These are the German Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) Software Install and Restore DVDs for the original Power Mac G5 from 2003, Order Numbers M9020LL/A (1.6 GHz), M9031LL/A (1.8 GHz), M9032LL/A (2.0 GHz DP) and M9393LL/A (1.8 GHz DP "Late 2003"), Model ID PowerMac7,2, Model Number A1047. The very first batch has been shipped with Mac OS X 10.2.7 (G5) i.e. the special G5 version of Jaguar, which only works on the original Power Mac G5, not the later 2004 and 2005 models. These German DVDs however, with Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, will also work with the 2004 and Early 2005 models of the Power Macs G5 (with PPC970fx processors, but still with the PCI-X and AGP buses), amongst others. Panther will not work with the Late 2005 models (PPC970MP processors and PCI-Express bus).

While Mac OS X and included software is normally multi-language by design, the AHT included here is specifically in German language!

The discs were created under Mac OS X 10.3.9 using hdiutil in
hdiutil convert -format UDZO -o <.dmg-file> /dev/rdisk1

In order to use the discs you need a working Mac OS X. After downloading the .dmg disc images compare the SHA1 checksums by running openssl sha1 *.dmg in in the folder containing the images.

To get a working installation disc image simply mount D691-4680-A.dmg (double click) and use it as a source to burn a 1:1 copy on DVD. You may then boot from it to install a clean version Mac OS X Panther. An alternative is to restore the image onto an external drive like an external FireWire storage devices like a HDD or, for advanced users only: an external USB storage device. You may then use it to boot and install Panther by using the Open Firmware boot selection (hold down the Option key, also known as Alt key, at the chime; for USB entering the correct path from the Open Firmware prompt is required!).

Note however that there is nothing special about this version of Mac OS X 10.3. And there is no need to burn the disc images for installing just the bundled software: simply mount it (double click) and run the supplied installer. The bundled software on disc D691-4680-A.dmg will only install on Macs with the Model ID PowerMac7,2.

Apple Hardware Test

Burn the disc as described above or restore the partition containing AHT. For advanced users only. To find the correct partition, with the disc or image mounted run diskutil list in
