10.4: Install Tiger on older unsupported Macs
Authored by: blueberrytiger12 on Jul 28, '08 07:36:19PM

I just had a success with putting Tiger on a Blueberry iBook.

Blueberry iBook G3 300 MHz.
64 MB Ram soldered in, 512 MB in expansion slot
80 GB hard drive (upgraded, yes.)

A friend of mine actually had Tiger install in 4 CD-ROMS. He told me that he had taken the DVD's, and split the packages up into 4 CD-roms -- NOT sure how he did that, that's the only mystery to me.

Problem was that none of these CD-Rom's would even mount or get read on my iBook when inserted. (Because they were burned too quickly, I suppose.)
SO, knowing that I would have to burn new copies of the media ANYWAY, I followed the above procedure for disk 1, burning brand new media of all 4 disks, and I burned them at 4X on an iMac Intel running Tiger.

The installer ran beautifully on my iBook with NO issues :-)

Now for the impossible -- upgrade the video ram. 4MB is a *censored* for video performance. So is 800x600. Oh well. You can only do so much I suppose :-)
