Installing Leopard on my iMac

When I start installation I am told Leopard can't be installed on my computer without making changes which will result in erasing all my data. Is this true with no way out? My Imac has Intel innards. iMac 6.1, OS 10.4.11, 2.16 GHz, Intel Core 2 duo, Memory 1 GB.

Well..what operating system is currently on the mac now? this is not a usual thing to lose all the data, so it must be a fundamental shift..

there are other alternatives, too, like online backup..

There are ways out but a clean install is always the best way to go especially if you do not have multiple partitions. The current installation partition ( What type of partitioning is on there) EXT3, NTFS, FAT etc?

    What do you mean by a desktop memory unit? If you mean a flash drive yes if the flash drive has a big enough capacity, if not i would suggest you burn the data into a DVD or CD.

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)

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?

Can,t get imac G5 W Tiger to Boot all the way to desktop.Turns on,I get,Taa Daa sound,then just folder w flashing question mark.?How do I access Bios?


Hi, You need a Tiger or Leopard installation disk. Then You start up the system holding down "C" instead of installing you start the "disk utillity" and repair it.
You can access singel user mode by starting up the system holding down command + S.

When I try to install Leopard on my iMac Iget a message that it cannot be installed on my computer unless I make some changes which will erase my hard disc completely. Is there no way around thiks?


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.
