OS X 10.5 comes on a dual layer DVD. Is your computer able to read this type or is it a standard DVD.

IMac Missing operating system screen


The CD was most likely not burned in the correct way that Apple requires for OS installs. You can't just simple "copy" a system disk.

Try getting a hold of an actual legitimate copy of the OS and try again. This is not generally a problem when actual system disks are used.

Your not going to be able to but if you close the laptop lid and plug the computer into the G5 you might be able to install the OS from the G5 to the laptop. Make sure to do a full install.

Computer freezes at grey screen


  1. Start from your Mac OS X Install disc: Insert the installation disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
  2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
  3. Click the First Aid tab.
  4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
  5. Select your Mac OS X volume.
  6. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.

Mac wont turn on


G5 will not boot off of OS9. Since you are more of a pc guy, think of it like this, you buy a used newer pc meant to run Vista, and you are trying to load Windows 98 on there. You can run any of the OSX flavors on there...
Depending on your Model (scroll to bottom) of G5 you need to be running...
2003 -> at least 10.2 Jaguar 2004 -> at least 10.3 Panther 2005 -> at least 10.4 Tiger
10.5 Leopard is Apple's newest operating system and it can be run on any of these models. You need to buy a retail copy (has drivers for every model) unless you buy exactly the right system disk for that specific model.
OS9 can be installed and run inside of OSX using something called Classic mode. This would be like running a virtual XP Pro inside of Vista.
