OS X 10.4 Tiger installation disks needed

Post by drchuck » Fri Nov 25, 2011 7:57 am

I traded my G4 Mac Mini another SMUG member and in order to get it ready, I "scrubbed" the hard drive with Disk Utility to erase any personal information that might be there. To my chagrin, the only disks I was given when I bought the G4 Mini used will not install. One is only an update disk and the rest are not what I need.

So, I need to borrow an OS X 10.4 Tiger install CD set or DVD long enough to get the Mini working again. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Chuck, I have some Tiger disks but cannot remember whether they are from scratch or upgrade disks such as you mention. You're welcome to try 'em.

Thanks, Jerry,

We will give them a try. When can we pick them up?
