    I am in need of a full retail dvd install disc for Tiger 10.4, I am running Panther 10.3.9 and the only upgrade I can get is 10.4 cause have a g4 1.25Ghz. As you know noone has them for under $150.00 cause it is so old. The only reason I want it is due to that safari's current version is not compatable w/mine for flash driven sites. I will deal with it if I cant find a install disc for about 40-60 bones. Does anyone know a computer repair place that will put the OS on it so I do not have to pay 200 for a 4 year old OS....Any suggestions would be great, I pay for all my apple stuff so torrant is not an option and would not trust it anyway........Thanks in advance, I do beleive I am just screwed though..LOL

    As much as I hate recommending the site I think you're only option will be eBay. There is a way to get 10.5 to install on "unapproved" Mac computers but I don't remember the process. Google will though (in other words I'm too lazy to look it up right now).

    A lot of 1.25 Ghz G4's can run 10.5, even though on some it may not be officially supported. Which Mac is it?

    Got to lowendmacs.com. They have links to vendors of obsolete software as well as howtos for install later versions of software on non-supported machines. They also have links to realistically priced hardware upgrades for many older Macs. IIRC, 10.5 is physically unable to support older video hardware when playing movies and such.
