Divide into two discs?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ummm my DVD that I'm using to burn has only 4.7 gb available. Is there a way to divide the .cdr file into two separate files so I can burn it onto 2 separate discs?

Or do a retail-disc-image method of installing, which of course requires a secondary Leopard install. This might work. Probably best just to burn a double-layer. I think best buy has them in sale this week (if u are in the US) for less than a buck each.

No, this won't work...

 

You need to reduce the size of the DMG with the method to squeeze Leopard onto one SL-DVD. Removing Languages + Printers etc. There's a guide on the forum, I'm too lazy to find it now for you - just search & you'll find it :D

 

Another solution is to install straight from the .dmg onto another partition using Pacifist from Leopard - then dual-boot Snow Leopard + Leopard.

Has anyone been successful to boot dual layer dvd+r DL discs? I keep getting EBIOS errors. What about DVD-r DL disc, would it help?

Or USB/PXE method would be nice too if possible

So that's how they shrink the Leopard images to fit on single-layer DVD-Rs.

I tried the shrinking tutorials myself, both with using disk utility to make r/w images and delete files, and with carboncopycloner to exclude some things, both methods made disks that looked fine but wouldn't boot for me (MBP early 08). I ended up getting a successful install by simply expanding the dmg onto a usb drive (actually I made a separate partition on a usb drive I usually use for timemachine) and booting off that, worked a treat and seemed much faster than a dvd to install from.
