  2. ok, thank you so much!
  3. I sent u a message, but I dont' know if you got it. Do you happen to have the link somwhere (prob not, but that's ok) or what you put in to search. I'm using a MBP and it's such a pain in the a$$ to find stuff on the apple site edit* I went on the apple site and found one thing about it and it showed the drive as being a black enclosure pic on the desktop. I was wondering if yours looked like this or like mine which is a little yellow enclosure with a usb 2.0 icon on it
  4. So, I got leopard and everything on a dvd and started it up and it asks of course for a destination. I have an old 20 gig harddrive from an old laptop, so I erased everything on it with Disk Utility and when I went to select it it has the red exclamation point on it saying "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume. Mac OS X cannot start up from this volume." I checked the info of the drive and it says it's bootable. I was wondering if anybody knows what this means and if I can fix it, Thank you!

    Leopard Installation Method

    I think you should be able to do that by just using Disk Utility

    Leopard Installation Method

    I got the CD ready and everything, and it's all good. So, I plugged in an extra old laptop drive of mine, and it says it can use it to boot up. I was wondering if anybody knew how to fix this, thanks edit*- looked at the info about it, and at Bootable it says "Yes", so I don't understand

    Leopard Installation Method

    Well, the file you're downloading is probably a .rar, so you'll just open it up and then you'll get the dmg. The single dvd thing is right above your post, I don't know much more than that
  8. So, when using my ipod instead of a dual layer dvd, where do I put the .dmg? Can it just be put anywhere? edit*- Or am I just supposed to put the .app in my iPod that says "Install Mac OS X.app" . I'm really confused by this, and don't know what to do, any help would be appreciated, thanks! edit #2*- Now I'm really confused, do I put all of the install files on my desktop in a file named OSX or do I put them on the iPod in a folder called Desktop? I seem to be getting more the confused the more i work on it, errr! edit #3*- going to bed, hopefully this will all make sense in the morning, it's 4 in the morning here, thanks!
