Edit again: I did try to install from an external harddrive (firewire), but it still fails. I made a new post about it: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=79010
I'm trying to do this with an iBook G4 running Panther (10.3). I did the steps mentioned, since the iBook only has a combo drive, I have to burn it on my PC. I've tried converting the final image (I tried restoring the equivalent of burn.sparseimage to both a
new sparseimage, like it says in the guide, and to a dmg) to iso using the hdiutil convert
command, and I also tried with Converso!
, and then transfer it to my PC and burn it using ImgBurn.
However, the iBook can't boot from the DVD. I get the confused folder icon, or whatever you want to call it. Disk Utility claims the DVD is bootable though:
Any suggestions how to solve this problem? Since it's a PPC Mac, it can't boot from a USB HDD, otherwise I would do that. I don't have a FW enclousure.
Could it be Panther's Disk Utility that's the problem, or maybe the conversion from sparseimage/dmg to iso?
Edit: Hmm, my message keeps getting messed up. Letters disappear and line breaks get inserted randomly. I hope it's still readable.
