    Hi All,

    I have a sunflower imac g4 that I'm trying to install 10.4 onto, but I can't boot from the install CD's. I held 'option' down at startup and the only startup disk it sees is my hard drive and not the installation CD. However, superdrive works, I can see the contents of the install CD and it still plays DVD's, music, etc!

    I have tried changing the startup disk to the CD but that doesn't work either. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can install 10.4?

    Cheers,
    ScKaSx

    What kind of install disks are they? Where did they come from?

    The install disks are for Tiger OSX 10.4

    Purchased from Apple as an upgrade for the iMac G4 (2003)
