Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop
My g4 laptop's dvd drive is broken and today i tried intalling the new operating system with an external DVD Drive: Hewlett Packard USB Dual layer.
It won't let me do it! once i double click the osx installer i 2ble click on restart and it just restarts my computer and goes no further. It gives me ONLY the option to restart again. Any suggestions? I'd apreciate if anyone can help me......!!!!!!
You're in luck if you have another mac because you can now use it's drive to install from. Connect the computers together using a firewire cable then restart the mac with the broken drive holding down the T key at the bong until a firewire symbol appears on screen. The other mac can now see it and can install the software to it as an external drive.
Otherwise you would need a firewire cd drive or USB to Firewire adaptor for your cd drive. If you get one of those you hold the alt key while rebooting and this will display a list of bootable devices.
On the latest OSX disks it has a folder for network cd/dvd access for intallation but again you need another mac to mac use of it.
All the Best
