    Hello everyone! First post....I'm getting a good deal on a used 12" G4 PB and I want to upgrade it to Tiger (please don't tell me to run Leopard, I don't want to). I seem to be having trouble finding a copy of this OS either new or used anywhere. Any suggestions?

    eBay or maybe the marketplace here. It's very difficult to find Tiger anymore :(

    Tiger has been EOL'd by Apple, so the only place will be used or old stock currently held by the resellers.

    FYI - No member <-> member sales outside of the Marketplace.

    Understood, just looking for a lead...I checked Marketplace first but since I'm new I couldn't post a WTB or anything like that.

    I know this is not really any help. I received my refurb MBP yesterday. It has Leopard on it, but the restore/install disks are tiger :eek:

    I actually found Tiger for sale at CompUSA which is going out of business.

    TIGER OSX software

    Actually, for the software ... you can just call 800-myapple and give them your serial number through technical support and they will send another replacement for that machine for $17! I just did that for two G5's.

    That's the very cheapest and it restores your ORIGINAL SYSTEM if that's what you are trying to do.

    Hope this helps.

    Call Apple Support

    Yes, Apple support will sell you the OS Tiger disk per the previous poster's comments. I called them, gave them my G4 Mac Mini s/n, CC#, address and done!
