I have a fairly functional iMac G4 ( 800 MHz 512MB 75GB HD) which I upgraded to Tiger (10.4.11) several years ago.  I also have a iMac G5 (1.8 GHz 512MB 160 GB HD) which is running OS 10.3.9.  I'd like to upgrade the G5 to Tiger.

 

Can I use the Tiger upgrade disks that I own to upgrade the G5?  Is this possible (will it work if they have been used before) or does Apple disable the install ability of the disks? 

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.3.x)

    If they are black retail disks they will work.

     

    If they came with the Mac they won't, as those are machine specific.

    Then it should work.
