    Im trying to install leopard on an older macbook (white version) which has 10.4.something. I plop the dvd in, it recognized the dvd I double click and hit install, it asks for password and restarts. When it restarts it hangs at the screen where the apple logo is and the circle below it just rotates. It doesn't start to install.

    Any ideas!
    Thanks

    Duff-Man says....how long are you waiting, and during this "hang" do you hear it accessing the DVD? It can take a little while to boot from the DVD and get to the installer screens....oh yeah!

    Duff-Man says...that's a little long but not totally unheard of either. Are you installing from a retail 10.5 disc or one that came with another computer or an upgrade disc....oh yeah!
