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

    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.

    Tiger 10.4.4

    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.

    then you have bigger problems to deal with. keyboard or its interface is likely bad.

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