will these work?
No you need a set of discs that say G4 cube. OS 9.1 retail or higher will work also.
thanks. i just realized that G4 cube probably shipped with 0S 9 so I will be looking for 9.1 retail then. does this mean it will boot retail OS 9 cd with all the drivers etc. ?
so after that I'll probably look for 10.4 to have dual booting in Classic OS/OS X. So that means OS9 partition shouldnt be larger than 7GB or does that apply only for older Macs?
Cube restore discs say "Power Machintosh G4" on them because the Cube is a PowerMac G4. Use this page to determine the correct part number you need: http://www.welovemacs.com/6912701a.html
thanks. ok so if i get boxed OS9 retail version, I can use it to do clean isntall on Cube?
thats ridiculous. 200 USD?
My discs say G4 cube not powermac G4.
yeah i figured they're not probably the right ones. but its confusing because there were TWO powermacs G4 - the tower and the cube...
My Cube discs say "Power Machintosh G4" on them. Any 9.1, 9.2, or 9.2.1 retail disc can be used to install OS 9 onto a Cube.
now Im really confused someone says I need restore discs labeled "G4 Cube" then you say it's possible with "Power Macintosh G4" disks. Are you sure, have you tried it?
Yeah I know about retail disks - they should work too.
They have the same part number, just different names on the disc.
I have the Cube hardware test CD if you are interested.
