10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive
Authored by: shybear on Mar 02, '13 03:09:19PM

Great tutorial, with it I worked around for 2 hours but finally I was able to upgrade my G5 from Tiger to Leopard.
Maybe it could be a bit well described how to sort out the correct path tree when you're into Open firmware, but everything is really well described.
Don't be surprised if partition number may vary in my case it was 10 and at first I was thinking that I made something wrong, but it was correct.
Take care to write exact commands, because i.e. if you type wrong the USB path tree, it may give OK anyway but when you ask for DIR you get back an error, it drove me crazy and finally I found that I was writing pc@2 instead of pci@2 !!!!

Oh for people that arent' use an Apple keyboard to access Open firmware press: ALT + Windows key + O + F.
