10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive
Authored by: liamq on Apr 13, '12 05:33:57AM

hello there.

Great hint here really helpful. i have successfully done this on two of the imacs at work. however I am having trouble doing this on my mac pro G5

I have started up, same as the others, wrote down the tree, which is only slightly different, devalias the disk and the ud:3,\ which brought up a bit of info, exactly the same as the others so looks good. BUT when i then do the dir ud:3,\system\library\coreservices bit my G5 crashes! it does nothing and i can't do anything. really annoying as this is the one that is most in need of a good clean!

anyone know what might be the problem or experienced this themselves?

Thanks
