10.4: Install Tiger on older unsupported Macs
Authored by: markmhart on Mar 01, '06 03:10:32PM

I've got a beige g3 mt 333mhz 384MB Ram, and I have tried EVERYTHING to get Tiger installed. I use xpostfacto 4, I've modified OSInstall.dist and reburned the dvd, and I've tried running install.mpkg directly from the disk image. I've made many changes to the OSInstall.dist program; right now, the machine checker and the rom checker both just return true.

The last dual-layer cdrom I burned went WAY into the install cycle before telling me I can't install on my machine. One stupid question just popped into my head - do I have to have 10.3 installed to install 10.4? I've got 10.2.8 on the beige, and I assumed a full-install of 10.4 wouldn't care what OS I have installed.

Any ideas out there? I would really love to have 10.4 on my beige.
