    Hello, I have just bought a used apple powerbook 15" g4 laptop, and upgraded the hard drive to 120gb. Now i need to put tiger on to the hard drive, is there any way of doing this without the original os disks?

    thank you

    Not really.. You could try cloning the previous drive to the new one but you would need to access both drives simultaneously..

    if you have access to an external hd, use superduper to image your install

    then put the new os in and simple use that image on your hd

    i think that would work. i dont know the specifics as i havent used that program

    edit: get an external case for your new hd like these for example (make sure it is compatible)

    and clone the image onto your new hd and go about it that way i believe
