    Re: Leopard .dmg INSTALL HELP

    I did I you suggested using Burning the image in "Disk Utility" on Mac OSX, -

    I copied the origional .dmg to the desktop, then went to Disk Utility and Burnt the images to a DVD+R DL

    this works fine...

    Re: Leopard .dmg INSTALL HELP

    ...still don't think thegrassisgreener should be asking for information about burning illegally obtained software on this forum.

    It's not even a grey area - I genuinely can't think of a way that anyone would obtain a dmg of an operating system and not be breaking the law - and know that they are breaking the law.

    (Then he's rude and hits the CAPS key...)

    @ thegrassisgreener - your attitude stinks.

    Re: Leopard .dmg INSTALL HELP

    To be fair, you can backup your install discs into a DMG and then if he had an issue with his disk, ie a slight scratch then he would need to burn his DMG to continue with his installation. I have found that superdrives can be very picky about the media in its hole.

    I have had discs spat back out at me because they have a minute scratch that would play fine in a windows machine.

    Re: Leopard .dmg INSTALL HELP

    On etip though OS X should always verify the disc before an installation. Maybe you could check the disc in another machine to see if there is a problem with the disc.

    If so then you may be entitiled to an exchange.
