    Hey all.

    My sister just recently bought a Mac mini and her harddrive faulted. So she lost the Tiger cd and also recently bought a iMac G5 for her office.

    However, when she tried to use the cd that came with the G5 to install Tiger, it gives a message like this application can not be installed on this computer.

    What gives?

    I don't know if apple still does this, but they used to make OEM cd's machine specific, and they couldn't be installed on a different type of machine.

    As noted above, the installer for the iMac is for the iMac and won't function on the mini.
