I have tried everything i can think of to get 8.6 on my g4 tower. i have tried every system restore disc i can get my hands on , and every install disc i can download. i have burned like 10 discs lol. Nothing seems to work . The computer came with OS 9 on it and i put in an install disc with8.6 and clicked isntall. it installed just fine but when it reboots i get the dreaded flashing mac logo , ive tried hlding C and ive tried holding ALT on every disc that ive burned and nothing.
i am pretty sure its a sawtooth , as it came with DVI and it has a green expansion slot that is smaller than the other 4. But when i type in model number i get info on a "yikes" . With that said i have tried restore discs for both. nothing.
Here is some info on it : Model# - M5183 Serial# - XB1112UQKXS
Spec sticker: 533MHZ/128MB SDRAM/40GB HD/250 MB ZIP DRIVE/CD-RW /128 16MB/GIGABIT /KYBD/OS
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
