There have been some reported issues with PS7 on Mac Os 10.4.. first i would try repairing disk permissions.. if that doesn't work, you may need to do a fresh install, then download all the updates before you run the application for the first time.

APPLE IMAC G4 - TRYING TO INSTALL OS WITHOUT DISK EJECT BUTTON


Reastart the iMac and at the same time hold down the mouse left click button. If that does not work.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F.
    Note: The Command key has the Apple and (commandkeysymbol.gif) icons on it.
  3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
  4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
  5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
  6. Type: mac-boot
  7. Press Return.

Macintosh HD will open from desktop icon but won't stay open. I can access all but applications files using finder but Macintosh HD closes when I click on applications. I recently transferred files from...


Sounds like you may have some permissions issues - I would suggest sticking in the OS disc that came with your iMac, restarting, and holding the "C" key when you hear the chime - this will make it boot off the CD. Once booted from it, go to Tools->Disk Utility, choose your disk, and do "Repair Permissions". Once that is done, you can quit the installer and restart. If that doesn't work, the next step I would recommend is running DiskWarrior, which is $99 - this is like an industrial permissions/hard drive directory repair disc, used by many professionals. If that doesn't solve it, you will likely have to back up your user data and do a fresh install of the OS from the discs you have. Good luck!

Thanks for the help!


Hi there,

That sounds like it would fix it. Have you recently updated the memory in the imac? It may be incompatable. Otherwise it may simply have become faulty over time.

Please make sure that before you open up your imac, you're not voiding your warrenty. I know that the aluminium imacs allow this, but i dont think the G4 versions do.

Hope this helps,

Nathan.

I WANT TO REPLACE MY 40G HARD DRIVE ON MAC G4


You have mentioned that you are looking at replacing the hard drive with a SATA one. Since the G4 iMacs use PATA hard drives (an older standard) you will have to make sure that the drive you use is a PATA.

Aside from that, you should be able to upgrade to a reasonably large hard drive up to 500GB and then format the drive for a mac.

The only real trouble you will have in my opinion will be the installation as the process for taking apart a G4 iMac is very advanced. There are a few guides on how to do this, just make sure that your skill level is advanced enough to attempt the upgrade. Also, of course, make sure you have backed up all of your data and everything before you start... that can mean a world of difference to you later on if anything goes wrong.

I would personally take a trip to the Apple store and talk to a genius about this sort of upgrade, or look at other upgrade options such as a bigger external hard drive because there are many complications in this upgrade and those two options are easier.

If you are interested in attempting the upgrade yourself you can look at this explanation of the process, it is quite thorough and has pictures showing internals and the process. http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/systems/imac_g4/imacg4_takeapart.html

If at the end of that you want to go ahead and open your box up by all means do and I will be here to offer as much support as I can.

Regards,
Jack

IMac very unstable on 10.4.11


The disk utility program is the key. You need to run the app to repair disk permissions. You may have to start up from the installer disk for Tiger to get access to the program.
