So maybe someone here can help me maybe not. I'm trying to boot my ppc g5 off a usb which isn't supported and install 10.5 on my system. When booting my computer refuses to detect the USB drive. I've looked into it and from what I can gather usb booting isn't supported on my model. Anyone know how I can do this?

 

EDIT: also thanks for that sony link but they claim to have no knowledge of my dvd burner.

 

If it doesn't support booting an OS from a USB, then attempt to burn the .dmg onto a disc and install 10.5 from there.

 

 

 

**This may or may not work, since you said that it doesn't support USB booting. Try it anyways**

 

Make sure that the USB drive is formatted to what a OSX hard drive would be normally formatted to, Mac OS X Extended (Journaled), in order for it to be bootable and recognized as a bootable drive by your G5.
