I have a G5 with 10.3 and recently bought Ilife 08 and found that I needed to upgrade my OS to Tiger or Leopard. I was contemplating purchsing Leopard when a friend loaned me a Tiger Disc.
But I have had no luck installing Tiger. On the simple install the machine's fans blow at max speed for over 45 minutes with nothing happening. In the custom install after about 15 minutes I get a Missing Bill of Materials error message.
On the regular install after a while it may come to a text screeen asking to boot-mac or shut-down. It also says some memory is missing
Yes I know I should buy a new copy of Leopard but will I have the same problem. Among some things I've tried is disconnecting all external USB and Firewire devices.
My CPU is a single processor G5 1.8 with 1 gig of Ram
