*How to install Leopard from a CPU Drop-in DVD without Tiger

Apple shipped a few Macs in the month(s) before the release of Leopard with a so called "CPU Drop-in DVD". This is an upgrade version and checks for the existence of Tiger on the target drive. This is of course very annoying eg. if you buy a new hard drive and want to install Leopard from scratch. However there's a pretty simple workaround for it.

1. Boot from the Mac OS X Leopard Upgrade DVD (hold 'C' while booting or hold the 'Alt/Option' key while booting and select the DVD). Notice that the check for existence of Tiger will fail (and "Continue" button is grayed out).

2. Choose the option of restoring from a (Time Machine) backup and go as far as you can (note: if you do actually have a Time Machine backup, pretend that you don't - making sure you've already removed any backup drives you may have plugged in). The "Searching for a backup" process will never finish (or at least I've not waited for it), so if you read this on the screen, you can proceed to the next step.

3. Now go back to the screen where the "Continue" button was greyed out and prevented you from proceeding with the installation. Notice that this button is now active and clickable!

4. Press "Continue" and install Leopard as you would with a full (unrestricted) install DVD.

Compatibility
Compatible with 10.4 ~ 10.5

*Tiger 10.4 users please read:

Snow Leopard software, reveals that those who have been hesitant to upgrade their older Mac's will be able to take advantage of Snow Leopard's bargain price, without the need to install the intermediate Leopard operating system first.

"For owners of Intel-based Macs who are still using the older Tiger version of the Mac OS, Apple is officially making Snow Leopard available only in a "boxed set" that includes other software and costs $169. "The reasoning is that these folks never paid the $129 back in 2007 to upgrade to Leopard. But here�s a tip: Apple concedes that this $29 Snow Leopard upgrade will work properly on these Tiger-equipped Macs, so you can save the extra $140." For those of you who think you need to upgrade to Leopard 10.5 ($299.95 Value) before you upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6, this inexpensive upgrade will save you $270.00.

We also confirmed that they were able to upgrade a system directly from Tiger to Snow Leopard. In addition, it is possible to completely erase a hard drive and install Snow Leopard without a pre-existing operating system in place, enabling users to bypass the possible headaches of an upgrade and go with a clean install instead. Many users upgrading from Tiger should probably consider backing up their files from Tiger and doing a clean install instead.

* "This transition isn�t always guaranteed as it would be from having Leopard 10.5 already installed, "and that�s because some older, Tiger-only third-party applications need to be upgraded to newer versions that work with Leopard or Snow Leopard." So make sure you update your software after you install. If this version doesn't work please order our universal installer part number 1008928 from our site.

Warranty
Opened box software is non-returnable & non-refundable. Defective software can be sent directly to WLM within 14 days for replacement only. WLM cannot warranty software against mishandling, improper installation, or compatibility conflicts.
