@rusmuscat

I suspect another kind of problem on your Mac. If any of the advices provided by me or MikeTomTom shouldn't works, then, you could try to boot on the DVD while holding "Command" & "v" keys. You should see some boot process lines on your screen. If you may note the lasts lines & report to us, this will be useful for helping you...

Also, I have two questions (looks trivial, but they could be important for us) :

1) On which machine are you burning your disks ?
2) Could you try to boot with these disks on another compatible Mac you own ?

Yes, you have a strange issue, but not specifically rare... I hope that me or Mike will find a final solution to solve this.

Hi, I just dload'd the 10th thing iMovie2.toast and found it is the OS9 version 2.0.1 not for OSX, probably not even for Classic Env so maybe it doesn't belong here. It already has its own page so this is redundant. I do have iMovie v2.1.0 for OSX, I don't see v2 for OSX anywhere on the garten. Apple made separate iMovie2 programs OS9 vs OSX (not a single carbon app), v2.1 for OSX .app dated March 21 2001.

MikeTomTom's picture

@rusmscat: There's a couple of things you could try:

1). Boot the Mac up with the DVD in the drive, while holding down the Alt/Option key on your keyboard. You should see icons for your current boot drive and the DVD, appear in roughly center of the screen (then release the Alt/Option key). Wait until the mouse cursor changes from a watch icon to an arrowhead, then click the DVD icon to select it, then click the button in the lower right of the screen (has a right-pointing arrow). This should boot up to the DVD (if it actually is a bootable CD/DVD).

2). With the Mac already booted up to the System on your HD, have the System install DVD mounted; Open "System Preferences" choose "Startup Disk". If the DVD has a bootable system on it, its name should appear in Startup Disk, if it's there, choose its name and click Restart. Hold the "C" key down as it reboots. Hopefully this will force the Mac to start up on the install DVD's System.

Step 1 should work. Try step 2 if it fails. HTH.

@MikeTomTom
Today I finally got around to trying to boot from the disk I burned as per your instructions.
And I got some really bizarre behavior. After the start up chime (holding down C) the optical drive does its thing, like it's trying to start up from the DVD, the grey screen appears with the spinning gear and then... the screen goes black and the PowerBook basically dies. Nothing, nada. You have to hold down the start up button for a long time until it gives the beep and starts up again. Once I ejected the DVD, it goes to starting up normally from the installed OS on the hard drive.
So the good news is that I have a computer with an OS Tiger that will allow me to access my old files under OS 9. The bad news is that I evidently have no bootable install disk for Tiger, should I ever need it again.

MikeTomTom's picture

first locked the unarchived .dmg then converted it to a .cdr format

@rusmuscat: Your 1st mistake?

There was no need to convert the .dmg to .cdr, and that process is likely what wrote to the image destroying it's "bootability".

You only needed to extract, then lock the .dmg - Then drag the locked .dmg into left-side list of the "Disk Utility's" window, select it's name in the list, then click the Burn button near the top of the Disk Utility's" window.

I have since DL'd "Tiger_4_6.dmg__0.zip" (from the US mirror, link) to test.
MD5 checksum: 8a4633d7747ab3689d981973719306be *Tiger_4_6.dmg__0.zip

I extracted the zip using the built-in OS X "Archive Utility.app" and immediately locked the .dmg once extracted. I also burned the .dmg as described above, using Disk Utility. My test Mac is a G4 iBook, which it boots up to without a problem.

Anyway, glad to see that you're getting somewhere via an alternative route.

rusmuscat's picture
by rusmuscat - 2017, March 29 - 2:11am

OK, now finally, a good report. While I couldn't get the OS X Installer on the .cdr disk to work the way it's supposed to (see my previous post), I was able to outfox it by going to System/Installation/Packages/ and clicking on the OSInstall.mpkg file. This launched the installation and after setting my Tiger partition as the startup disk, the computer launched into Tiger! Yay!
This little workaround -- clicking on OSInstall.mpkg -- is the most valuable piece of advice I've found... next to the Macintoshgarden website.
Thanks to everyone who tried to help!

I wish I had a good progress report to make. I re-burned the 10.4.6 system install disk according to instructions given below -- first locked the unarchived .dmg then converted it to a .cdr format, resulting in a 3.7 GB file.
Tried to boot from it. Same thing happens as before. If I try to boot from it, the boot fails and computer boots into Leopard instead.
If I then click on the Install OS X icon, and click the restart button, same thing happens -- computer restarts and boots into Leopard.
Perhaps what I really need is that original 10.4.2 OS that this computer came with pre-installed.
But why am I able to boot from 10.5.8 disk, and is it possible to get a 'universal' 10.4.x disk from the Macintosh Garden?

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2017, March 29 - 12:07am

@rusmuscat: If this model came with 10.4.2 pre-installed then you will need a bootable install that has 10.4.2 or newer. The 10.4.6 DVD image should be fine for this Mac. Do remember to lock the image as soon as you extract it from the archive and before you do anything else with it, such as mount it in the Finder, or burn it to DVD.

MacTouch's picture
by MacTouch - 2017, March 29 - 12:10am

If It comes with 10.4.2, so you cannot boot from a precedent version, as your machine was sold with the current system in the same time.

Now, I hope u will solve this issue soon. Smile

rusmuscat's picture
by rusmuscat - 2017, March 28 - 11:54pm

I looked up the serial number of my PBG4 and based on the lookup, mine is the 5,9 model (though the Info says hard disk capacity is only 93.16 GB), and this model came with 10.4.2 preinstalled. (I finally found a 10.3.2 disk -- also labeled Power Book G4, but it would not start up from that.) So now the task is to try and re-burn the downloaded Mac OS 10.4, using the various other hints provided on the forum.

MacTouch's picture
by MacTouch - 2017, March 28 - 12:40pm

@ rusmuscat

May be the disk image you are trying to burn cannot boot from the DVD for one good reason... I have noticed that this image appears very compressed. About 2.7 GB instead of 3.7 GB for normal disk. I am thinking that perhaps your DVD burned contains files compressed that cannot be read by your Mac. Could you try to convert the downloaded image into ".cdr" format before burning it ? If you are using Apple Disk Utility, when you drag the image on it (or open directly with), select the image, then click the "Convert" button (if not present, you can find it on the menus), name the file & select the "Master/DVD" format instead of "Compressed" format, then click the "Save" button. Let your Mac doing the job for a while. Remember that you need large blank space for this operation. When it's finished, try to burn the new ".cdr" image of Tiger on a DVD disk. And try to boot your Mac with it. Let us know if this procedure works for you. Thanks.

Ah, the 100GB disk model is 5.7, the 120GB disk model is 5.9 - http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g4/index-powerbook-g4.html

If it really is 5.7,
10.4 should be good, without 10.3 first.
If it is 5.9,
we need to find a suitable version of 10.4.x. We might be able to make an educated guess at your minimum version of 10.4 from the manufacture date, from the first 6 or so digits of the serial on the PBG4. Or you can look it up on everymac also - http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/

rusmuscat's picture
by rusmuscat - 2017, March 28 - 6:29am

It's definitely the 17-inch model with the 100GB hard disk, not the 120GB. Model 5.9, I think (the computer's at the office right now, and I'm writing this from home, so I can't provide more info.). I bought it used, less than a year old, and I can't believe I would have bought it without the system disks, but that was over 10 years ago, so anything's possible Smile Come to think of it, it could have come with Panther. Here I've been looking for Tiger install disks, and I've got a bunch of them sitting on the shelf from various machines... but not this one!
Thanks for all the tips. If I burn a 'locked' 10.4 install disk, will it install, or do I have to get the Panther first, and then upgrade to Tiger?

MacTouch's picture
by MacTouch - 2017, March 26 - 4:36pm

@ rusmuscat

Well, the "circle symbol" means that the DVD is bootable, but, probably, not compatible with your machine. So, I think you're ok in burning the disc. The problem is, may be, in your hardware configuration. So, as Bertyboy suggests it, can you describe it in detail just for us ? This will help us to give you the suitable(s) advice(s). Thanks.

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2017, March 26 - 10:32am

I got a grey screen with a circle and a line through it. What does that mean? I would seem that there's some kind of problem A) with the OS 10.4 dmg on your site; B) with the way I burned the DVD from the download.

As soon as you extract the .dmg from the archive, check to make certain it is locked. If it isn't locked, lock it immediately. Start Disk Utility and drag the locked .dmg into the lower left pane of the Disk Utility window, to add it's name to the list of disk file names. Click its name to highlight it and click the Burn button. Insert a DVD to burn to, if requested.

If the .dmg you used wasn't locked before you burned it to DVD, discard it, its no longer usable as a boot disk image. Start over, as described above.

Presuming that you are trying to install on your 17" PBG4.
Which model is it ?
I have one of the second-to-last generation models, bought in London 2 days after they were announced, came with OSX 10.3.7 and a 100GB disk (now replaced with a 320GB disk).
Is yours the same ?
Or is it the last gen ? came with a 120GB disk, dual layer dvd burner, extra hi-def display, etc ? requires a minimum OSX 10.4.2 (at release) ?

Thanks for the response.

Here's my update. The Tiger install disk I burned from the .dmg I downloaded from your site mounts just fine, but the computer won't boot from it. Restarting from it just dumps me back into Leopard.

So I found this: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20051221125424195
As the article suggests, I found and ran the OSInstall.mpkg, the installation ran fine, and everything seemed to install OK. But...

...when I tried to boot from this new installation, I got a grey screen with a circle and a line through it. What does that mean? I would seem that there's some kind of problem A) with the OS 10.4 dmg on your site; B) with the way I burned the DVD from the download.

Any thoughts or hints?

MacTouch's picture

Hi,

May be you have to reinitialize the P-RAM, also called the zap-pram. Simply hold the "Command" + "Option" + "P" + "R" keys when you restart & wait for 3 or 4 scheme sounds. Then, try another attempt with the DVD of Tiger. Let us know if it works for you...

[EDIT] Also, if it doesn't works for you, you can try to boot directly on the DVD by hold the "c" key on startup to force your Mac to boot from it. If nothing works as expected, simply open system preferences, then "startup" to looking for the boot drives. Then, you have two options :

1. The Tiger DVD appears next to your actual boot drive. Just select it & click the "restart" button below. It must boot from it. If not, may be your DVD is corrupted or incorrect. So, read the second option...

2. The Tiger DVD doesn't appears on the "startup" window. The DVD has not been burned correctly or is corrupted. In this case, you have to burn another one. But, be careful, the disc must be "bootable" to work properly with your Mac. I can recommend you Toast. Choose a properly version for your system & especially a compatible with the drive you're using for burning.

Hang in there & if you need anothers advices, just ask us for it. Thanks.

Kind regards,
MacTouch

Howdy,
My trusty old PowerPC Tower died (suspect power supply), so I had to bring an old 17-inch PowerPC laptop out of mothballs because I need a computer that is OS9-capable (Classic is OK). I cannot find the original installation disks that came with this machine, but I do have a Leopard install disk. So I initialized my hard disk, partitioned it (just like I had on the tower) -- one for Leopard and one for Tiger, downloaded the Mac OS 10.4.6 DVD from this site and burned it onto a DVD.

Everything seems ready to reinstall Tiger with Classic, but whenever I click on the Install Mac OS icon on the 10.4 disk, I get the big grey X screen and a button that says RESTART to begin installation. When I hit restart, it tries momentarily to boot from the DVD but then changes its mind and boots into 10.5.8, and we're right back where we started from.

How can I simply get the Installer to install from the 10.4.6 disk without having to hit that Restart button?

Thanks for any insights.

Any G4 should be able to run Tiger although I recommend at least 512MB of RAM. 768MB seems to be the sweet spot. How much RAM so you have installed?
256MB is the "official" minimum requirement.

If you have the files as .toast files on a Windows machine download imgburn, change the extensions to ".iso" and try re-burning just Disk 1 and see if it boots.
http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/imgburn-250

Or if you can burn CDs on the G4 copy the .toast files to the G4 and download Toast 5.
http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/toast-5-titanium

If the disk is burned correctly it should show up in 9.2.2 with an "Install" icon inside the disk.

John The Hat's picture
by John The Hat - 2016, November 18 - 5:09pm

I am having trouble with these. Simply extracting (in linux) & renaming doesn't work. The install hangs, presumably because it has lost it's fork file. I Can't burn on the Mac (OS 9.2.2) because... there is NO disk utility. Not even on the disk & not on the original 9.1 disc either. Which is why I want to install Tiger, but I can't because.... And so on. I have access to Transmac on a windows box. How exactly do I burn the .toast files for Tiger ?

Hi Patrik!
For the four Tiger CDs you may use the free IMGBurn for Windows.
Unzip the files and rename them from .toast to .iso to have IMGBurn recognize them.

Whats are your plans for these CDs?
Just curiosity on my side. Smile

But dual layer +R on the Powerbooks is a different issue. Most of the G4 Aluminum Powerbooks I have encountered cannot read a burnt dual layer +R. When installing Leopard on those machines I usually have to use a full size external DVD drive.

Only the very earliest DVD-equipped Macs require a DVD-R. Most of the later ones (eMacs, iMac G4) will take a burned DVD+R disc just fine. Apple even switched to using dual DVD±R drives as their "SuperDrive" by the G5, they just didn't advertise the + side of it. (They also didn't advertise the RW side, either, they still just called it "DVD-R" on their marketing when "SuperDrive" wasn't sufficient. It was only when they started specifying Dual Layer support that they also acknowledged RW.)

on both El Cap and Sierra. Right clicking on the dmg shows the Burn to Disc command

Thanks Troyd. Its good to know that its still available. Tho my preference is for .iso and bin/cue when creating archives of CD/DVD media.

It's easy enough to convert dmgs to regular iso files for burning with other programs.

I've never been keen on using dmg as an archival format for discs anyway. Not when iso is universal and works just fine.

Troyd's picture
by Troyd - 2016, August 23 - 10:35pm

Well, I have just created a blank 100MB dmg on both El Cap and Sierra. Right clicking on the dmg shows the Burn to Disc command, so both are still there, if just a bit more hidden.

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2016, August 23 - 10:03pm

dmgs and the ability to burn them have been removed from the El Capitan version of Disk Utility.

Apple has a history of give and take. This will become an issue in regards to what to do with .dmg's created over the past 15 years and is reason enough to now discourage its use for archival purposes.

sfp1954's picture
by sfp1954 - 2016, August 23 - 5:31pm

I would also note that it looks like both the ability to create dmgs and the ability to burn them have been removed from the El Capitan version of Disk Utility.

Correct, the MG downloads are the same as those on Mega, just did a download and upload

Just drop it into the lower left corner and hit the burn button.

That was exactly what I needed to do! Thank you.

I didn't destroy yet another dual layer DVD - phew!

The copy is the one from here (I can't use Mega), but I believe its just a direct copy DL'd from Mega and added to the MG archive. And it is OK Smile

I always use OSX Disk Utility to burn dmgs.
Just drop it into the lower left corner and hit the burn button.

Are you downloading my copy on Mega or the copy here at MacGarden?

Has anyone managed to build a bootable DVD from the Leopard 10.5.4 .dmg? I'm getting nowhere with DVD's and this image.

Bump...

Has anyone managed to build a bootable DVD from the Leopard 10.5.4 .dmg? I'm getting nowhere with DVD's and this image.

That is, I can burn it OK to DVD using Toast on a Mac and ImgBurn on Windows. The resulting DVD looks like its OK, Startup Disk in Sys Prefs shows it as a disk with an OS, but it fails to boot - and making coasters with DL media isn't something I want to continue doing.

@fogWraith: Thanks for adding the 10.5.4 dmg to the internal archive. I'm guessing that the erroneous reported 4GB size is due to a limitation for (standard) zip file sizes (4GB) so the upload module cannot read into the archive beyond 4GB, - dunno, just maybe. - anyhow I see that you've sorted it.

Interesting, as there was little reason to use .zip for this .dmg as it contains mostly compressed .pkg files. The uncompressed 10.5.4 dmg is 6.9 GB, and zipped it is 6.88 GB, a saving of 0.02 GB - demanding approx 14 GB disk space for DL and decompression... and the 10.5.8 update, saved approx. 3.8 MB in file size using zip compression before uploading.

If the Mac OS 10.5.4 DVD shows in the list as 4Gb in size, that's a bug I have to sort out.
It's actually the correct size for downloading

Thanks for the addition, fogWraith. No rush on my part for the larger item.

The 10.5.4 DVD image is slightly larger than allowed, I'll sort this out during the next service restart on Friday, until then I have attached the 10.4.6 DVD

Mac OS 10.4.6 DVD - Tiger_4_6.dmg.zip (Mega)
Mac OS 10.5.4 DVD - Leopard_10_5_4.dmg.zip (Mega)
Mac OS 10.5.8 Update - Leopard_10_5_8_Up.dmg.zip (Mega)

With the MG's increased upload storage capacity (6+ GBs per item) these can all now be hosted here. If someone would like to do the honors (I have problems accessing Mega).

Not overly. If someone splits the large OS X page into multiple pages, then the page will take less time to load.

I enjoy Panther (I had it on my iBook from 2000) but it is spread out into 3 CDs, and my laptop doesn't have a CD burner. So, I use it in PearPC.

Thanks, couldn't boot the Jaguar CD on any computer, kept getting exit code 0 and a black screen. Loaded up panther just fine and this did the trick to install jaguar on a 900 MHZ iBook!

Thanks for preserving all the operating systems and the individual updates.
This page will generate some traffic on the server once QEMU covers more and more of these.
I wish we had all the matching Xcode releases as well on its own page - and iWork and iWhatEver...

I succeeded to Install Jaguar on PowerBook6,2 (AlBook G4 12-inch 1-GHz DVI). I thought my only options were: find compatible 10.2.7 restore disc, or copy a updated (to 10.2.8) installation from a different Mac. Yesterday I read, OS X can be installed from a different OS X Installer.app. Yes, OS X can be installed without booting from Install Disc, and so can OS X Combined Update. And, by using a newer OS X Install Disc which provides a live workable environment (By "workable envirenment", I mean Terminal.app, which is found in Tiger and Leopard bootable Install Disc. Panther and earlier confine operator to GUI install process.), one does not need a newer OS X already installed (from which to work). In my situation (PowerBook6,2 which can boot Panther 10.3.0), I installed Jaguar 10.2.0 from Panther, simply by opening Jaguar's OSInstall.mpkg, followed with MacOSXUpdateCombo10.2.8.pkg. If I did not have Panther or other OS X installed to work in, then I can:

boot from Tiger Install Disc, open Terminal.app, run hdiutil attach Jaguar_Disc1.toast, run /Applications/Utilities/Installer.app/Contents/MacOS/Installer /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ Disc\ 1/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg, run /Applications/Utilities/Installer.app/Contents/MacOS/Installer /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Combined\ Update/MacOSXUpdateCombo10.2.8.pkg

Suppose I had the next model AlBook G4, which does run Panther, though not 10.3.0. I could go through similar steps to install Panther. And if I had a late PowerPC Mac which shipped with some version of Tiger, then I expect I could use a Leopard boot disc to install and update Tiger.

Thank you, sfp1954!

@tcalabazita: os9general.dmg contains a Classic system folder.

I installed a retail version of Tiger on an iMac G4 1.25GB (SN:QP3380FFPJG) and now I can't run OS 9 games for my toddler because it is looking for a system folder to run classic? Is there a link to a download on here? I don't have the original disks that it came with Sad
