apple logo appears.
2: When you get to the install menu, select your language
3: Select Reset Password under the utilities menu on the menu bar.
4: When the password pane come up, click on your Hard Drive Icon,
5: Select the original administrator's user name (capitalization counts)
6: Enter a new password for this administrator account (capitalization counts).
7: Re-enter the new password to confirm.
8: WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE!
9: Provide a password hint.
10: Click save.
11: Make sure you reset the home directory permissions and ACLs by clicking the reset button.
12: Reboot your Mac.
If you don't have an install disk, you will have to buy or borrow one.
Booting from the install disk should give you the option to reinstall it. During that process there are settings to delete the contents of the drive to ensure a clean instal. Remember however that this will wipe any personal files from the Mac as well and so back everything important up to external drives.
