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?

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
