My Leopard disc keeps ejecting on my PowerPC G5
Posted on 2010-09-21
I have a PowerPC G5 tower that I wish to upgrade. It's hardware specs are:
Dual Core 2.2 GHz PowerPC
8GB of RAM
The disc I am using is known to work on the following Macs with no issues:
Macbook 2007 Intel model
Imac G4 PowerPC
I have also tried another G5 with a single core 1.8 GHz PowerPC processor with 512MB of RAM with the same issues. It keeps ejecting the disc. I have tried multiple Leopard discs and the same issue keeps occuring. I know the DVD drives on these two G5's work as I can put in a Tiger installation DVD and it will work and regular CD's and DVDs work.
This is what I've tried thus far:
Booting into Safe Mode
Tried multiple discs
Targeted G5 machine but install usually fails (the only time I got target mode to work was when I pointed the G5 to my Intel Macbook but then it would only install the HDD as an intel partition).
I'm not sure what else to try here. Please help!
