Ive tried installing OS X 10.1 (Puma) on my iBook G3 a numbers of times to no avail. I have an original blueberry iBook. Ive seen many people successfully install os X on their BlueBerry so Im not sure what I am doing wrong. I did a clean install of OS 9 with the original restore disc. I then updated to 9.1 with the download from apples support site. I then did the firmware update. Everything in OS 9.1 works great. I put in the OS X Puma disc and it prompts me to restart so that the installation can begin. I get the "happy mac" icon for a long while and the cd drive just chugs away. Then the color wheel appears for while and the cd drive keeps on chugin. The cd drive starts to slow down a bit and the screen switches to the solid blue OS X color with the cursor frozen in the upper left corner of the screen. The CD drive then completely slows down and nothing happens... at all... ever. It just sits like that... its been sitting like that for a good 30 mins now, nothing happening, no hard drive movement (other than idle spin), no optical drive movement. Ive tried this several times now. The only thing I can do is hold the power button down to force shutdown. If I just let it restart it goes back into the OS X install then gives me an error that says the installation failed. If I boot back into OS 9 everything is peachy and I start the process over. (and yes Ive tried earlier with OS 9.2.2... same deal) What in the world am I doing wrong?
