    Hey guys! Im new to the mac world, so this may sound stupid. I am trying to install tiger from a dmg file. everytime i try to start the installation it says click to restart. after i restart nothing happens and the mounted install image is gone, and i have to re-mount it. and then the same thing just keeps happening, restarting and nothing. any suggestions?:confused:

    Just pop the install disc it and click the "Install Mac OS X" icon. It'll walk you through everything.

    i have the original dvd, but my dog chewed it up and the drive is not reading it. I have reverted to panther, but I would really like to use tiger since i bought it and all. and to make matters worse my burner is not working at all, so i cant burn it either :(.

    You'll need to get a new disc...contact Apple and see if they can do anything for you. Otherwise you'll have to purchase it...decent deals can often be found on eBay.
