GEEKZ ON A TECH SITE!!!11!! LOLZ
Well, it is called EduGeek
Your Welcome, lol...
I've sorted it now anyways, Big thank-you to those who helped.
What was the resolution? Could be useful for others that may run into the same problem.
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...
...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.
I will take that as a compliment, thank-you very muchOriginally Posted by gwendes
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.
At the end of the day the grass is always greener...
The grass may be greener, but the Miracle Gro and Evergreen has made the apples rotten
Very good point HodgeHi
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.
LOL! Didn't know you could get an exchange from torrent sites!Originally Posted by HodgeHi
