    Powerbook - can't load OS
    I have a Powerbook G4 867.

    I recently replaced my hard drive. I am trying to load the OS but I can't. I am using a Leopard install disk that I borrowed from a friend. I load the disk and while its starting up I hit -C to start from the disk. Eventually after a while I get a message saying the software cannot be installed. I even tried a tiger install disk and got the same message. How do I load the OS back to my hard Drive.

    Any and All help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    The gray disks are model specific, if u want Leopard you will need this;

    be careful as this may be Dual Layer - i am not sure.
    or this,
