Question about Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for Mac
Been having problems with my mac forever. Decided to upgrade from 10.3.9 to 10.5. hoping to solve some of the problems. I put in the disk and it tells me it will not start up from the dvd, please check to be sure the disk is in the drive. I'm running an old external dvd drive. help...
Back-up anything you want to keep from the hard drive! With the computer running,insert the OS disc in the CD/DVDROM drive. Shut down the computer and power-up while holding down the "c" key on the keyboard. This should tell the computer to boot from the CDROM drive. Hopefully the installer will open. Eventually it should give you the option of doing an upgrade or a clean install. A clean install will format the hard drive and you will lose all data on that drive (the reason for backing-up).

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.
