My current software is 10.4.11 and to get any further I need to have the bare 10.5.0 download, and I can't seem to find this download link anywhere. Every-time I try to get a newer verson (10.5.1 - etc) it will not let me download them because it says "Couldn't open "MacOSXUpdCombo10.5.8.pkg". This package type requires Mac OS X 10.5."

MacBook, OS X Server

    I would not recommend upgrading to Leopard. A better course is to upgrade to Snow Leopard.


    Upgrading to Snow Leopard


    You can purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.


    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.


         Snow Leopard General Requirements


           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor

           2. 1GB of memory

           3. 5GB of available disk space

           4. DVD drive for installation

           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;

               fees may apply.

           6. Some features require Apple’s iCloud services; fees and

               terms apply.

    Apple no longer sells Leopard. You will have to buy it from a third-party. You may not get what you actually need when buying on eBay. Leopard will be expensive. Eventually, you will have to upgrade to Snow Leopard from Leopard.
