G5 no Disks...
I need help. I just got a PPC G5 for free but it doesn't have a harddrive and didn't come with the factory disks. I have a 500GB HDD sitting around so I'll throw that in there, but what to do about the OS?
Can I image the drive from my imac running lepard or powerbook G4 running tiger to work on this tower?
I hate fan boys. should i hate you?

However, you can't use the original disks from the Powerbook or the Imac. They are machine specific. If you want a "clean" system installed on the G5, then you'll need to find the retail version disks for Tiger or Leopard.
