Loc: Finland, on the Arctic Circle
You're welcome. Sounds like a nice solution.<br><br>I was in Vernonia 94-95. Time flies, been now 13 years. I remember there being a couple snowfalls during this time of year back then, and well, it always seemed to rain Oregon. :P<br><br>
Alec,<br><br>I thought that the machine specific discs went away with the introduction of OS X, but I've never tested it. I've just had my head bitten off at the apple.com forums for suggesting that machine specific discs mattered with OS X... <br><br>Donna<br><br>
Here's the deal:<br><br>I found the disks that came with my iMac 2nd rev 17 inch iMac. It says they came with the Mac and not to be sold separately. So they are iMac 2nd rev specific.<br><br>Tiger 10.4<br><br>I don't have any disk with the eMac I bought.<br><br>Not that I want to, but if I wanted to Leo, which doesn't appear to be any machine specific, couldn't I do it?<br><br>What is a machine specific dis for?<br><br>I am afraid to try and install anything on the eMac for fear I'll end up in no man's land with ho working system.<br><br>
Any disks specifically for other Macs won't allow you to install the OS. They won't even boot completely, so there's no risk of screwing up. You'll need a retail box of an operating system in order to clean install on the eMac.<br><br>- alec -
