10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive
Authored by: eduarddragunov on Jul 18, '12 10:10:33PM

Thank you so much, I am glad this popped right up on Google after a furious search for a solution to this problem. I've been so busy with work that I couldn't stomach the time or patience to search for the solution until an Arizona RX Energy drink and 2 hours later I finally stumbled across this god sent article. I would LOVE to make a video to help out those having problems with this tutorial and of course credit will be due! Whomever you are, I owe you many beers or whatever it is you like to eat or drink. Thanks again this is something everyone should definitely know for those working on some of the older G5's and G4's. I followed it exactly and it worked fine only difference is when I tried looking for the bootx it didn't find it at all but I still used the complete command and it worked as it should took some time rebooted itself and blamn! I thought I'd never see the installation screen!!! Used a 10.5.4 .dmg for the transfer onto the removable sata drive.

I forgot to mention I did this on a G5 with 1.6ghz and 512ram worked perfectly.
