    10.5.6 to 10.5.8
    I am putting a new hard drive in my Powerbook G4. As far as I understand that the newest OS X that it will accept is 10.5.8. If I install 10.5.6 on it then once installed I got to system update will I be able to update to 10.5.8?

    Make sure the install disc is a black full retail install DVD and not a model specific silver/grey disc as that will never install. Often updated versions, OS X.5.6 compared to OS X.5, are the silver grey discs.
    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!

    It is the black disk with the big x on it. And they were purchased after the computer. There are not disks that came with any computer.
