I don't know if this question has been asked but I am having no luck coming up with an answer, despite searching extensively here and elsewhere.

1. I have an Acer Aspire One 160GB and a Leopard retail DVD. It seems the easiest way to get Leopard onto my laptop would be to to buy a DVD burner/player that supports booting up off of it to install Leopard on it. What DVD burner would you suggest as a cheap model to buy to get Leopard installed on my laptop that would allow me to boot from it?

2. Will my laptop even support booting from a USB DVD drive? it seems it will from what I have read but nothing seems to say for sure. I guess I may need to check the BIOS?

Excuse my lack of knowledge in this area. I've never done anything like this before. I am a Mac guy but recently bought a XP netbook for portability's sake and now am finding I can actually get Leopard onto it.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Try using Empire EFI, search for a disc that supports your board and processor

Try this MyHack- "myHack Installer 1.0 RC5.2 Released", http://osx86.sojugar...rc5-2-released/

For PC details see my sig.

For more specific steps I have used see http://www.insanelym...p...93277&st=20 post #34. It's not the same Dell but I have repeated it on 3 similar dells and it works. I have updated specific steps written somewhere if you post back you need them
