    First, never throw a Mac away.. eBay it. Which OS are you trying to load? Will the iBook boot from the current OS or the CD/DVD?

Hi Tajjek,

Try booitng the Mac from the installation disc which was shipped with the machine,make sure to use the right disc( which was shipped with the machine). If the unit does not boots to the OS disc,then remove the internal hard drive and power on the machine if you get flashing question mark after start up boot chimme then it is issue with the internal hard drive. Please get backt to me with your observation if issue persists.

I can not install viber apple ibook g4.when ever i try to down load i am told the application viber can not supported by this architecture


Hi Christy,
Viber appears to work only with OSx 10.7 and up, which is not supported on an iBook.
When they say "viber can not supported by this architecture", they're referring to the iBook not having an Intel processor like the MacBooks do.
Hope this helps!

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.

Just repaired g3 ibook. Hard drive needs formatting, as it has xp loaded on it. Ibook starts up, boot tone, proceeds to load, then screen has a file in the center of screen with the osx finder square face...


With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.


If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.


Hope this helps, let me know what happens.

My iBook G4 continues to run slowly and/or freeze


Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.
