firstly there is no such thing as a dual processor powerbook, so you must mean powermac, and what happens when you try to install it? does it not read the disk, does it quit the installer? what happens?clashbakk8 said:Okay, my cousin has a Powerbook G4 Dual Processor, and he just purchased Tiger, and it's not installing. Any advice on this issue?
Its a burned copy of Tiger or a copy of Tiger that came from a PowerMac G5 - these won't work. They have special coding so that you can't just install it on whatever you want.
Actually I do know #1 for a fact, how so? When we got new G5's at my school, we tried to install it on my teacher's Powerbook G4, when it went to install it on the hard drive, it told him it could not install because of an error. He then ordered Tiger and when he received it, it installed. The G5 CD's (system restore CD's) have a special encoding on them so that no one can just take and install.Inspector Lee said:try repairing permissions. If this doesn't work you'll have to do a clean install so back everything up. I just dealt with this 2 weeks ago with a TiBook.
All is well now...
But this is if the following is not true:
Yes. It has been this way since 10.2 i believe.slooksterPSV said:The G5 CD's (system restore CD's) have a special encoding on them so that no one can just take and install.
