I'm trying to install 10.5 on a 1 TB SATA hard drive destined for a G5 that is being used for audio production. Since the G5 is being used all weekend for production, I thought that I would get a head start. I put the 1 TB SATA drive in a USB 2.0 dock, connected to an old Dual G4. I ran a full surface scan (TechTool) to insure the integrity of the drive and it check out fine. I formatted the drive HFS+ Journaled with an Apple Partition Map (needed to boot PPC Macs.) The problem: 1. I boot Dual G4 from Apple 10.5 disc but it won't install on the 1 TB SATA Drive in the USB dock because PPC Macs can't boot from USB. Somewhat understandable, but it should just give a warning and let me continue in my opinion. 2. I change ideas, boot Intel-based Macbook off the Apple 10.5 disc. Now the OS won't install because an APM formatted drive cannot boot an Intel Mac. Any ideas on how to install 10.5 on this SATA drive with out a computer that can hook up to it natively? Anyway to bypass the installer restrictions? I'm trying to do this now so we don't have to waste all of Monday installing the OS and apps that I could be doing now. I'm wondering about Apple Remote Desktop, if that could do it or if its more trouble? Thanks for any advice.
