    So I'm trying to install OS X on a blank drive. Can I use GUID partitioning or must I use Apple partitioning?

    Thanks.

    On the G4, the regular HFS+ (Journaled) will work. GUID is specifically for Intel Macs' bootable drives.

    Using GUID will not be bootable on a PB G4

    Okay. Well I used the Apple Partition; it's too bad GUID won't work.

    Thanks guys.
