Installing Classic on G5 PPC Tiger 10.4.11?
« on: October 02, 2017, 09:21:43 AM »
I have G5 specs:
Hardware Overview:

  Machine Name:   Power Mac G5
  Machine Model:   PowerMac11,2
  CPU Type:   PowerPC G5 (1.0)
  Number Of CPUs:   2
  CPU Speed:   2 GHz
  L2 Cache (per CPU):   1 MB
  Memory:   8 GB
  Bus Speed:   1 GHz
  Boot ROM Version:   5.2.7f1
  Serial Number:   CK5441FJR6U

Currently this machine is running Tiger 10.4.11

I need to run Canvas 3.5 and Minicad to convert files to be able to open on El Capitan.

I do not have a Classic (OS 9) system folder installed. What is most painless way of installing?

Am not a techie but can find my way around.

Many thanks.

Michael

No pain at all. Grab an OS9 System Folder and drag it to the HDD next to the Tiger System folder.
