THNX to David Eliott master behind the Boot 132 hack which allows us to Install OSX on P.C. with the Unmodified retail version of mac OSX Leopard. The main benifit of Retail install over modified distro install is with retail install you can update your system directly from apple software updater just like an original Mac Machine.So forget about iAtkos, kalyway, Leo4all etc. & move with retail Install.

Before we starts let’s see how it works >>> you burn an Boot-132 Generic ISO (which has the bootloader on it) to a CD/DVD, after it gets to the boot prompt, you press ESC or ENTER and it prompts for a new BOOT DEVICE, you swap the BOOT CD/DVD with the LEO Retail DVD, you press enter and it shows you the name of the bootable partition from the DVD, you press enter and Leo starts to load. Some people pays money to E-FIX for this free & simple trick.The guide is divided into two phase’s first one is for Installing the OSX & second one is to elimnate the need of BootCD evry time while booting.Ready with your poison let’s start.
First of All burn Boot-132 Generic ISO into a C.D. in following tutorial term Boot-132 Generic ISO is replaced with BootCD.

Phase One >>>

1. Insert your BootCD into DVD/ROM and boot/start your PC.

2. On the boot prompt, press Enter. You will be asked to enter a two-digit hexadecimal boot device (do not press any key).

3. Remove the BootCD and replace it with the Mac OS X Retail DVD. Wait for the blinking light on your DVD drive to stop and then hit Enter (this will read your DVD drive and not your HD).

4. Perform the Mac OS X Leopard installation. You may need to use Disk Utility (under the Utilities Menu) to partition and format your HD if you haven’t already. Make sure to select GUID (under Options).

5. Restart after the installation and replace the Retail Mac OS X DVD with the BootCD.

6. On the boot prompt, press Enter. This time, enter the two-digit hexadecimal of the drive where you installed OS X. Enter 80; if it doesn’t show the startup volume of your OS X, hit Esc. Try 81, and so on until you see your OS X volume. Select it and hit Enter.

Now are in Leopard but you still won’t be able to boot your hackintosh without the BootCD. For overcome the BootCD you need to install external bootloader.

Phase two >>>

1. Open Chameleon that you download’s early.

2. Copy the contents of the Extra directory from the Generic.iso CD by drag & drop in to the Extra Contents folder in Chameleon by following this simple procedure .

Open the Generic.iso CD from your desktop. >>> Double-click on the INITRD.IMG file. >>> Double-click on the Extra folder. >>> Drag the Extensions folder to the Extra Contents folder in Chameleon

3. Double-click the Chameleon_DFE_for_Hard_Disk.pkg file and install to your hard disk.

4. Remove the BootCD and reboot.

5. You should now be able to boot into Leopard without the BootCD.
