    In the process of doing clean install from tiger to leopard and I'm running into some issue.

    1st attempt - was stuck on initial "Install" screen (After I erased my HD and selected drive to install but before the Install screen changes to show the status of the install remaining) for 35 minutes. I stopped the install and restated.

    2nd attempt - Finally got to the progress bar, 28 minutes remaining. However, it didn't move from there. I checked the Installer Log and it kept trying to install printer drivers and foreign fonts, but unsuccessful. Finally got an error message stating install was not complete. Restart.

    3rd. attempt - This time I unchecked printer drivers and fonts. Progress bar stated 18 minutes, now it's down to 17 (after like 10 minutes) and according to the Installer Log I keep getting errors in stuff (Error writing caches to /Volume/...., Input/output error, Failed to enumerate /Volumes/...., Cannot prune("com.apple.user*pictureCache*"). However, according to the progress bar, it keeps moving through the processes, still show 18 minutes now.

    Picture to show start of 3rd attempt.

    Thoughts or advise?


    *****Update*****

    After my initial post, it finally proceeded with the install. Successful install!

    Hey I didn't understand this part. Are you just installing on a blank partition or upgrading. Clean install implies blank partition, from tiger to leopard implies upgrading.

    Sorry, I wanted to indicate that I had erased my HD and installed snow leopard without going the "update" route.
