    10.4 Install Problems on a Dual 450 Power PC G4
    I have a Dual 450 Power PC G4 with 896 MB of RAM running 10.3.9. I'm trying to upgrade to Tiger. When the system restarts it goes to a black/grey screen and nothing happens. It sounds/feels like the DVD drive is spinning but nothing happens.

    I have unplugged all USB and FireWire devices (other than the mouse and keyboard.

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    Is that a retail Tiger DVD?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    It sounds very much like what a System Disc from an Intel machine would do on a PPC machine. If it's retail, it should have the OS X logo on it and not a gray disk that says "System Disc 1" or something to that effect.
