    I have burned ML to a single layer DVD, does this mean that if I install ML I will be missing features since ML original file size was 4.7 and now I shrunk it too 4.3 so I can get it on the single layer DVD

    ----------

    Ps I am using the disk to do a clean install

    Did you shrink it by deleting files? If not, no worries.

    I'd heard it didn't fit on a DVD SL. I can't imagine the install would start without all the files.

    But you're right, it is 4.34 GB. I guess different file systems store things differently, so maybe that's why you need DL or an 8 GB stick.

    No there is an article on the Internet showing how to do it that's how I got it to fit on a DVD
    Here is the site

    I am just wondering if this makes it so I will be missing some things out of ml
