    Hello to everyone in the forums

    I’m in need of your geniouses

    I own an Apple iBook G4 1.42Mhz 2005 model
    My first mistake was that I installed DebianPPC into the entire disk
    Debian cannot even open Google-> Photos
    Without taking my Cpu to the overload

    Right now I’m at work
    1st thing in the morning
    I’m uploading photos

    1) Is there a way to fix that ?
    2) Can I use Hachintosh 10.5.8 to re-install
    OSX 10.5.8
    3) Factory Reset is working with the Yaboot installed ?

    Thanks guys

    I don't think any Hackintosh install discs would work. Locate yourself a copy of the "Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Retail DVD", boot from it holding the C key and use Disk Utility to repartition the disk, clearing the yaboot partition in the process. Then reinstall Leopard and run the 10.5.8 updates over the Software Update mechanism.

    Macintoshgarden.org should have the disk image for 10.5.8.
