Create bootable Mac partition using Windows
Posted on 2008-06-09
I know that this is going to sound odd but....
I have a friend's Powerbook G4 15" 1.67MHz Aluminium that won't install Tiger from the DVDs that came with it. There is nothing on the hard drive so it won't boot from there either. The whys and wherefores as to why there is this problem would take a bit of time to explain.
I have the PB's 80Gb HDD inside my Windows Vista driven desktop. Using MacDrive, I have created and formatted (HFS+) two Mac partitions. I want to put an image of the Mac install disk onto one of the partitions and then, with the HDD back inside the PB, try and install the OS from the partition with the image onto the other and see if the PB will boot as normal.
Is there any way I could do this and how would I do it using my windows machine? I cannot use the PB for anything at the moment.
