Ok I have installed 3 macbooks with it and no real issues with the installs other then mail. I get to my 4th install on a g5 and form the install page
the screen goes gray our beach ball spins for 4 and a half hours then stops
and nothing. Do not I did not get to pick how I wanted it installed as was prompted in the other macs and did not pic a HD I was not worried about this being there is only one drive in the g5
So turned it off and then turned it on a Apple showed up and that was it for 30 mins other then noise out of the speakers. After waiting ages on the phone with apple When they picked up I was not at the computer they said to boot for them DVD buy turing on the computer and pressing C Well need less to say this has failed me.
Any Ideals and yes this is a family pack.

Did you install 3rd party ram? I had a similar issue with my MacBook and brought it to apple and they put in "apple" ram and it installed fine. I then spent 300 bucks on putting 2 gigs in it but I have no more issues.

this machine has nothing but apple products in it. and no software installed other then what it comes with. So I dont know what the issue is.

Ok guys and gals i am a total tool. after all this trouble guess how much ram is in the machine? yep not enough I could not believe there was only 256mb in the machine. This is the dumbest mistake. I put back in panther (never bother to upgrade that machine to tiger) and will get a gig and install again. Sorry for the trouble.

Good price for 2x1gb LINK, Dont really know the specs of your comp but hopefully these will work, they worked for my macbook, but that could be because of the x86 architecture. anyways yeah, 2 gigs you will love
