I have an external drive to which I have intalled a fresh copy of 10.5.4 from a universal installer.  I would like to upgrade the the installation on the external drive to 10.5.8 using the combo updater (or another method if one exists) so that I can boot from it.

 

However, I no longer have machines that can run 10.5.4, they all need a higher version of 10.5.  Therefore, I cannot boot into the 10.5.4 to run the combo updater.  If I could run the combo updater without rebooting into the 10.5.4 partition, I could then boot from the updated external drive partition into 10.5.8

 

So is it possible to update 10.5.4 to 10.5.8 without rebooting into the 10.5.4 partition?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike
