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.

Screen freezes when reloading system disc


Instructions

Back up any important files already on your G4's hard drive. A factory restore completely wipes the system of all files you've created so, if possible, make sure you have another copy of all your files, images, music, etc.

Connect your G4 to its charger. Restoring the computer is a delicate process that erases and reinstalls the most basic and important files of your system. If the computer runs out of battery before the restoration is complete, files may be damaged or left uninstalled. The result of this varies from having to restart the process completely to permanent dysfunction of your computer. Play it safe. Make sure you have plenty of battery left and the computer is plugged into the wall.

Locate your Mac OS X Install CD/DVD. If you have lost the original disc or never received one (a common problem when purchasing used computers), there are a few options to consider. The first is to ask around; if you have friends or family with a Mac computer they may still have their CD. It would be usable on your computer. If this option fails, look online for a download of the installation CD. Some sites offer installation CDs for all kinds of computers, including the G4.

Insert the install disc into your computer's disk drive. Once visible, click the "Install Mac OS X" button. Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your computer preferences and begin installation.

Select a destination disc for the installation. This is typically the "Macintosh HD" icon. Next, click "Options," and follow the rest of the on-screen prompts/instructions. After this, the software is installed. The computer should reset itself or can be manually reset by holding down the power button twice.

HAVE A MAC G4 THAT I CAN'T INSTALL LEOPARD 10.5.6. HOW DO YOU INSTALL THE OS WITHOUT IT FALLING


Running Leopard on a box that old is not really the optimum thing to do. It's got 64 bit architecture and being a G4 is 32 bit, your box will not take advantage of the speed increase. As a matter of fact, and this is from experience... your machine will slow to a crawl. I wouldn't stick an OS newer than Panther on a box that old. Even Tiger slowed it down to ungodly proportions.

Hi there.

If you don't have the installer disks that came with it when it was first bought, your only option is to a fresh install of a new operating system, leopard or tiger maybe depending on what your ibook can take. If neither of the two can be installed in your ibook (due to technical requirements) , finding a copy of the original OS wont be easy.


Thank you!

Apple has a guide on resetting the administrator password here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=mac/10.4/en/mh655.html This one is for OS X 10.4 (Tiger) but the method is the same for newer versions. In older versions the only difference is that the reset password option mentioned in step 3 is located in the installer menu instead of the utilities menu.

Cant find the disc on my powerbook g4


STart up your G4 using the OS disc for leopard, but instead of reinstalling the system, go to the menu at the top of the screen and Launch Disk Utility.
You may need to remount your hard drive. The disk utitliy can do this for you. Then it should appear in the disk utillity window. Then you should be able to install the OS and away you go!

You can't. You need the installation disk or a retail OS installation disk to perform this task. Full instructions can be found at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1274

OK
Sounds like a system error. The only way round this is usually to start up from your original OS disk.

You have quite an old mac (relatively speaking) and sounds like you are running OS 10.4?

Try starting up from the disk. You should then be able to see your drive. If you can see the hard drive you might back up important files now (if you can connect a external hard drive) The first thing is to try and repair the OS on your drive with the apple disk utility on the disk. You'll find that in the drop down menu. If it cannot repair you will have to re-install the OS. Archive the old system and install a new one. A clean install is usually better. Then get all the updates.

With your machine you will be limited as to what OS you can put on it.

Hi John
Can be because of a couple of things. Normally it is a system error.

If you boot your mac up from your original OS installation disk you might be able to repair the fault with apples disk utility.

Failing that you'll have to re-install the OS.
