only way i can think of is to use a third party partition utility or try to use a linux live cd and partition it through command line

Ok, i partioned the drive using Boot camp. I now have 20gb free on the other partition. I am done downloading, and I am going to burn using unrarx. Once it is done, do I just stick it in? Will it let me choose which partition to send it to. I am going to leave the computer running for 3 days until I go on vacation, so I will stay seeding.

what's the method for burning leopard to a DL DVD

Open Disk Utility, drag the dmg to Disk Utility, insert the Dual Layer DVD, click on the DMG within disk utility, and click "Burn".

Is is there any live CD utility for OSX that may allow to format the harddisk with HFS+ ?

I had Ubuntu on the mac mini and now there is no way to install OSX again... :-(

It does not recognizes the harddisk. damn...

This is how i did it (installed on my External HD 250gig)

Made 3 partitions (1: Media 2:Leopard 3:Leopard disk)

So i restored the DMG to the 3th partition en rebooted my mac holding ALT.
The 3th partition showed up as a installation disk and i entered the setup.
Then i selected the second partition and installed leopard on that.

Easy like that!

Would you guys mind if I went ahead and wrote up a detailed guide on how to install Leopard via Boot Camp?



That would be much appreciated :angel: :)

to remove xcode from the dvd:

1. Open Disk Utility
2. Hit File, then choose to open the leopard image
3. the leopard image should be attatched. go in to the files and delete xcode.

i dont know if the changes will save into the dmg, but im pretty sure this will work.

OK, I have tried 3 times now to do this. I have a G4 iMac, and a 20GB iPod with Firewire connections. I erased the iPod with disc utility, use carbon copy cloner to copy the disc image onto the iPod, went to system preferences and choose the iPod to start off of, and all I get is the Apple Logo. If I restart the computer holding down the option key, I get the do not enter sign (zero with a line through it) any help is appreciated!
thanks

Here is my method of install, it works good on my iBook G4 but since I was semi-clueless as I did it, you could end up wasting some disk space.

What you will need is 1.) the leopard disk image 2.) your tiger install disks .3) time.

First you need to partition your startup disk, since you cant do this you need to put in your install disk and go to utilities > disk utility. i partitioned my disk off in 2 which was a mistake, so i advise 3 if you want to boot into tiger. make 1 that is 5.05 GB, just enough to fit the dmg contents (i named it install), then make your tiger and leopard partitions whatever size you want with the space you have left.

Now you need to install Tiger, so install it on yout Tiger partition. then we need to mount the disk image and go to disk utility. select the install partition and go to restore. restore the leopard disk image on to the install partition. when it is done, boot into the install partition and install it on your leopard partition. it worked fine for me, everything is great. if you can find out how to erase the contents of the install partition you could use it for timemachine.
