10.3: Fix broken Panther with Jaguar
Authored by: wgscott on Nov 13, '03 05:26:17PM

After 3 successful upgrades, I tried to upgrade my G4 and lost 2 days of my life.

I never succeeded in getting 10.3 to install. Finally, I took my trusty clone of the 10.2.8 system that I had previously prepared with carbon copy cloner on an external drive, booted another machine from that drive, used that G4 to install 10.3, and then cloned back to the refractory machine. Now it works.

Moral: Make a bootable clone backup before you do anything. It can save your neck in many different ways.

When you say 'cloned back to the refractory machine' does this mean you were able to upgrade your external clone drive from 10.2.8 to 10.3 (preserving all data on it), and then ccclone that back to your internal system drive, and have it work?
