if you use a powermac to install tiger on an external disc, isn't it going to be for the PPC architecture making it irrelevant to a pc? or I am probably misunderstanding something here.

macgirl has a good hypothesis... since the files are universal on the dvd they might indeed copy to the mac as universal too... you never know until it is tried.

Please do post on here if the dual core Athlon works for you. I too have an AMD 64 3200+ and was thinking about getting one of the new dual core chips (2.0 GHZ 3200+ x2 core is only $330). If it works out, I may have more of an incentive to upgrade already.

I think this is basically correct in some ways. First, it does appear that Rosetta is installed on the PPC installation (although it should have no purpose as Rosetta is currently only PPC->x86, not x86->PPC). Second, some people working seem to have made some _limited_ progress creating installation for x86 by running the installer from a PPC environment.

These seem to be installations with "universal" elements, both PPC and x86 are being supported to some extent (even when there appears to be no point).

Me too.

I am creating an image of the installed Tiger external disk. Then I'll format/partition it with Darwin CD on the PC, then restore the image wit my PowerBook and see what happens.

everyone want's to scream fake. I have some screenies to prove it got into the installer from the Xiso disc i downloaded. I will post them before 9pm pst time (after office hours). I can't get the installer to go any farther. It hangs after i click "Agree" to terms before installation.


That's really funny, seeing as the bootimage of the XiSO disc is hardcoded to say EXACTLY what it says. It is not booting anything - just displaying text, which is ripped from PearPC, including the famous "SPIRO MULTIMAX 3000." Take your XiSO image, and put it on the shelf with your snake oils and other quakeries.


Ya its acually a emulated floppy bootimage.
