    Hello
    I have an eMac connected to AOI machine at work and I need to do a clean OS install.

    Machine Model : eMAC
    CPU TYPE: PowerPC G4 (1.1)
    System Version: Mac OS X 10.3.4 (7L33)
    Kernel Version: Darwin 7.4.1


    Where can I download/buy the OS and what the freshest version this machine can support.
    All the drivers needed for eMac (in case there are not inside the os installation)
    Also where I can find proper step to do a fresh os installation.

    Thank you very much in advance

    If it is this model eMac - http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/emac/specs/emac_1.25.html - then Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) is the latest version that will run on it.
    You will need a retail DVD which is black in colour, as the grey ones are machine specific.
    Found on places like eBay.

    Hope this helps,

    Cheers :)

    Hugh
