Hi all- I received panther on saturday from the IT dept. at my school. We have a campus software agreement so I get a free copy of OS X and Office X, among other programs. Because of this, the panther cds that are distributed are burned copies (legally burned, mind). I tried to install Panther, and the first time, the computer said there was an error with the cd, and to remove it and clean it off, then try again. I did this 2 times, and got fed up. I decided to skip the CD verification process and just install the OS, when the OS got to about 80% installed, it said there was an error and prompted a restart. The computer wouldn't restart in OS X, and it appears that 10.3 was partially installed on my computer, but now it won't boot, except in classic (yay for not having the newest technology) Now I am kind of stuck... I only have 10.2 update cds and it won't let me step backwards from 10.3 to 10.2. I basically have to wait until I can get another copy of OS 10.3 I guess. Anyway- lesson learned, don't skip CD verification!
