Default OS X 10.5 via external cd/dvd ??? - 10-09-2009, 06:08 PM

Hi Guys,

Why can't I load OS X 10.5 disc from an external cd/dvd drive?

Thank You.

By the way I have Ubuntu and an 8GB HD

Maybe some more info will help.

I understand the linux will not run a .exe file but why cant i boot straight from the cd/dvd drive and have the OS X boot run?

I have successfully transferred the OS X disc to a usb flash drive but have had trouble with the combo update.

Please help.
