10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive
Authored by: restless on Dec 07, '12 01:43:42PM

I'm on a powerbook 1.33 GHZ with a burned firewire and need to upgrade to leopard.

I am using an external USB drive 8 GB with only Leopard on it (partition 10)

I did a pram reset.

in OF my disk pattern is pci@f2000000/usb1b,1/disk@1

By "devalias"the above pattern corresponds to usb0

following the post to my case I get

dir usb0/disk@1:10,\System\Library\CoreServices fails ..

any help !?

thank you

Uhm... that's strange, did you try out also the guide of ruth gaudi? If nothing works, it could be cause of the powerbook... this guide is for a powermac and I dunno if it works on a powerbook, too. I don't own a powerbook so I can't try it out... I'm very sorry, ask google for how to upgrade a POWERBOOK to 10.5, I can't help you :(
