    what's on the 1st dvd and the 2nd one.

    fucking downloading the 2nd disc and it's HUGE (going to take me about 20 hours).


    the first disc is a lot smaller (4 or 5 gigs). Is that just os x and the 2nd disc all the developer tools n'stufF?

    theres only 1 dvd when you buy tiger at the store, I think. I'm pretty sure the second DVD only has iLife and the developer stuff.

    gotcha


    do you know how to make an iso out the dmg? Can I just burn the dmg to a dvd and install os x that way? I can't seem to find anything that can convert it to iso

    I've tried MagicISO, UltraISO, and I'm still looking through nero to see if it can convert it

    I forget exactly how you burn the OS and make it bootable. You can't just toss it on a CD and go, there's an extra step.

    I know it can be done through Disk Utility once you've mounted the dmg file.

    yeah I can't figure out how to convert it to iso or anything. Every program I tried gives me errors.

    all I wanna do is install os x on my mbp :(

    I can't find them anywhere. I've had an Ibook, powerbook, and now mbp. Can't find any of the damn discs for any of them.


    my friend has 2 macbooks, a few mini macs and he couldn't find them either.

    :rofl:


    I suck

    though I made a udf something or other of the dmg file with nero for the first disc and it appears to work. I put it in and it gave me the option to install os x.

    I'm not sure if it's bootable yet though. I can check until this stupid music is done transferring over.

    i hope so, I really need to do a clean install of os x on my mbp. This install is from my powerbook about 2 years ago.

    while it's still running pretty smooth, nothing beats a fresh install.


    + I got a 7200rpm 100gb hdd for it :big grin: :big grin: :big grin:

    I hope you're downloading the mbp restore disks, because a vanilla OS X install dvd won't do shit for your laptop -- it's PPC only afaik.

    if they're not mbp-specific, I bet they won't work; most of them perform hardware checks early on in boot to see if you're running it on the right hardware, for compatibility reasons. :dunno:
