    I have a PowerPC G5 with 2 hard drives running Leopard. I upgraded to os 10.5.8, and when I shut down, the upgrade disappeared, as well as all of my games and their upgrades. The desktop was cleared of everything except drives.

    Is this a processor problem? I'm at my wits end with this machine! I bought it used, had to install a new hard drive, and have been battling problems ever since I got it.

    I might mention that the two hard drives each have Leopard installed and appear different when I open them. The games that I had on the desktop (minus their upgrades, like purchase info -*reverted to time trial) are on only one hardrive (not the startup).:

    It's cos you have 2 bootable hard drives with leopard on it. Go to preferences and select/set your startup disk.

    Hope that helps
