Loading OSX 10.5

A friend of mine bought me the upgrade from OSX 10.4 to 10.5. However whenever I attempt to load it onto the computer it stops at the purple galaxy screen and goes no further. I let it go for 10 hours before rebooting it. When I had someone look at it they took the disc and were able to successfully load it onto another macbook. Any ideas?

When the installation stops, try to press the Escape button to see where it gets stocked. You might have to do a fsck -p command to fix your hard drive.
