    My G5 dual core (late 2005) is giving me real problems.

    I have tried all the basics, resetting PMU, PRAM etc. changing RAM but still the same Kerenel Panic on start up.

    I want to instal tiger from installation DVD, the hard drive on the G5 has been reformatted because it was showing errors and I thought that was the cause of the problem. Now i can't even boot form the DVD.

    here is what it says..

    many thanks

    What Install DVDs are you booting from? Is it a retail Tiger DVD? I'd try the original disks if you're not already. Looks to be freaking out because it doesn't know the mac model.
