Hi every one,

 

So, When I both my I Mac it came with the Os Version 10.4.7 Dvd disk. About a months later the new version 10.5 came out, and the store gave an update disk.

 

Now, few years late I did Reinstall the 10.5 version ( update disk ), But it doesnt have I life.

I do have the full version 10.4.7 disk with me, each has the bundle software. But when I try to install I get the mensage saying some like that:

 

This software can not be install on this machine.

 

 

I tryed to reinstall the version 10.4.7 that has the bundle software. But I getting the same message.

    I think if you want to be current and avoid issues you should consider buying iLife complete.

    Read this user tip on iLife.

    Once you verify which version is on your disks, make sure its system requirements overlap your currently installed operating system.   If not, check each version of iLife until you find the one that most reflects your operating system.

    Note the iLife installer that comes with a Mac, should only in theory be installed on that Mac, until it is too updated to understand the iLife components needed.  If you have another Mac without iLife, or a version you want supported, you may have to find a retail copy of iLife somewhere that fits your needs.

    Hi Fabricio, this should work.

     

    Get Pacifist...

    then extract/install what you need from your Install Disc.

    Pacifist should work, as long as any supporting libraries aren't missed.  This article;

    Which was in the user tip I published says how to restore from the original discs.  If it fails to work, either the discs are damaged, the drive is damaged, or your machine needs a new PRAM battery.

     

    You may also get better help from an Apple usergroup near you:

    Gray Discs are machine specific, could it be from another Mac?
