Hi, we have a Power Mac G5 M9592LL/A with Mac OS X 10.4.11 (8S165) and I would like to install Leopard 10.5.8.

Where can I buy this upgrade?

 

Regards

Look on eBay or Google the installer part numbers to possibly find at an on-line store. Here's what to look for:

 

MB427Z/A  Leopard 10.5.1 install DVD

MB576Z/A  Leopard 10.5.4 install DVD

MB021Z/A  Leopard 10.5.6 install DVD (single user)

MB022Z/A  Leopard 10.5.6 install DVD (5-user family pack)

After you install the base 10.5, download & install the 10.5.8 combo update at http://support.apple.com/downloads/Mac_OS_X_10_5_8_Combo_Update

 

The DVD should look like this

Caution - Leopard does not support classic mode. So, if you currently open OS 9 apps in classic mode, you won't be able to do this if you upgrade to Leopard.
