Leopard will not install on an S/E30 but,
you probably are not using one of those.
How would we know that? By just guessing, I guess.
How about a few more details so that we can all start off in the same ballpark.
How big is the volume that Tiger is currently on and how you are trying to install it would be useful information as well
tiger has only 7.8 gb
and i was trying with preserve
I have a mac mini with the capacity of 40 gb. even it only shows 37&1/2
Why tiger is only showing 7.8 gb.
my question is should I do a clean install to correct the problem
37.5GB is about right for a 40GB drive
Do a clean Install.
You have nothing stored on that machine anyway.
Go straight to Leopard
my version of leopard is an upgrade, I have to have tiger before I can install
does this have a problem
There was not an upgrade version of Leopard
but there was an upgrade for Snow Leopard.
Tiger and Leopard were two distinct versions of OS X and as such the only way to upgrade from Tiger to Leopard was to buy the full retail version of Leopard and install it.
Go ahead and install Leopard by putting the DVD into the optical drive and restarting your Mac while holding down the "C" key or while holding down the "Option" key, then choosing the DVD as the boot volume.
the disk I got is the only one I used and i had leopard installed. Then some happened to leopard and when I tried to reinstall it stated that I have to reinstall tiger.which I tried and it only comes whit not enough of hard drive to to install leopard. any suggestioins
I refer you to my previous post,
what happened when you booted the Mac as instructed?
reply on leopard
I think I know what I did wrong.I put in all the upgrades which made less space. I think I should of not installed anything and I think that would give the space needed for leopard.
what do you think about that.
Try it and see.
Of course, you could always install a larger capacity hard drive in that mini and be done with the space issue
I was right I did not load anything and leopard loaded
