Shrink Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard on single-layer DVD


This is a tutorial video on how to shrink Mac OS 10.5 Leopard so it can fit on a single-layer DVD. As you may (or may not) know, Mac OS 10.5 Leopard doesn’t fit on a single-layer DVD, it requires a dual-layer DVD. There is a way so you can fit it on an USB stick, but on older G4 machines, there is USB 1.1, which is slow, and it would take forever to install. By removing all languages and all printer drivers plus the Xcode Tools, you can make Leopard fit on a single-layer DVD. Check out the video for more info. Also, this is also my first video edited on iMovie for iOS, available for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. Also, this trick may work also with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, but I’m unsure. Hope you enjoyed!

    If you could reply asap please, why didn't your internal drive work? That's my only option is the optical drive that came in my g5.
