    I have a feeling this is going to be a really noob question but anyway...

    After many unsuccessful attempts of installing different versions of Leopard on my PC, I installed Tiger 10.4.8. Ive read about how to update to 10.4.10 so I'll try that soon.

    Seeing as its a hackintosh, I obviously cant update it the normal way otherwise It will cause problems.

    So anyway, the noob question, is there any way I can upgrade to Leopard without having to actualy try and install Leopard? Is there an update disc around? As I said, Leopard really does not work so thats not an option. The furthest I got was installing Leopard but it not booting and ive tried fixes so I want to update from Tiger instead.

    Because you already have a PC and its relatively new. Or you can't afford a mac.

    No, you have to install "Leopard" first. From there you can do combo updates from 10.5.1 to 10.5.3. After that, you can do the standard software update to 10.5.4. If you are having trouble installing "Leopard", make sure you uncheck the vanilla kernel in the customize screen. Just install the SSE2 support (if you have a SSE2 processor) and either the mbr or guid depending on how your drive is formatted. Hope this helps.

    If you men through software update then no.

    BUT - if you download a leopard ISO then mount it, you can run "OSInstall.pkg" or something like that and it will install leopard without having to boot a DVD.
