Picked up a 1st gen, that was literally an elderly man's digital picture album machine. The thing was barely used, but he'd screwed it all up trying to install 10.6 onto it. Thanks for the CD set, it was great putting it back to 10.2, and getting classic up and running to enjoy all the 68000 goodness @ G5 speeds!

gr8. btw I love Atari model 800, using emulation now.

The AHT v2.1 is what I wanted here and I was extra bummed that after 3 GB dl it wasn't there. I have assembled these dl fragments and got the AHT v2.1 which turns out to run better on my MDD2003, better than the AHT v2.0.2 it came with. This finally reports my G5 grfx card correctly.

@SkyCapt- looks like you caught me on a bad day, judging by the tone of my original reply. In any event, I'm glad a more complete set of images were posted...

@atarikee, please don't be upset. This is a common occurrence, all thanks to how Apple made their discs and their Disk Utility. Apple must have wanted it to be easy to rip their OS discs incompletely and then have it appear to function on some machines. Leopard DL DVD has a hidden partition over 400 MegaBytes, and when the Leo installer checks its own disc integrity it won't complain about the 400MB missing. Everyone should go into Terminal and after mounting an OSX disc or even just mounting an image, type "diskutil list" and mixed in with the large OSX software partition, at least one more partition is always there and sometimes a bunch of CD drivers too. I suspect lots of images are missing the driver partitions, which accounts for so many failed attempts to install any version of OSX by anybody. "sloppy copy" is my own pet codename for identifying this exact problem. The full copy routine is not explicit and this simple 'mistake' does not reflect poorly of you.

The AHT-deprived mega link is still up here.

As it was to a compromised copy, the link has been removed. Thanks for your research, here.

I'm used to seeing .cdr as writeable image files so I tend to not think of them as archive material. .dmg works and has an internal checksum. Tho now I see the .dmg wrapper morphs itself I'm not thrilled about that. You can copy a .dmg , compare copy and original are the same, then open the copy for the first time, compare again and the 2 files'll no longer be the same, some bit of user data is maintained and not at the head or tail, like in the middle belly of the .dmg file morphs, yuck.

But now @semv uploaded his fresh scan (in 4 pieces), he probably used Toast and got all the partitions. Making .dmg , whenever the left column of devices in OSX disc utility has more than one "tier", always probe the higher tiers (often with names like "Session One") because if it lets you make an image then it will capture hidden partitions. The AHT-deprived mega link is still up here.

This incomplete sloppy scan of the disc was made by selecting the bottom tier in OSX Disk Utility, the correct method should've been to select one row above "PowerMac Software".

May be it's the DVD/Master format (".cdr" image) which could be better for that instead of a ".dmg" image, isn't it ?

The download is bad. What we have here now, only a mega link to a 3.08GB .dmg.zip that unzips to a 3.25GB compressed .dmg - is incomplete and likely hazardous : use at your own risk. It's missing the hidden partition(s) including the AHT v2.1 . Apple had been harassing people at this time about disc copies, this could pretend to run at first and then have low level issues due to codeworm. This incomplete sloppy scan of the disc was made by selecting the bottom tier in OSX Disk Utility, the correct method should've been to select one row above "PowerMac Software".

Yep... the only DP 2.5 LCS that they released in the G5's entire lifetime was during the second generation run, along with air-cooled 1.8 and DP 2.0 models. A second LCS 2.5 was released in the final run, but that was a quad core machine. I got this particular disc with my June '04 DP 2.0, in a box meant for a 1st gen 1.6ghz model.

The 1st gens were discontinued June 9, 2004 with the release of the 2nd gens.
Minimum OS on the DP 2.5 was 10.3.4.

I assume my DP 2.5GHz liquid-cooled PowerMac will not be "1st gen" ?!
