frown Can Anyone tell me a way to put mac os x on a PM 6500? Yes, I have looked at XPostFacto and it will not work with this system.

Thanks

Well, according to OWC, this is what they had to say...

Unsupported, but in progress. The main problem is that SCSI and Ethernet are not working, which makes installation difficult. Also, will not work with Mac OS X 10.3 or later, because of 603 CPU.

back in 98 I had a 6400 and loved it. 

but..  even if you got x running it would be very very very slow.

I recently bought a B&W G3 on ebay for 20 bucks.  it will support osx without xpostfacto.  the B&W G3 is supported with tiger and it runs quite well on mine.  I have a 350 that I overclocked to 400.

something to think about..  use the 6500 as a classic machine.
