    Chances are your G4 has a SCSI hard drive and target mode will not boot into that type of drive, only ATA drive

Os x 10.5


I have not been able to find any full retail versions from apple. I have found them on ebay and amazon. They are expensive and I do not have any more good disks with it. I found that the best os for g4 ppc macs is 10.4.11 but 10.5 will work on G4 867 and faster. I did not get much happiness from 10.5 on any G4.


So the rule of thumb I use is, 10.4 on G4 and 10.5 on G5 and up

If you have another MAC computer available, you can create a USB key to solve this problem:

If not, I'm afraid you will have to turn to an authorized apple service center. They will do the repair for you.

Upgrading from MAC OS 10.4 to OS 10.5


Apple has a list of specs to run it. Looks like yours falls within it. Although some things will need other requirements like a webcam for photobooth or ichat. But you should be able to get by. Might be a bit slower than some Macs running it, but as long as you don't have 20 things going on at once, you should be fine. Go to an Apple store and try it out first though to make sure you like it.
