Hello everybody,

I've an computer with windows 7 and an powerbook G4. The powerbook doesn't have an OS, now I'll install Leopard 10.6 with an external hard drive(I can't with CD because my superdrive is broken). How can I install Leopard with an external hard drive. I already downloaded Leopard.

Best regards, iOneTwo.

You mean I must install Windows on the PB G4?
As far as I understood those instructions, it is to create a bootable Mac OS X installer inside Windows, an since you already have Windows installed on your Windows PC, I thought you could use that.
You can't install Windows on the PowerBook.
Do you have any friends with a Mac?

hmm .. you downloaded Leopard, which isn't available as a legal download.
we don't help with piracy here.

Besides 10.6 is Snow Leopard, which is Intel only and Powerbook is PPC
No version of Windows will directly install on PPC.

I got an idea. On my Windows PC I'll install Mac OS X and then I can use Disk Utility. Can I install Mac OS X so that when I boot my Windows PC I can choose from Windows and Mac OS.. you understand?
