    Exclamation New Hard Drive, trying to install OSX Tiger
    Hi

    I have a PowerMac G4 Digital Audio with [*] Dual 553Mhz CPU[*] DVD Drive[*] 768 mb Ram[*] 80GB Hard Drive

    I installed a new hard drive and got it formated in my hackintosh.So i put it inside my PowerMac G4 and got a Retail OSX Tiger PPC Version off the net.When i boot off it, it boots and goes to a White screen with a apple and a spinning circle.Which keeps spinning then stops.I'm sure that the DVD is working as i tried it on a Powerbook G4.

    Please help

    Tell us about the Tiger disc. Black or silver grey?

    Whilst we do not discuss hackintoshes here, actually how did you format the new drive? Formatted Mac OS Extended (Journalled)?

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
