    Default Leopard installation

    Hello,

    I have upgraded my macbook pro's hdd to a 320 giga hard dive. I've decided to make 2 partitions so I did and I've installed it using the official mac leopard upgrade dvd i've got with the macbook. Now I wanted to make a bootcamp partition but bootcamp was complaining that I should have only one partition instead of two. So I booted from the same dvd deleted the partitions and created one big partition. But the system is complaining that it cannot upgrade the system because Mac Os X 10.4 cannot be found on my computer. Do you have any suggestion?

    There are two kind of Mac OS X System DVDs. Regular and upgrade. If you had a regular you could just do as you want. With your the Macbook has to have Mac OS X 10.4 installed. So either install Mac OS X 10.4 first, then use the Upgrade DVD or try to find a full version to avoid the double work

    On Boot Camp: The Boot Camp Assistant will create the partition for you. Dont try to partition your HD with Disk Utility before. The steps are: setup 10.5 system, one partition. Then start Boot Camp Assistant and let it do the job. The partition will be created without destroying data on the Macbook. Even if you later dont want to use Boot Camp. Start the Boot Camp Assistatnt again and delete the Boot Cmp partition. After deleting the free space will be added to your Mac partition.
    This works completely different from Apple Disk Utility!!

    I've managed to install before the mac from the upgrade dvd without having anything else installed. I have no idea why it does not want to do it again . I was hoping that I will get a suggestion in here.

    Before you did the hardware upgrade you probably had 10.4 on the Macbook then used the Upgrade dvd to get up to 10.5 - that works.

    Now you have been buying a new HD, nothing on it. Once you try to use the upgrade DVD to install Leopard, the DVD will first look for an installed 10.4 cause it is an upgrade DVD, not a full version.

    Again, either install 10.4 first, then run the upgrade DVD to have Leo or get a full version of Leopard.

    One more to calrify. You got the Macbook Pro with 10.4 pre-installed. Once you insert the 10.5 upgrade DVD, the DVD will find the requested 10.4 system and do the upgrade.

    What you could do if you still have the old HD - I assume it has 10.5 running - requires an external Firewire drive with at least the capacity your old drive has.
    Get SuperDuper here
    http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDup...scription.html
    the unregistered free version will do.

    Install SuperDuper on your Macbook with the old HD in. Connect the external Firewire drive. Start SuperDuper and create a bootable clone of the system on the external drive. Switch the HD with the new 320GB. Again connect the external FW drive, start the Macbook holding the option key. Select the external drive as the boot volume. Will boot from the firewire drive. Start SuperDuper again and clone the System back to the new harddrive on your Macbook.
    Once done, reboot, start Boot Camp Assistant and go ahead.

    Uh, that does not sound too good. I have never had this issue.

    Did you check Apples Discussion board, click here
    and check here
    or here with some more useful information.
