My problem :(
Authored by: MacOSXAddict on Nov 03, '03 12:53:47PM

I finally recieved my new G5 Dual, and used it for 2 weeks "as was" knowing that I would do a full format and clean install of Panther when it Arrived. I read through the "manual", and like others have said, it doesn't mention that Jaguar has to still be on the drive. Actually to the contrary they point out that if you want to re-partition the system disks, you should use the Disk Utility on the CD. I repartitioned the disk and formated as HFS+(journled) and lo and behold it refused to install. I had to re-install Jaguar from DVD and then install Panther full clean. Then only to find iDVD and Classic missing (I had to re-re-reinstall from the Jag disks).

But with all the problems over with, I have had no problems since. and there is a noticable speed inprovement over Jag. G5 Dual with 2.5 Gigs of ram, and Panther IS BY FAR the fastest personal computer on the planet....
