    Default What are the risks of installation?

    I have a patched DVD+R disc of MAC OS X. I know it's Leopard something so I'm posting here, what version is it? I don't know. I just want to know what it could do to my computer. What damages are possible? I was going to do it, but my dad didn't want me to because he's afraid it might blow out the $200 CPU in this PC. I have other computers I could try it on, but I suppose I should be careful. What could this damage in my computer? I use Dell computers if that helps.

    Okay forget the risks of installation, I decided to use vmware workstation and I have a few errors here and there when I try to install ( I followed some guides ) it's currently installing now so I'll what and see what happens, but I keep reading it says mount the mac image. Does this mean the patched version or the real version? I've been using the patched version. (using my DVD rather than mounting) Does it matter?

    Okay I've gotten close, I've seen the Mac come up a few times when trying it using Daemon Tools (trying with DVD now) but the first time it said it couldn't install. The error I'm seeing most is that it's failing to create /Library/Logs because it's a read only file system. Reminder I'm using vmware. I'm having various other errors too. ATA Disk: Checksum Cookie not valid; Failed to count number of files in "/System/Library/StartupItems/" no such file or directory. I have different errors for each try depending on if I Power Off then Power On or reset or use the DVD/VirtualDVD. This sure is very difficult.

    By the way, my version of VMware is 6.02. I read somewhere that this isn't recommended so tell me if I need to upgrade or something.

    Question

    As far as i know and experimented with my computers (actually im writing in my Dell Studio 15 with Leopard 10.5.7) the only risk is that if u dont make a backup of ur info, u will lose it n.n.... and if u want to install windows again, u have to have ur drivers and all that crap... btw, when u say "risks" what r u referring???

    When I say risks I mean what can go wrong, what can it do damage to if you do something wrong. I've heard from some ways of installing that it can screw up your computer. As for info and stuff there's stuff that I really could care less about and getting drivers is easy. If I did do this I would format one of my partitions and not the ones that are important.
