I'm trying to wind down a little bit from the UK Basketball game, so thought that I'd try installing Leopard on my new DA G4. Although I give a huge amount of credit to the developer for writing this, and I've used it successfully a number of times, I find other times where it just won't work. Tonight was one of those occasions. I ran Leopard Assist, then rebooted with my burned backup. The installer kernel panicked a few seconds into loading. I tried a couple more times, and then pulled out my original(which I try to avoid using as much as possible, since these are expensive to replace). It still wouldn't boot off the DVD. I checked the firmware, and it is the most current version(4.2.8). I'm doing a TDM install now from my A1139-a pretty safe method that I've also used plenty of times. Even so, it's a program that seems to cause trouble for me about half the times I use it. I think I've even used it on a different Digital Audio, but it's just not working here. Hopefully, the TDM install will work. Fortunately, the computer was used as a server, and as such has two identical 80gb drives with the second being a clone of the main drive. So, if for some reason the install fails, I can just clone the backup drive back over and go from there. Has anyone else had trouble of this sort with Leopard Assist? I know the computer will run it well once it's installed, but getting it on can sometimes be a pain. Having to do the TDM install also ties up two computers for 1 hour+ and not just one, although admittedly I don't exactly have a shortage of useable computers around.
