Now I need to get 432 up ... it keeps hanging on the last step before the desktop.
That's what I was not hoping for. So, we will need to install a temp copy of SL, then install another copy (to the HD we really want to install to) and then be able to run SL. My last attempt at SL was so unstable, it would KP randomly within the first 30 seconds at getting to the desktop. Sometimes it would be the finder, other times a different thread would KP. No pattern to it. (and this was in 32bit kernel mode, 64bit kernel mode would KP at the beginning of the boot sequence, with or without dsdt)

Everyone with similar boards, how are you installing? What bootmgr are you using? EFI install? MBR? There has to be a reason my installs are as unstable as sh**.
