    good afternoon,

    I have been trying to install leopard on a 867MHz 640mb ram powerbook g4 for about a week. i have restored the dmg to a partition, i have run the installer and successfully installed leopard( green check and prompted to restart). upon restart, system only boots to apple screen with spinning wheel. i let it sit there for approx. an hour and no change. I reset pram and nvram as well as pmu... anyone have any clue as to what the problem is?

    Is this a legit copy? Why do you have it as a DMG?
    Try directly off DVD and see how it goes.

    So you and your cousin each paid half of the cost and your cousin has the DVD and installed it on his Mac and now you want to install the .dmg on your Mac? Sorry, but that fits the definition of piracy and you won't get help here.
