Yes, it is possible. I managed to get a copy of Jas 10.4.8 and it installed without any problem. However, I made the mistake of clicking system update which ended up with a continuous loop reboot. Oh well, I want to try Leopard instead. So i'll let you guys know. If you know any drivers/tips let me know!

I managed to get Leopard to run on the laptop. But I need to enable some wifi going.


I have a blueNEXT BN-WD54G usb adapter which worked on tiger, but doesn't seem to be picked up on leopard depsite the software running.
