I am about to add a second internal hard drive to my Power Mac G5, currently running Tiger.

My question: Can I format the new drive, install Leopard on it, go through all the updates, migrate a copy of my own stuff to the new drive, then choose at startup whether to start from the old drive, using Tiger, or the new drive, running Leopard? Is this possible?

Power Mac G5 Dual 2.5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Hi,

    Yes, you can dual boot with your G5 under tiger. After you press the power button to startup your G5 hold down the alt/option key until you see a screen that will show all the bootable volumes. From there you can pick with volume to start up with.

    You can also change the startup disk under system preferences/startup disk.

    Thanks, Noice_T. If I could figure out how to mark this "solved", I would.
