10.4: Install Tiger on a Lombard PowerBook G3
Authored by: macman84 on May 03, '05 06:56:50PM

I was successfully able to run Tiger on a revision A iMac (over-clocked from 233MHz to 266MHz by yours truly) by putting its hard drive in my Cube and then putting it back into the iMac, no issues at all. Still makes quite the e-mail/solitaire machine for my mother. Additionally, I've discovered you can no longer execute the installer directly from /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg to install on an external drive.

10.4: Install Tiger on a Lombard PowerBook G3

I did the same thing with my iMac rev.C. I put my HD in a Quicksilver and installed Tiger from there. The iMac runs great, especially with a 500 MHz G4 in it. Anyway, built in firewire doesn't seem to be a real system requirement.

Grape iMac:
500 MHz G4
512 MB RAM
40 GB 7200 RPM HD
