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/

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?

@ 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

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) ?

rusmuscat's picture

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?

bertyboy'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.

I love that this site exists. For real. I lost my Jaguar CDs and have been looking at torrent sites with no luck because there were no seeders. Thanks a lot!

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

Hello! Sorry I am a windows user. I would like to burn the OSX Tiger. There are 4 discs but how I can burn these files? Thank you.

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.

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

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.

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2016, August 15 - 12:39am

@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.

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).

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 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!

Thanks for this. I had 2 Clamshells lying around, which some friends wanted. They were old Tangerine models, I put on Jaguar and they run just fine. I've also used the Tiger disk on my iBook G4 and Jaguar again on my iMac G4, which runs very nicely unlike Tiger which lagged like hell (I have the first generation iMac G4, the 15" 700Mhz model) If I could rate this 1,000,000 stars, I'd do so.

Thank you very much for sharing this. I just downloaded the Panther install disks, and am looking forward to upgrade an old PowerMac G3 I bought for almost nothing as a "nostalgia" project. It had OS9.1 and went to 9.2.2, but now I'll do what I always wanted: to have a Mac with OSX Panther (you can relate from my nickname and user-pic that I love panthers). I'll share my experience when I'm done installing. Thanks again!

If you try to unpack it on Windows you'll get this error. OS X uses special Apple pixie dust to create zip files larger than 4GB which makes them incompatible with Windows zip tools.

If you're getting that error on a Mac maybe the download is corrupt.

I'm not sure if this is relevant or not, it's a bit out of my depth, anything to do with bash/Linux etc. is just the road to confusion and disaster at my house. But, this article promises to fix security holes in the Mac X 10.4 kernal, maybe, so making it still "safe to use" today. If I have got this wrong, just say so, I haven't made the mods to my Macs as I am not sure if what I read is genuine. For those that do know about these things, take a look here:

What platform and OS are you using?
The file was zipped with the Apple compress option in Tiger (10.4).

Make sure the download was complete. Should be about 6.6GB

Hi, thanks a lot for this wonderful and useful site. I've tried to download this Mac OS 10.5.1 DVD

Leopard 10_5_1.iso.zip, but I've got a problem to extract the zip. It says to me it can't extract. Should I rename the extension 's file or what? THX

Ok so I sussed it out. Turns out I was tired last night so my brain wasn't working. I didn't think to download stuffit to my macbook and create the disks there. All good. Thanks again for the files.

Download the files on the most modern OSX machine you have and download the free version of stuffit expander. Unstuff the files. If you don't have a version of Toast open Apple Disk Utility (in your Applications/Utilities folder), drag the file into the lower left window, select it and then hit the BURN button.

Hey there,

I hate being a noob but I've downloaded all the files for Jaguar as I'm updating a G3 iMac tray loader but I can't figure out how to make the boot discs. The .sit files don't load into disk utility in order to burn. Obviously they need to be unpacked by Stuffit. The iMac has very little space on it so unpacking there is slow. I'd like to make the discs on my current power book. Any chance of some guidance. Thanks
