I am trying to install Leopard on a Mac that is running a 933MHz with 1.5 gb of memory.

When I run the installer it passes the disk verification but during the installer I receive an error that I can not bypass.

It reads.
"The installer could not validate the contents of the 'BaseSystem' package."

I have tried using my leopard disk on other computers because I do have multiple licenses so I have had no problems with the disk prior to this.

Is it possible that I am getting this error because the computer is barely meeting the system requirements?

I tried doing the upgrade version originally when i received this error but then I tried it again in the clean install and still receive this error.

Thanks.

Haven't installed leopard yet but try taking out a Ram chip and swapping about till you get a Ram configuration that lets you install - that could be the issue
