Question about Apple Computers & Internet
Apple G5 Power Mac freeze while trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.
Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

Probably the optical drive of your iMac G5 does not support DualLayer DVDs (DL is standard format, on which Mac OS 10.5 is originally delivered). Use an external DVD-drive for installation if (Apple>About this computer...> More info...>optical drive (disk burning)) does not tell you your mac is equipped with a DL-compatible drive.

Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.
insert the Mac OS X install disc.
press the start button while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
If it boots normally from the disc. you have a bad hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
