That is because Leopard will reformat the drive. Best option is to backup what is on your hard drive then follow the installation from there. It makes the OS more stable that way.

20" iMac Boot


Ar this is a regular problem i get when people try to install Windows XP or Linux on Boot camp e.t.c.
What's happened is Linux has Tampered with the boot up files and now it won't be able to boot into Linux or Leopard.
What you need to do is insert you Leopard Install disk that came with you iMac Into the Disk Drive, the disk/disks are grey and may be two CDs or 1 DVD.
Restart the iMac and the moment you hear the chimes go off when it boots up, Hold down C on the keyboard. The boot disk for leopard will then boot up,
From here follow the instructions and if your lucky you may be able to upgrade, if not, go through the system utility and repair disk permissions e.t.c.
If nothing works, You will have to do a clean install,
But you may be able to recover a thew images and mp3 files with a great bit of software i like to use, http://www.prosofteng.com/products/data_rescue.php
You do have to pay for it, and you will need to install it on macbook e.t.c. if you have one in order for it to work If your confused there is a number of guides out there on that website or on google
Hope i have been of any help
Regards

My imac 0s 10.5.7 goes blank and restarts mid work. I thought maybe a mouse problem so took off the wireless and put on the one that came with the imac. That didn't solve the problem.


It sounds like either a hardware problem that has been shown up when you installed Leopard, or your Leopard install hasn't gone smoothly.
IS it a new install?

Installing Leopard on my iMac


Hi,

Yes you will have to clean the disc.
But if you have another mac hook it up to another mac, boot in firewire slave mode, and save thefiles.. (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=58583)

Imac / illustrator10


According to something I read in another forum:
Use migration assistant (in utilities) to copy over Illustrator 10 via firewire from your G4 to your imac. This is the only thing that might work without upgrading to a newer version of Illustrator. 

I'm planning on trying it with both Illustrator 10 and Indesign 2.0 - Photoshop 7 won't go at all no matter what one tries according to what I've read. I'll be upgrading to CS3 for Photoshop. No choice.

2 Problems: 1) Unable to get printer to print from desktop; 2) Kodak SW won't install on laptop


Download and install the new software and printer firmware from kodak.com (link below - firmware and software is the same for all the 5000 units). Do not use the CD, and Uninstall all previous versions before installing the new software you download from the site.
