Alternate method if unfamiliar with Disk Utility 'Restore'

1. convert Leopard dmg to read/write.

2. mount the new dmg.

3. edit it down to 4.35 Gb maximum. burn any of pkgs could need later.

4. select File/New/'Disc image from folder' then select mounted volume.

5. Prompted for destination and ....

6. create DISC IMAGE -read only (.dmg) or cd/dvd master (.cdr)

7. enter Admin password to create image.

8. rename .cdr to .iso if will use PC to burn disc.


Point of all of above if you now have a DVD-DL burner: I heard they are very unreliable in duplicating Mac OS X DVD-DL installers - Apple Corp. has no problem with that.


In order to Install as an Upgrade:

Here is easy safe way to delete languages: 1. simply SEARCH for 'Italian' or 'Danish', etc. A long list of folders will appear. Every single folder select enclosing folder (Resources) then delete all languages except 'English.lproj'. Should take about 2 hours, but nothing is deleted you do not decide to delete.

2. Another way is to search for '.lproj' and then delete all but English.

Every delete in System/Library requires entering password.

3. Another way is to use Monolingual app, BUT ABSOLUTELY MUST SET PREFERENCES FIRST. Prefs set whether to delete all G5 files, etc.


This will eliminate those unwanted languages under Options and then can upgrade Tiger to Leopard.
