    Well the subject is sort of self explainatory but I really need cd burning support and i can't really find a program to do it besides toast which doesn't work in panther yet so i was wondering how i'd go about restoring jaguar
    Thanks

    Ummm, how did you install Panther (erase, archive, separate partition)? I don't really know of any way to "downgrade" without re-installing Jaguar from scratch...

    yep, this is why you dont install panther on your main sys. i didnt, panther screwed up, so i trashed it problem all gone. but i did do an update over jag on my powerbook and it has been running perfectly. ive only had problems with clean installs.

    Sorry. You took a risk, and now you have to deal with the consequences. At least you won't do this in the future again, or if you do, backup first or partition.

    :). Funny because it is true and because I thought the expression was "party" gifts for the longest time.

    Yeah same here, I always thought it meant things like party hats and those things you blow in to make noise, lol.

    that sounds like something my little sister would say...for the longest time she thought the shampoo VO5 was VOS and no one had the hart to correct her...then again she called thousand island dressing thousand miles per hour...she was an odd kid

    Duff-Man says....It's easy. Re-initialize your drive and restore from the backup you made right before installing a pre-beta operating system.....oh yeah!

    Man, some of you guys are merciless. This poor chap is looking for some honest help....

    That being said, you're up the proverbial river, my friend. Reformat away.

    that's why you always have three partitions: stable, classic, and preview release...
    or as of now: Jaguar, Classic, Panther.
    it really does work, been doing it sence X beta...and when the pr partition has no OS on it, it's extra space! just a thought...

    Heres a few suggestions:

    1. Burn all of your important files to CD. Ok, this may be hard without toast, but unless you wanna lose them, you may have to use some other software(can't OS X burn without 3rd party software?). Then reformat, and reinstall Jaguar, and put back the important files. You may want to record serial numbers on a piece of paper.

    2. Find someone else with a Mac(or use another one that you have), and Ethernet/Airport your files to their computer. Reformat yours with Jaguar, and Ethernet/Airport the files back.

    3. Wait for Panther to come out officially.

    4. Reformat and delete everything.
