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. I searched MacUpdate, found a freeware called Slipy, with Slipy v1.3, I can customize a 10.3.9 install disc, but I can't find any alive download link for it. Anybody who got slipy v1.3, please send a copy to me. thanks ! Is there any method to install 10.3.9 on my g4 mini ? Thanks !
