Powerbook G4 OSX Install Problem...
I have a strange problem with my Al 15" 1.5 gHz Powerbook G4 that is baffling me.
Here's a run down of what happened...
The drive crashed a few days ago.
I ordered a new 160GB drive from iFixit.
Drive arrived, I installed it today.
I put in the OSX 10.5 DVD and did a system profiler: everything was OK!
I used disk utility and erased the disk, formatting it with MacOS Extended (Journaled)...
And then it happened--OSX won't install!
It gets anywhere between 60% and 100% done installing and gives an error reporting "MEDIA CORRUPTED INSTALLATION FAILED" It checks the DVD before installation and never has a problem.
I tried older OS's but the laptop will freeze or ignore those DVDs/CDs.
OSX Leopard's DVD still works and reports the system/laptop/new drive are all wonderful....
Is this just a problem with the OSX disk??
Did something awful possibly happen during the drive installation?
Any help? Anyone experience this before?
