I recently bought a new dual 2.3Ghz g5 that came with Tiger pre-installed. I was wondering, If I had another internal hard drive (acting as a slave) with a version of panther already on it would my g5 be able to boot onto panther. Thanks

I disagree. Apple usually only supports the latest OS version on a new model. You can almost never boot a Mac with an OS older than the version that was included when they first shipped.

I doubt Panther would work on any of the current model G5s. I don't know of anyone who has tried it, though. If it does work, it would need a later rev of Panther, 10.3.9 at least. 10.3.0 would certainly not work.

why wouldnt it work? ASSUMING the only thing thats different is the speed of the CPUs and ram.

however it is like apple to not allow you to turn back.
