Last Tiger I installed was 10.4.7 and setup does not ask for Disc 2 if you uncheck additional apps (iPhoto...), drivers etc.

Start up from the installer disk!
every time i start iMac i am starting from installer disk nr 1 then computer is loading and at the end message "insert disk2" and eject disk. Button cancel is blanc so i cannot cancel. THIS IS MY PROBLEM!!! Part of installation is in the system and i have no access to any functions. I am glad that you want help me i appreciate but i get stuck with this message. Regards

Find Leopard install, boot to its setup, go to disk util, erase disk/partition, and then go back to Tiger, and then uncheck anything other than OS.

My friend i totaly understand what you saying,but I CANNOT go to disk utilities and to erase and to uncheck BECAUSE even if i put tiger disk1 or leopard disk there is no reaction using keyboard, system is still trying continue previous installation ending with message "insert disk2" THIS IS MY BIGEST PROBLEM AT THE MOMENT!!!!! How i can boot without continue installation?what key i can use to stop this nonsense? Obviously on hard drive is a partial install. How i can get rid of that? Thanx

Then it looks like you have optical drive problem or two bad copies of OS X installer (Tiger and Leopard). There is no logical software reason why would EFI ignore your chosen boot disk.

Boot, hold cmd+option+P+R (PRAM), on second chime hold option key.

That should give you the startup manager to then select another OS disc.

Tiger 10.4.4

then you have bigger problems to deal with. keyboard or its interface is likely bad.
Hi, when i put inside disk with Windows just for test and press option key computer shows me boot option for Hard drive and CD (DVD) so i think optical drive and keyboard are working. I download few OS like leopard, Tiger etc but how i can burn them under windows to make them bootable in my Mac?please givive me some clue.Thank you

You'll have to have a look online really to find that, eBay generally has a few old discs floating around
