    If it's anything like Jaguar, Panther and Tiger, the Leopard up-to-date disc will require a valid installation of the previous system, (in this case, Tiger) before it'll run. So yes, there is a difference...

    I used Disk Utility to merge my two partitions back into one so that I could use Boot Camp without any hacks. I was able to successfully install 10.5 using my UTD disc so I guess the poster above is incorrect.

    The UTD disc checks for an installation of 10.4 before continuing. After that, its the same thing.

    That's weird because I lost all data when repartitioning my drive and it installed without any issues. Maybe it looks at the MBR or something?

    It did the check before you did that.
