The other day I bought a nice iBook 466 graphite running OS 9.2 and it shipped in yesterday. I immediatly pulled out my 10.4 disc and went through the installer, and it forced me to erase the hard drive, which I did. Heres where the problem did, the ibook gets qnd error message every time i try to install panther or tiger, i suspect due to old firmware needing updates. It refuses to boot into my OS 9 disc so i was wondering if it would update firmware in OS 10.2, i have the disc but have not tried to install jaguar yet. Also, i was thinking maybe i could place the firmware file on the hard drive without an OS via firewire and then boot the command to update the firmware. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
