That's interesting, I didn't get 10.5 to boot to desktop either but
didn't think of trying without the NDRV, I maybe incorrectly assumed it
was an unrelated problem due to the lack of a supported PMU or SMU
based platform. I'll have a look later this week see if there's
anything the driver is doing that is upsetting OS 10.5
