    Can you install OSX Tiger 10.4 on MacBook Pro Retina (Early 2013)?

    No, and you cannot install Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard nor can you install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, as all those Mac OS X versions lack the drivers for 2012 Macs.

    You can however install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server as a VM.

    Why do you need or want to install Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger?

    No- it does not contain the necessary drivers to run you mac.
    Why do you want it anyways?

    Sorry I can't help with the technical question...but my curiosity is killing me!:p

    Do you mind my asking why you would want to install Tiger on a new MBP?:confused:

    Please don't take offense...I'm just curious.:D

    Edit: I'm a very slow typist!

    To be honest I still prefer Tiger over SL, up in the air on Lion. It was just a solid OS, though I certainly understand if you feel differently.
