Hello

I'm wondering if anyone can let me know how to install Leopard 10.6 from an external hard drive? I'm currently running Tiger and have plugged in the drive gone to 'Disk Utility' and selected Leopard>Restart with etc. but it just restarts in Tiger.

Anyone know what i'm doing wrong?

Regards
Ian

Questions.
What Mac do you have?
What do you mean by DiskUtility>Leopard>Restart ??
Do you mean Leopard or SnowLeopard as 10.6 is SL and 10.5 is leopard?
How is either Leopard or SL on a External HD ??

I dont know what your doing wrong bc im having a hard time understanding what your trying to do and how ???

Please clarify a few things so others can help too

Hi

Sorry for being wet behind the ears.

I have an ibook G5 running Tiger. I have Leopard 10.5 on an external drive.

I want to install Leopard on the ibook.

I was told to connect the drive to the ibook>open Disc utilities> select my external drive>select my Leopard 10.5 on the hard drive>then click restart.

I do the above but it just restarts in Tiger still and does not give me the option to install Leopard. I just want a clean install of 10.5

Clueless!

I don't think you can install Leopard unless you have an install disk or have a disk image of the install disk.

This is not correct either. There never was an iBook G5. Most likely it's an iBook G4, or an iBook G3.

You need to tell us what the processor speed is. Leopard "officially" will only install on computers with at least an 867mhz cpu.

p.s. What's wrong with this computers internal drive?

can't use the discs on laptop, drive broken. I open up the start up disc from system preferences then select Leopard 10.5 from there and restart it but just launches Tiger. It's all there just can't get it to launch

Don't overlook or dismiss my question in post #7...it's sort of important!

Or to put it another way... where did this image that you have on the external drive come from?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
