    This isn't possible because the G3 mac uses PPC processor not intel. This makes it impossible for you to change the OS to windows. To do this you need to purchase a newer mac (all of which now come with intel)

If your computer ejects the Mac OS X 10.4 Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.

    Margaux again...
    RE: connecting W98 to Mac 10.4 (as below)
    I'm using a Jaton USB ConNET hub.
    Win 98se drivers came with it, and I've used it successfully between two PC's, however now I need to bridge a PC and a Mac.

    I also have LAN but couldn't get the MAC to talk to the PC. The PC was working fine.

    Thank you.
    Kind Regards,
    Margaux.

How do eject disc from my mac os x


Every Mac that has an optical drive has an eject key on the keyboard. Pressing the eject key will eject a CD or DVD.

The eject key has this icon on it: ?

You can also right-click on the disk icon, then choose "Eject" from the pop-up menu.

You can also click once on the disk icon, then choose "Eject" from the File menu.

You can also drag the icon to the Trash icon in the dock.

The eject key will only eject CDs and DVDs, but all of the other methods described above will also unmount other media types, like a hard drive or flash drive connected via USB, FireWire, or Thunderbolt.

If you have another (mac) pc available, you can create a USB key with your MAC OSx install disk. Put it in a USB port, and reboot. If there is no hardware malfunction, it will start the installer, and you can try to 'fix' the installation.

The disk might not have a working OS on it.

It you have successfully run the disk utility the disk probably in full working order. I think that the OS on the disk is either missing, corrupt or not compatible with the computer you are running it on.

Hi, Went to the Mac store to upgrade to Snow Leopard and was told my OS was "way too Old to upgrade to Snow Leopard!" Sorry, I'm a numbskull when it comes to these things. Figured as long as...


Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the 10.6 Box Set.

System Requirements to run Snow Leopard:
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Snow Leopard Installation Instructions:
  1. Just insert the DVD in the optical drive.
  2. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key.
  3. You will be guided through the installation procedure and be prompted at one point to choose which install option you want.
  4. Once the Snow Leopard install is completed the Mac will restart itself.
  5. You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.
  6. Enjoy Snow Leopard on your Mac!

I just upgraded from os x 10.3.9 to os x10.5.6. Now on start up I get the grey screen with rotating wheel then a darker grey screen with message to reboot the computer. I can get no further.


Not a good sign but not the end of the world. Put the install disk into the Mac and hold down the option key (in a moment you'll see two disk icons appear) once you see the icons, click on the install DVD then up arrow in the circle.
When you get to the install screen click next thru the next couple of screens. You should see a menu bar at the top of your screen, click and hold on utilities then select Disk Utilities. When Disk Utilities is running on the left side of the window select your Hard drive (not the DVD) On the right hand side some new options should appear, Click on First Aid if not already selected then click Repair Disk Permissions.
When complete restart the machine normally (DVD should eject) If that does not fix it you'll need to try the install again.

I'm trying to open an installation package that was made for Mac OSx 10.5 but I have Mac OSx 10.4.1. is there any way to convert the file or something so I can open the file and install it on my computer?


If an Installation Package (not an application) is written with a 10.5 requirement, it will not install on anything other than 10.5. That does not mean for certain that the software won't run on 10.4, only that the developer put in a 10.5 requirement for the installation package.
Right click on the installation package and select "show package contents". Then open the "Contents" folder in there. There should be an "Archive" file in there, like "archive.pax.gz". See if you can open that. It should contain the actual software. I can't guarantee it will work on 10.4, but it might. If it doesn't, you'll really need to find a version built for 10.4

If your computer rejects the Mac OS X Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.

You might want to try loading the DVD on a second computer that is connected with a fire wire to the first computer.

Good luck.

#1, I assume you are installing this on a MAC computer... On a regular PC computer, this is technically not possible legally...

What version of OS X are you installing?
