So I decided to take the plunge and upgrade my 466mhz G4 powermac from OS 9.1 to OS 10.2... I'd had the CDs for Jaguar for a couple of months but had been holding back on making the change. So I finally decided to go ahead and upgrade this afternoon. What a mistake that was! The first disc installed just fine... asked me to reboot and then it asked for disc 2. The installer got about 95% of the way through the second disc when it stopped doing anything. Just sat there.... it wasn't frozen... but the computer wasn't doing anything and the software on the second disc was never finished installing. I quit the installer and OS X seemed to be there. It looked okay to me. I rebooted and then tried to re-install the material on the second disc again, and it seemed to be okay. But something went terribly wrong! Internet Explorer, iMovie, iPhoto and iTunes don't seem to be there... the icon for IE is there but if I try to open the application I get an error. The icons for the the other programs aren't even on the dock... there are folders where they should be but the computer can't seem to find the programs. I also tried to install Norton Systemworks.... it actually installed fine... but the computer gives me errors. Oh, and "Classic" mode won't start up either. I tried using old versions of Netscape and IE that were on my computer prior to the upgrade but nothing happens. WTF is wrong with this thing? I can't do very with the computer in its current state! All of my files are there... I can open the quicktime stuff (quicktime seems to work just fine) but how am I supposed to do anything else??? I tried to re-install OS X using the CD but it won't let me. I have been very frustrated with my computer for quite some time and this is really getting irritating! Part of me just wants to buy a whole new system (but I can barely afford to do that... it's a last resort to be used only if necessary). Does anyone have any helpful hints or suggestions? I'm not exactly a Mac expert... I don't know the tricks of the trade. Problem-solving is not my thing.
