    Hey all, I got Leopard on a DVD from a friend and I attempted to install however, when I click the "restart" button from the Leopard Installer my computer restarts and nothing happens.

    should I copy the dmg file to my desktop?

    or can I install it using the DVD?


    -thanks

    Is this a legitimate copy of Leopard? They don't usually come with a dmg file that you can copy. ;)

    but something bout paying $2000+ on my MacBook Pro and $500+ on my iphone makes me feel like Apple won't mind too much...

    Ok, did you take the full around 2-3 hours to install it? If not, then there could be a problem with the disc, ask your friend. But anyway i recommend you buy the disk, because you can always take it back if the CD has a glitch, and if this leopard disc ruins your computer, and you take it to Apple, they'll ask, why did you take a friend's disc( because it's illegeal) Just buy one. Its the best way to go.

    ok, after this point i recommend you just buy one yourself, because it can harm your computer and i wouldn't risk that chance. Hopes this helps. Thanks.

    For how cheap it costs it's worth buying the upgrade.

    Go take a copy of Leopard off of the shelf at the Apple store and try to walk out without paying. See how much they mind.

    That's basically what you're doing now, only off the internet and not a shelf.
