    Question Mac OS X Tiger CD4 how to burn?
    Hi guys!

    First of all sorry for my english, I'm from Poland.

    I'm owner of early 2005 Mac Mini [PPC]. Now I'm running on old 10.3.9 (I have DVD with 10.3.7). I want change it on Mac OS X Tiger (10.4). I had a lot of files with OS Tiger but no one works. Yesterday I found on polish website Mac OS X Tiger PPC on 4CDs. First CD is in *.iso format, 2nd, 3rd and 4th CD is *.zip. After unzip (I unziped this on my Mac) i have folder named like this "Mac OS X Install Disc [number of disc]" in every folder are two files. First: Mac OS X Install Disc [number of disc].bin and the second one Mac OS X Install Disc [number of disc].cue. *.cue file is about 1kb and *.bin file is about 649Mb (4th one have moer than 200Mb.)

    OK. I mouted and installed first disc without any problems. Next one are really wierd. I have tried:
    -burn *.zip files
    -burn only *.bin and *.cue

    And it doesn't work. After instalation first CD, Mac was restarted, then installator asked for another CD. And nothing work.

    It is possible to change *.zip to *.iso? Or maybe it won't be work.

    I need your help, what should I do to install Mac OS X Tiger PPC? I have only Mac Mini and laptop with Windows 7.

    Thanks for all reply.

    That is piracy even in Polish. Go out and buy a set of Tiger discs.

    No help here andy your thread will probably be slammed as no one likes theft.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Definitely need to get your own legitimate copy of OS X. There is no help here with illegal copies.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
