Thread: Thinking of Tiger..
10-25-2005, 08:37 PM #1CubeStyleGuestThinking of Tiger..
So, I have a G4 Cube and am thinking of updating to Tiger.
I am currently at 10.2.8 which is the max for Jag, right?
My question is this, when I updated to Jag...OS9 was left on there but I never use it. If I update to Tiger am I correct in thinking that I will now have three operable OS's and killing alot of memory?
Also, is there a way to format my HD so that when I do upgrade, I don't have to keep going back to Jag to access them? Basically still having everything in iTunes, iPhoto, etc. in the same place?
Thanks in advance for the help and I apologize if it's an extremely dumb question...... :dummy:

When you upgrade, all you're doing is replacing Jag with Tiger. All your music, photos, manifestos, etc., will be in their respective places as before. Don't make the mistake that I did and think that OS 9 is on Tiger, because it's not. An upgrade will keep your OS 9, a 'erase and install' will remove your 9, never to be seen again.

The first thing that you need to do, is back up all of your data that is valuable to you. Once that is done then you have two choices in installing tiger. Either do an update install or and fresh install (clean disk first).Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
