I installed an updated for an airport something this morning. After I was prompted to restart it know goes into a white screen with an apple logo and a spining circle (the circle is not colorful). How can I resort to a previous version? I have tried to go into safe mode, holding the c, removing everything for 30 seconds and nothing.

Thanks for your reply, I figured something like that. Also what would you suggest. The original OSX is 10.3, for which I don't have the disk, but I was thinking of getting 10.5 Leopard. (Highest OSX I can run on this G5). Would it help if I used a different OSX disk or do I need the actual OSX installed. Please advise! Thanks

You can use a Leopard disk if you can find a retail version. (Black disk not gray) The model specific version of Leopard will not work.

I am using Transmac Utility to burn a retail version of 10.5.4 The issue I been running into is that the .DMG file is to long, even though it's 7GB it won't burn. I found in another forum to use DL disks. Would you be familiar with this? Thanks

You can pick up a retail copy of 10.5 from eBay or similar.
