February 8th 2014-Yesterday I bought the computer of my dreams. Legitimately. When I was going into highschool I want a MacPro G5 tower. Damn it was a beauty, but it cost $2,000. And yesterday after being tweeted at, I was informed there was a surplus sale, and I was went to see what was happening. And I saw macpros for 50 bucks and I got one, figuring the case it worth it at the least, and here is the restoration process. So I torrented 10.5 yesterday, and threw it on a USB since my macbook doesn’t burn dvds anymore. Of course since the computer isn’t imaged currently and “you can’t install from a USB on OS 9.” I’m not sure what the game plan is, so I just started the torrent of OS 9. I can’t get the disk drive open on the computer, which would be a huge issue. after booting into command prompt, cmd+alt o+f and then typing eject cd it works. However it makes me miss a really good fight in the LCS. Alright I tried to convert the NRG file to an ISO and it killed my USB drive scanned my computer and it wasn’t a virus, so I don’t know what else to do. Downloading some ISO files of it, one torrent and one normal download, and as long as it’s smaller than 5gbs I’ll be fine. But it’ll take a few hours. One of my downloads is done, but it’s a .toast file, which is weird to me. Finally figured out my plan and then my USB got corrupted and so I can’t transfer my os 9 file over to get burned. joy. Apparently I lost like 6 of my flash drives, including my hack drives, and only found one of them. Alright booted cmdaltof again, and did dev / ls we’ll see how this goes.
- Gave up.
Using my last USB i’m going to install 10.5 on there and then try a method I just looked up. I’ll do this tomorrow.
Alright so now I have been booting and following from the guide i had. However I’m running into issues, so we’ll see how this goes.
Torrented a new os X and formatted my last Zip drive for it. And then after that, we’ll see how it goes.
