    I have created el cap and sierra usb installer by using a terminal command.

    Can I do same with 10.5?

    I have a 10.5 DMG file which was on our server at work.
    So I made a copy.

    either DVD or USB would work for me.

    Thanks everyone

    Use either dd or disk restore, the latter is also available with a GUI

    disk restore via disc utility?

    point at a usb stick then, select the DMG to restore from?

    Sorry if sounds dumb questions I'm a relative newbie and a user rather than power user.

    If you are going to burn media…

    Open Disk Utilitiy and Burn a New Image. Select the DMG as your image and then let DU do the work.

    Assuming it's an actual installer DMG then you will have a bootable DVD to install Leopard from.

    You will need a computer that has a DL burner and you will need a DL DVD.
