Ok, Here's a short and quick foolproof guide to making a SL-DVD leopard install disc for 9a559... And this method works across the board for all other builds also..

What you need

1. Original Leopard developers seed (.dmg)(6.55Gb)
2. One blank DVD (+1 backup blank just in case you screw up)
3. Mac OS X 10.4.X Tiger (This is important, cos leopard screws up disc burning)
4. 6.55Gb+6.55Gb+4.7Gb=17.8Gb of harddisc space


Method

1. Mount the Original Leopard DMG (jus double click u idiot!!)
2. Open Disc Utility (under Applications -> Utilities)
3. Click on New Image (at the top u fool!!)
4. Name the image as dump (save on desktop!!)
5. Put the type as sparse image
6. Put the size as DL-DVD (8Gb), and click create

7. Mount dump.sparse
8. In disc utility, select the dump image and click the restore tab
9. Drag the mounted Mac OS X Install DVD to the Restore from field
10. Drag the mounted dump to the Restore to field (or equivalent)
11. Click Restore and wait.. (have some patience... ZEN...)

12. Once that is done, open up the dump mounted image
13. Remove the Developers Tools under Optional Installs
14. Use finder's Go to Folder option and navigate to /Volumes/dump/System
15. Go to Installation -> Packages
16. Proceed to remove anything that has Printer in it (u can always get from vendors)
17. Proceed to remove languages that you do not need (like french, german)
18. Verify in Disc Utility on the size of your dump (should be 4.3Gb or less)

19. Return to Disc Utility
20. Click on New Image
21. Name the image as burn (save on desktop!!)
22. Put the type as sparse image
23. Put the size as SL-DVD(4.7Gb), and click create
24. Select the burn image and click the restore tab
25. Drag the mounted dump to the Restore from field
26. Drag the mounted burn to the Restore to field (dont mix up!!!)
27. Click Restore and wait.. (have some patience... ZEN...)

28. Once its done, burn it to DVD (in Tiger, not leopard)


PS: Mods please sticky this as a resource for people who wanna make their own SL-DVD leopard install discs

anyway, if u do this method of creating a install DVD, the boot time is 15min before it reaches the installer... thats the downside of this method... YMMV...

hmmm nope, it still doesn't install. i unchecked printer drivers, X11 is still checked
looks like you can't erase as many languages as you like. It seems that you can only erase Brazilian Portuguese, Portuguese, and Polish. Can't erase German or French cuz it's necessary for an "upgrade" for the Mac OS X operating system.
any way to get around this problem? if i don't erase more than those 3 languages, i can't reduce my file size

It worked for me by deleting XCode, Printer drivers and the three pdf's in the mounted dmg window.

I have the same problem, the DVD I burned boots just fine, but after I get through all of the Install instructions, it says it can't install because it is missing parts, please restart and try again. The one I burned I erased ALL languages. Going to try another one without removing languages, just what YoMuS says above. Maybe you could post it on Usenet or the Pirate Bay or something (your disc image). Just an idea.

Anyone know how to modify it so it will install on an 800MHZ powerbook G4?

for me, i removed all my languages except english, and in the installer screen, i deselected all the languages... if u need some specific languages, do keep them... note that this has only been tried on clean install... but i think it shouldnt be a problem for upgrade... try removing really odd languages that u will never understand like chinese and korea and {censored} (i know all 3 languages anyway... but i dun need them on my os anyway)


EDIT: There's no way u can modify it to install inside 800Mhz PPC unless u hack into the installer and disable the hardware checks... And in that case, even if u did install, like what apple has said, the experience for 800Mhz PPC is terrible... So u might wanna consider sticking to tiger for now and wait for 10.4.11... thats my 2cents...
