    Hi,
    I have an old imac G5(the one w/out the iSight) and I need to restore it because I want to get it up and running. I don't have the 10.5 OS X install disk, but I was wondering if it was possible to restore it through Single-User Mode. Is the remotely possible?
    Thanks

    Apple still sells the Snow Leopard discs for $19.99(US).

    Snow Leopard does not run on PowerPC Macs.

    OP, why exactly do you need to do a restore?

    My 2005 white G5 imac died 2 years ago. It was the last G5 imac before Apple switched to Intel. It's sitting in my closet. Haven't tried to fix it. Before it died, it wouldn't even play HD videos on YouTube anymore without choking.
