Thread: 1Ghz PowerBook G4 Tiger Install Error

    Exclamation 1Ghz PowerBook G4 Tiger Install Error
    Hello, i've been able to install Tiger on many computers;
    a PowerMac G5, 2 PowerMac G4's, an iMac G5, an iBook G4, and a fairly new PowerBook G4. But most of those aren't mine, the computer i'm having a problem with is an old 1Ghz PowerBook G4 Titanium.

    It's running 10.3.9 and its completely updated. Whenever I try installing Tiger, it checks the Install DVD, which is normal, then it starts installing and it says "preparing/checking volume" or whatever, 5 minutes later it says
    "There were errors during the installation.

    It's not the disc's fault, as it works on other computers, i've tried with external cd/dvd drives, same thing happens.

    I use this computer a lot, and I need tiger. Help please!

    Have you tried using Disk Utility to completely format the drive (might even want to use the "Zero Drive" option) before attempting the installation?

    Do you drive a Civic, Del Sol, or Integra & want more power & tighter steering feel? Click here for my inexpensive DIY Power-Steering Removal Kits.

    i tried using disk utility to repair the disk permissions, but that didnt do anything.
    i dont want to completely format the drive, i just want to upgrade it, not reinstall it
