    Nifties in Leopard

    Something I thought was nifty: when using the .mac portion of System Preferences, the "back to my mac" option allows screen sharing etc, i'm not sure if anyone saw this or thought it was worth noting...

    Frustrated with Leopard

    you need to defrag (iDefrag also from makers of iPartition) before you can partition. I posted the instructions in a few different places. the point is to compact your data so you can create your new partition

    Try this EDIT: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T UPGRADE. It's just going to waste a great deal of time.

    What he means is creating a separate partition on your first (or, much faster way) your second drive just big enough (7Gig) to "restore" the image you "acquired" to it then restarting (startup disk) to that partition, then doing the installation from there...

    Front Row on unsupported computer.

    Perhaps I should be posting this elsewhere but, what are the keyboard commands to navigate Frontrow? I can start it... but then I can't do much else, and its not frozen. Its weird.... any ideas? I don't want to report this as a bug because i'm not sure of what i'm doing. EDIT: NEVERMIND

    Front Row on unsupported computer.

    Leopard Works great on my 1 Gig G4 PB... I think it works better then Tiger but that is just from initial impressions, I haven't fully tested it (CS3, REASON, LOGIC + VST's). BUT, it runs VLC Really Well. and thanks to this, I just figured out how to use front row, haven't played with that yet either though...

    Installing Leopard

    It Seems the biggest problem is partitioning with iPartition... I couldn't figure it out for the longest time, then I realized that YOU HAVE TO DEFRAG THE HARD DRIVE. This was because even though I had 16Gigs of Free space, I had data written at the Beginning and th END of the partition... So I compacted it (300Gig ~ 16 hours) then I went back into iPartition and Low and behold, I had free space to resize... Then I created my two additional partitions, restored to one, installed to the other, system runs great! Perhaps I should post a Guide?

    Leopard DVD's not bootable

    I ran into the same problem, What I ended up doing was, after creating a partition to install Leo on (14+ hour defrag) I created a second Partition (7Gb) and restored the image to the second Partition. Make sure you name them in some way that you will know which is which, then I went to "Startup disk" and selected the volume which I had Restored the file to... no burning nesc. I'm in the process of installing right now, I will let you know if it completes. In Short: Create 2 extra Partitions (Recommend having at least 20Gb of free space) 1: 12Gig (I did it with 8) 2: 8Gig (I did it with 7) Restore Image to 8Gig Partition (Disk Utility) Goto System Preferences Select Startup Disk Select Volume which was restored then hit "Restart" Make sure to select the appropriate installation volume when going through the installer I should note that the installer says you need a minimum of 10.1Gig (edited for clarity) in your installation destination, I disabled everything and it said I was good to go. T-8 minutes until complete. EDIT: Installation was successful, MAN She Screams :0)
