Install Apple applications from the disc

For installing applications which can’t be installed separately from the operating system.

  1. Click the Finder icon on the dock (smiley face).
  2. On the top menu click Go -> Go to Folder.
  3. Enter the following:
    /Volumes/Name of Mac Disc/System/Installation/Packages
    For example:
    /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages or
    /Volumes/Mac OS X Install Disc 1/System/Installation/Packages

This will bring up a folder with separate installers for programs, some included are:

  • AddressBook
  • DVDPlayer
  • iCal
  • iChat
  • iTunes
  • Mail
  • Rosetta
  • Safari

It is recommend that you do not touch any other files in there unless you know what you are doing.
