    After complete wipe, osx 10.3.7 refuses to install
    Hi,
    I know this is an old OS but I was doing a spring clean and wiped my powerbook to start afresh (it was acting buggy).

    After deleting the hard drive, I went to install from the OSx 10.3.7 disk supplied.

    It does not continue past:
    "GarageBand20Loops cannot be installed on this computer."
    This is the disk supplied with the powerbook and i dont understand why it wont install (Powerbook g4 15 inch, os version 10.3.7)

    Is there away to install selected items to get around this or fix this mess I have created.


    Thank you for any advice.
    E

    Did you Erase the drive prior to starting installation?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
