    Hello everyone! First post....I'm getting a good deal on a used 12" G4 PB and I want to upgrade it to Tiger (please don't tell me to run Leopard, I don't want to). I seem to be having trouble finding a copy of this OS either new or used anywhere. Any suggestions?

    eBay or maybe the marketplace here. It's very difficult to find Tiger anymore :(

    Tiger has been EOL'd by Apple, so the only place will be used or old stock currently held by the resellers.

    FYI - No member <-> member sales outside of the Marketplace.

    Understood, just looking for a lead...I checked Marketplace first but since I'm new I couldn't post a WTB or anything like that.

    I know this is not really any help. I received my refurb MBP yesterday. It has Leopard on it, but the restore/install disks are tiger :eek:

    I actually found Tiger for sale at CompUSA which is going out of business.

    TIGER OSX software

    Actually, for the software ... you can just call 800-myapple and give them your serial number through technical support and they will send another replacement for that machine for $17! I just did that for two G5's.

    That's the very cheapest and it restores your ORIGINAL SYSTEM if that's what you are trying to do.

    Hope this helps.

    EMH:)

    Call Apple Support

    Yes, Apple support will sell you the OS Tiger disk per the previous poster's comments. I called them, gave them my G4 Mac Mini s/n, CC#, address and done!
