Mac OS X 10.5, or Leopard, comes with the same utility program every Mac since 10.3 has come with, Disk Utility. This powerful program allows users to not only create a dmg copy of a system disk, but it also allows them to burn it. The burnt copy of OS X 10.5 will be bootable, just like the original system disk, so it is the perfect way to back up Leopard for your Mac.

    Place your 10.5 DVD into your Mac’s optical drive and select the drive when it mounts on the left hand side of the Disk Utility window.

  3. 3

    Select “New Image” from the File menu. Name the disk. Select “None” from the Encryption menu and “CD/DVD Master” from the Format menu. Click “Save.” Remove the 10.5 DVD from your Mac once the dmg image is created.

    Select “Burn” from the Images menu and choose the 10.5 dmg. Insert a DVD-R at the prompt and click “Burn.”
