Hello did the way you speak on black screen shows no error starts normally but now he is catching on selection screen indiomasTry booting the install disc in verbose mode by holding the "command/Apple"-"V" keys after selecting the disc in the boot menu.
i.e. Hold down the "alt/option" key as soon as you boot the PowerBook, then after a bit click on the install disc, and as soon as you click the icon hold the "Command/apple" and "v" keys down until the Apple logo goes away and the screen turns black.
By doing this you may see any/all errors that might be causing the hang listed. Just make sure you read the lines quickly as they may list out fast.
Right, but it could of shown any errors it might of encountered.Verbose boot won't be able to solve that problem. Try holding down the shift key when starting your Powerbook. That will boot it into SafeBoot.
Are you using a BlueTooth mouse? try using just the trackpad, maybe it has issues with the mouse. Try to use the installer without pluging in the mouse.
Any errors it encountered during the verbose part of the boot would be and are ignored in the OP's case. His errors happen after WindowServer and loginwindow already start and cover up the verbose text.Right, but it could of shown any errors it might of encountered.
I no longer have the original CD bought it used, you can not a ISO of 10.4.11 not heave G5 to target disk?You didn't specify what model you have, but if it's the same as mine (2005), then you might need to find a tiger image that is already updated to 10.4.11 with correct drivers.
I'm guessing it's a driver that is not present in the older installer. When I used the older 2003 or 2004 G5 to install tiger onto this 1,67 PB with target disk mode, I remember I did all the software updates using the G5 before I let the PB resume normal boot into tiger on it's own.
You could maybe try to find a bundled CD/DVD that came with that computer, maybe the mac garden has something?
What disk are you trying to boot from? Is it a retail disk (that looks like this) or a "restore" disk from another Macintosh (that looks similar to this)?I no longer have the original CD bought it used, you can not a ISO of 10.4.11 not heave G5 to target disk?
what is mac garden
I do not have a wireless mouse, I'm using USB and tinker a bit mouse freezes the notebook.Right, but we're trying to rule out as many problems as possible. Might work, might not. Maybe the Wireless Mouse is causing the issue. Yay for troubleshooting.
Unfortunately not, can there be hardware defect?Do you have any other PowerPC Macs? You can boot the iBook into Firewire Target mode by holding down "T" and connect a Firewire cable to another Mac.
On the other Mac boot the CD/DVD and choose the Firewire drive that appears and install it to the iBook.
the macintosh garden is a place where you can download older apps and stuff for PPC and 68K macsI no longer have the original CD bought it used, you can not a ISO of 10.4.11 not heave G5 to target disk?

I told you why you can't boot that 2005 PB G4 into an older tiger version. I had the same issue.Unfortunately not, can there be hardware defect?
