Got my DVD on the release date.
Had a few minutes to do an install this past Sunday morning.
Spent 1.5 hours with Apple Support. No progress.
On hold with them again this morning as I blog …
Symptoms? During the installation-initiated reboot, my Leopard DVD is ejected. After I log in I see a Finder screen with two disk icons and nothing more.
My platform? A MacBook Pro laptop.
(And BTW, I’ve been able to reproduce this on two such laptops!)
Given it was from Apple, I just expected this would be a smooth transition.
At this point, I need to get back to work. I’ll wait for the re-release.
If you Google “Leopard installation issues”, you’ll get a lot of hits.
I’m very disappointed. I expected more.
