Formatting drive of a powerbook G4 using CD of OS X for G5 and then re-installing OS X
Posted on 2009-03-29
I have a Powerbook G4 15 inch model.
The password for the SINGLE ADMIN user that was created at time OS 10.4.9 was installed is rejected.
Attempts to RESET a Password were not working since the CD I have does not bring you to that prompt.
Is there a way to format the drive of this Powerbook G4 which I do not have the original OS CD's ?
1. if yes, how
2. Will the OS X for G5 can be then used to re-install the OS on the Powerbook.
While this clearly is a dumb approach but I am not finding anyone who can respond effectively and do not want to spend 150.00 for an OS that I actually do not need. Currently the Powerbook G4 is configured with Auto-Login and all is working fine
Thansk for any help anyone can provide ????!!!!
