Hi there. I am new to this forum. I have tried everything I know... now I am looking for your help.

I received a 10.5.4 upgrade disk on DVD+R DL. My Powerbook did not read it.

I have a MacBook Pro which does read it... so I burned a copy onto DVD-R DL... my Powerbook still did not read it.

I have connected both computers together and tried to install from using the MacBook Pro's drive... it doesnt allow for install.

I made an image onto my Powerbook... and tried to boot off it... it doesnt allow that either.

I have opened the mounted image and it asks to restart... then my computer just restarts and the disk image is no longer mounted so it doesnt proceed with the install.

I have now downloaded Pacifist.

Where do I go from here? Any ideas? Let me know if you can help me out... would love to have PB G4 with 10.5 on it!

10.5.4 ships as a pressed disc, not a DVD+R. If you have a pirated or other non-genuine disc, you will have to purchase a legitimate disc.

It is against the rules of this forum to discuss anything that violates copyright law.

If you have provided the correct machine specs yes the PB will read and install from a genuine original copy of Leopard OS X.5. Full retail install DVDs are black coloured and do not buy a system restore silver grey disc and Leopard as supplied with another computer will not work.
