So, i'm trying to install OS X on this old G4 350Mhz (probably the earliest G4 Tower released on the market) which has always been used with os 8 or 9 before it was passed off to me. I go through the normal routine of simply restarting with a System disk: a good original cold version of OS X Jaguar (10.2) It finds the disk fine and proceeds to the startup screen with that spinning wheel and large apple logo. This is all it does... It never gets past this inital startup screen. The wheel will eventualy stop it's spinning and nothing else occurs. I take it the computer is locked up as it just sits there not computing as it should. (i don't think i'm being impatient... i give it a while) I've tried multiple diffrent OS X disks (others that come bundled with g4 powerbook, or emacs) but every disk has the same story. Wheel stops rotating and nothing else. I've even tried downloading a installed OS X system through a ethernet connection from one computer to another (selecting the system directories and files) This seemed to change the outcome a little: Instead of a wheel that eventually locks up and stops spinnning the wheel never stops turning ever... However the inital startup screen is still the end result. I've checked apple's support site and it says OS X works with all G4 computers. So i can't believe it's a incompatiblity. I need some help.
