I just installed 10.4 on my sisters laptop. Its a 500Mhz with 640MB of ram and built in firewire. When it tries to boot is show an apple and just stays there, I get no error message at all. Any ideas?

I know someone who is about to try to install Tiger on an 800MHz with 640mb of ram, but his had some problems running panther smoothly so it could just be under spec for tiger.

I seem to remember Apple basically stated that a computer with built-in Firewire is supported for 10.4. Not sure if that's true across the board, but I think it's the case.

I tried putting 10.1 back on it and it wont even boot off the disk. It still boots off of the 10.4 DVD but it wont install right. Maybe some of the hardware needed a firmware update?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
