    Exclamation Tiger 10.4 Upgrade Installation Errors
    System:
    Ibook G3 with OS X 10.2 (Panther)
    640 MB RAM

    Task:
    Upgrading to OS X 10.4 (Tiger) with OS X Tiger install disks sent to me from Apple.

    Problem:
    Install seems to be working fine but then gives an error message.

    Error message:
    "There were Errors during the installation." "Please try again."

    Attempts:
    -Disk Repair with Disk Utility -> There were no errors.
    -Permissions Repair with Disk Utility -> Fixed some permissions, but still doesn't work.

    Symptoms:
    -When I try installing again, it always asks for disk 2 (unless I boot directly into disk 1 to try it all from the beginning)
    -I cannot boot back into the operating system. Even if I try starting up without the disks, it runs the installer and asks for disk 2.

    When did Apple send you the Tiger discs? They should not do that for a G3. If they are silver grey model specific discs from another computer they will never install. Sure sounds like they are as you talk about disc one and disc two.
    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!
