Well, it is called EduGeek :roll:
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 muchQuote:

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!Quote:
