I keep getting an input/output error when ever I try to copy the orginal DMG what do I do?

That means that somethig is probably corrupt.

I've come up with these instructions for creating a Single-Layer Leopard DVD, but alas, it is not bootable! I've conceded to burning to a DL DVD, but I think the last step may just be that it needs to be "blessed":

1. Superuser yourself (or use sudo for each command).
2. hdiutil convert leopard.dmg -format UDRW -o leopard2.dmg
3. hdiutil mount -readwrite leopard2.dmg
4. Delete whatever files you wish (probably XCode, for you)
5. hdiutil create -srcdir /volumes/"Mac OS X Install DVD" -format SPARSE /leopard-dvd.dmg
6. hdiutil convert leopard-dvd.dmg.sparseimage -format UDTO -o leopard4.dmg
7. Burn your image with Disk Utility.
8. Boot.

Any ideas?

I tried the "Restore" method outlined above (without even running into this thread) without success.

Before you burn the new image to a dvd-r, can't you use the 'bless' command in the Terminal to bless the new image? E.g. by mounting it and doing a "bless --folder /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Library/CoreServices"?

Just a thought.

Yes, tried the steps on my MacBook Pro, but again, I cannot boot off it. Can my MB Pro burn DL?

Okay, I follow your instructions, but when I boot on the DVD, I just see a blue screen with a cursor. The arrow turn to the rainbow blob, and back to the arrow. After that, nothing, just a blue screen with a cursor.

Anyone help me please ! :)

As my old MacMini has only DVD-ROM (not DL) reader, so I need to get that new Leopard on normal DVD matrix badly. I convertet osx-leopard105.dmg with DiskUtil for read/write .. but when I mount new disk image, I cant remove Xcode Tools under Optional Installs. Properties shows, that I have only read access... Verify Disk Permission also not working on mounted image - it shows "no valid packages" ... will be thankful for any advice...
