I just bought a G5 iMac 17" that had no hard drive. I have an old 160 gig drive to install, but there is something wrong with the optical drive and I can't insert an install disk. What I thought I could do is connect the 160 gig to my MacBookPro (OS X 10.7.4) and install Tiger to the USB drive. No go! I get a message that PPC is not supported. I tried booting from the install disk but my Mac bypassed it and booted into 10.7.4. What else can I do to get a compatible OS on the drive?
