There are 2 ways. I can answer it best if you can tell me : Does the clamshell have a firewire port? Do you have a copy of OS X that is not INTEL?

I need to update my os x 10.4.11 to 10.5 were can i download 10.5


Sorry, you can't download it from Apple. They don't offer their older versions of the OS on line. If you check eBay, you will often find people selling older discs of the OS. Or perhaps you can network with your friends to find someone with a copy 10.5. Apple did produce 10.5 on a Disc. The name for that version was Leopard.
I just rummaged through my old software. I have a copy.
Contact me, maybe we can work something out.
I'm not sure how to do that via fixya.

I had this problem with a G3 ibook. All our other laptops and desktops were fine but the old G3 was left w/o a connection. I did install an older wifi router that was pre G3 type and put it in line with the other modem via an ethernet cable from the normal router e-net port to the internet e-net port on the older style router... now eveyone can access w/o issue. This may be the reason for your prob, too.

I am purchasing a gently used Apple/Mac-G3 **** Shell I-Book off E-Bay, but I want to up grade the hard drive as well as replace the battery, so it can be charged through the A/C adapter. Where are the...


on the clamshell iBook the battery is directly under the back edge of the computer. right in front of the hinges on the bottom side. The hard drive will be trickier to replace because you'll have to take the computer almost all the way apart. If the computer doesn't come with the disks, YES, you will need some. Those can also be found pretty cheaply on ebay.

Forgot admin password


From the Apple Support Forum for MacBook (yes, 3 generations later than yours.)
"With the original install discs that came with the MacBook, you can reset the administrator's password. Follow the instructions for "Resetting the original administrator account password" in this document: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1274"

Install new program


I take it that you just want to run 10.3 and no longer require OS9.
After starting from the OSX install disc, run Disc Utilities. Form there you can erase the hard drive. You should then be able to install OSX.

Hi Sahemric,

What OS is running on your system also, OS9 or OSX. I've got to wrack my brain to remember how to check in OS9 (it's been about 6yrs since I last used it) but in OSX it's very simple. Goto the apple symbol in the menu bar choose 'About this mac' then 'more info...' and in the left hand 'Contents' panel in the 'Network' section is 'AirPort Card'. Select that and if it says 'No information found' then you ain't got it! Otherwise it will give you the Make, model and settings.

If you have got one then the setup is different for each version of the OS so again I'd need that but that should get you part way there

All the best
Sean

The clamshell is 9 years out. The life of a hard drive under normal use is 4. Time to get a new machine? Does the clamshell have a firewire port?
