Hello! I have a Graphite 300mhz iBook with 64mb ram that is running on Mac OS 9.0.2 . I am trying to upgrade it all the way to Panther, even though I know of my limited memory. My problem is that I will put in the 1st Panther CD and it will come up immediately. I will double click the installer and then the little picture comes up saying to restart my Mac to install X. I will press it and then it just restarts and ends up back to the 9 desktop with the OS X CD finder window up. So...Nothing. I have tried starting the CD up by holding "C" and it just gives me the little Mac with the Question mark for a few seconds and then boots to the 9 desktop. Now, I don't have 9.1 or higher obviously, and I know there is a firmware update, but that wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that the Panther disc won't come up? I even tried using my Powerbook discs, but those don't even show up! (Yes, I know you are not licensed to use those on other computers, just a test) So what now? Anyone care to take a shot?
