  I have a Power PC G4 (3.3) which I want to upgrade to Leopard. If I find someone using Leopard on their machine (even if it has an intel processor) and make a carbon copy clone will I be able to upgrade my machine to Leopard using the clone?  Unfortunately Leopard doesn't seem to be available from Apple anymore.

    That will probably not work because of the differences between PPC and Intel platforms.


    It is also a breach of the license agreement.


    You can still buy a retail copy of Leopard from Amazon or eBay, but prices are high.

    Once my purchased copy of the retail version of Leopard was chewed up by the DVD drive of a MacBook Pro.


    I called Apple (1-800-SOS-APPL) and they sent me a replacement for about $17. I still have them both...
