Hi guys,

I am new to Macs and just looking for help. I recently bought an eMac G4 700Mhz, 256MB RAm 40GB HDD off ebay with no OS. Will Mac OS X 10.5 work on this emac. Anyone with links to get me started?

Thanks

Vicand

everymac.com has basic info on the model such as max os.

Maximum supported OS is 10.4.11, as 10.5 has a minimum requirement of an 867MHz G4.

Here's a link to that model on LowEndMac.com (http://www.lowendmac.com/imacs/emac-2002-700-800-mhz.html), which gives a bit more info and some helpful links.

However, while 10.5 cannot be directly installed, there is a solution in a piece of software called LeopardAssist. This does require an OS to be installed already however, so I think youre out of luck.
