10.4: Install Tiger on a Lombard PowerBook G3
Authored by: earthsaver on May 03, '05 01:47:55PM

Target Disk Mode won't work as described to install Tiger on a Lombard because this computer didn't come with FireWire built in and (therefore) doesn't support TDM over FireWire; only SCSI.

10.4: Install Tiger on a Lombard PowerBook G3

Yes the G3 after, also with a bronze keyboard (was it Pismo?), was the first to have firewire, replacing the SCSI. I think it was the last one before the G4, maybe with a minor spec increase just before?

10.4: Install Tiger on a Lombard PowerBook G3
Authored by: mmeyer on May 29, '05 10:09:45AM

I successfully installed 10.4 on my Lombard, and it has been working fine now for a couple of days (it actually seems a little bit faster). To do it, I yanked the hard drive (which takes all of five minutes in the Lombard, and hooked it up to a G5 as an external firewire drive. Once the drive mounts, you can install 10.4 without any problems. Once the hard drive is reinstalled in the Lombard, everything boots up just fine.
