Checking G5 RAM before installing OS: possible?
Just received 12 sticks of 512mb RAM from Crucial for our 3 x dual 2.5ghz's.
Is it possible to install these modules & see whether they're OK from the OS set-up or install disks without actually installing the OS itself?
I don't want to install the OS till we've got the new hard-drives in which are yet to arrive.
Anybody done something like this before?
Any help much appreciated...
Edit: Would it be possible to make a bootable system DVD with Carbon Copy Cloner on my G4 and use that to boot from and use System Profiler?
ps. I do have a brand-new external 320gb fire-wire drive which I may be able to use in the process, if I could boot from that...
