    Not sure of your question here.

    You want to replace the mac OS with XP?

    If that is the question your mac needs to have an intel processor, Boot Camp or Parallels installed.
    Boot Camp will let you boot up in XP.

    I am not fully uinderstanding the question? What I can take from it is you want to put XP on your G5 to replace the mac OSX operating system. Is this correct?

IMac G5's cannot run windows alone, but older software can be purchased like Virtual PC to run windows on that unit.

Hi I bought apple I mac G5 1.6mhz 80gb serial number W84457TKPP6 from eBay. I'm just wondering how I connect it to internet? Do I need dongle and if yes what do I buy? Thank you. Regards Alison.


apparently you can use a wi fi usb adapter

http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-WIRELESS-CARD-for-iMAC-MAC-Apple-Airport-G3-G4-G5-X-/130334850512

But suggest checking if the g5 has a wireless card installed in it first before buying a dongle.


you may have an airport extreme card but if it does not have one see link below
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201713

suggest asking an apple store for advice on the g5 Imac

this help link should show where the card should be installed in your G5

My Imac A1058 won't start up only the fans work


Never heard of before, though power there.

Guess, try holding the on/of switch in a little longer, some systems act as reboot/reinstall

I have an imac intel 17" which is kernel


If someone has looked at this issue and determined it to be a logic board problem then the only solution is to replace the entire logic board.

You can purchase them on usedmac.com here for $289:

Here are instructions on replacing the logic board yourself:

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
