    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    OS X.5 Leopard may not install due to lack of drivers. Your MBP came with either Lion OS X.7 or Snow Leopard OS X.6 depending on when it was manufactured in 2011 and there is no going backwards with operating systems. If you need Leopard for PowerPC applications, consider updating to newer versions that will run on Intel processors without Rosetta. And BootCamp must have the hard drive in one single partition before it will operate.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
