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.


Can any one help me. I just need to instal IDVD, I movie etc....

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

  • a brody Level 9 (65,731 points)

    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 Allan,


       I am Really sorry, But maybe l havent explain it well. I do have the disk on my hand, that has the bundled software, ( Os 10.4.7 ) I need to instal the bundled software ( ILife)


       I am running with the version 10.5 cause the store gave me a update disk few days later after I bought my computer. When the new version came out.


    Now,  I reinstall the version 10.5 and I have no I life what I really need.


    Buy a New I lfe is not the answer. Cause it worked  well all this years.


    The problem is that I cant reinstall it. I tryed to reinstall the Version 10.4.7 to solf this. But I am Getting the same message.



    I have all the disks in my hand. The only solution is reinstall every thing. Its a question of  principle.


    PS: If you can´t solve the problem you have would you buy one easy solution, just because you don´t know how?



    Thanks. I still hopping to fix it.

    Hi Fabricio, this should work.


    Get Pacifist...



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

  • a brody Level 9 (65,731 points)

    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:

    Hi Brody,


         I did install Idvd using Pasific. But When I tryed to opened it says. This version Of iDvd can´t work with this Os Version.


       So the only solution that I have now is to Downgrade  from 10.5 to original version that came with the computer 10.4.7  and only after all done use the update dvd to 10.4.5 What do you think?


    Thanks for the help and happy new year

    What is the color of the 10.4 Install disc & the 2z691-****-A number on it?

  • fjunho Level 1 (0 points)



    The color is grew for sure the number I need to check.



    I used the Pacific as you said. It worked for iMovie, iPhoto,etc but not for iDvd that I need to most.


    It may be my foult. I tryed to Install iDvd saparately. It asked if I wish to over write some files that exist all ready on my computer. I said yes.


    Result I getting the mesage saying this version of iDvd can´t work with this Os version


    then I tryed again with all bundle Software and said No


    Now all is working but iDvd not


    Thanks  I will check the number
