Sounds bad, can you re-format?

this is a format and reinstall of tiger.....I tried to install Leopard but always got the can not verify essentials.............

it is leaning toward hardware.... Do you have an external/internal hd you could try it with to eliminate the costlier elements

well installed tiger again last nite and all seems to be fine as of now. The only thing I can figure is that I did not reformat after getting the essential error on the leopard side. I read alot about a memory issue causing that and took the added memory out to no avail. I also have a different superdrive in there and think that may be the problem but oh well. Just got frustrated about the leopard deal and went back to tiger............thanks for the advice.....MC
