    I've got Snow Leopard sitting on my hard drive in the form of a DMG file.

    How do I install this new operating system?

    Do I have it converted into an iso file and then burnt onto a DL DVD and then run that or can I simply run it from its mounted position.

    Is there a way I can do it with my time machine?

    Appreciate the help.

    Where did you get this DMG from? Aside from Apple developer releases (which tell you how to install them) all legal version of SL come on DVD.

    Don't worry, this is legal.

    A friend of mine has multiple licenses and uploaded the compressed format for me to download. He has allowed me to use one of his family pack licenses.

    So how do i do this?

    That is not legal: the family pack licenses cannot be split like this. You have an illegal pirated copy of Snow Leopard.

    Your friend is wrong. He should read the license agreement.

    No worries, it's super easy.

    Buy the DVD, shove it in, install.

    And as such I reported this thread to the moderators as soon as the OP confirmed he had a pirated copy of Snow Leopard. I'm sure it will be locked in due course.
