Install mac OS 10.5 on a macbook fails. No software found to install?
I'm scratching my head. I am trying to perform a new install of MAC OS 10.5 on a macbook so I can start again from scratch. MAc OS is already on it, but I want a new clean install.
When I run the macbook with the DVD inserted I get to the install screen, but when I choose install Mac os x I get a fail screen telling me...
Mac OS X could not be installed on your computer.
The Installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install
I only have the option to reboot from there.
Is this common, am I missing a fundamental step?

Is the OS X disc the one provided with that Macbook? Different hardware revisions need different point updates (we had to change an install image from 10.5.4 to 10.5.8 last summer).

I'm afraid they are the exact discs!
