10.5: One way to create an opaque menu bar
Authored by: alset on Nov 04, '07 07:13:18PM
Interestingly, Apple appears to have done the same thing on the main 10.5 installation screen, as its menu bar isn't translucent.

No, they didn't.

Open the DefaultDesktop.jpg file in CoreServices on the install DVD and you will find the same desktop image used on a fully installed system. Apple is just disabling the translucency of the menu bar on the installer OS. The /System directory on the DVD is invisible, so you'll need to get there from the command line or the "Go to Folder…" menu item.

For those that need assistance, open Terminal and issue this command:

open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Library/CoreServices/
… or, from "Go -> Go to Folder…" enter the following address:
/Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Library/

standing on the shoulders of giants
