Sorry for my poor english My old Macmini is M9687 G4 1.42G, because of some special usage, I need install panther on it, but the original restore disc is lost. The pre-installed version is 10.3.7, so I can't use panther retail disc (the retail version is lower than 10.3.7). I try to use pearpc to emulate a powerpc g3 hardware enviroment, install 10.3, upgrade to 10.3.9, then use disk utility to restore pearpc hdd image to external firewire hdd At last, I plug the firewire hdd in g4 mini, boot from it, but it gives me a error message: still waiting for root device. Is there any method to install 10.3.9 on my g4 mini ? Thanks !
