    Default Apple Powerbook G4 1.33 Ghz Processor

    Hello, I just a bought a Apple Powerbook G4 1.33 ghz processor 15 inch monitor, it came with leopard installed on it and I downloaded a copy of OSX 10.4 Tiger to install. I was doing some reading before hand and found out that you cannot install a burnt copy of OSX onto a Mac computer. I was wondering if that was true, and if it is is there any way around it?

    You'll have to clarify what you meant. Did you mean that you got a HDD that has OS X on it, then cloned it to a CD/DVD, then took that and tried to install it? Or did you mean that you burnt a copy of the OS X installation disc, then it doesn't boot up?

    If it's the former, then try installing via TDM (Target Disk Mode) with another Mac, using the same cloning method you did earlier.

    If it's the latter, it's either your Mac has booting problems, the installation disc is fake, or the installation disc was not burnt properly—or that your Mac is unable to read DVDs.

    So you downloaded a copy of 10.4 (Tiger), as an image file - then burnt it to DVD? As far as I know you can.

    I have installed 10.5 Generic installs from burnt copies many a time! (Let me state that I work at a Service Provider - and at times its a lot easier then rooting through piles of DVDs looking for the one model-specific version!) Even installed it from a netboot image - so I can't really see their being any issues.

    As long as it is the Generic image you have? If not - then theres multiple installation DVDs for every model. (I mean like the OEM type ones you get in the box) These however, will only work on a specific model/batch.
