My G4 Gigabit 450MHz DP tower died and I was able to replace it with a G4 MDD 1.25GHz DP PowerMac. I did a hard drive replacement and the new (vintage) computer works just like the old one. The Gigabit was at Mac OS X 10.4.11 but the MDD can be updated to Mac OS X 10.5.4. I have the discs for Mac OS X 10.5.4 from my MacBook Pro and the MDD read the discs. I didn't go any further than that as I have a question regarding the current master hard drive. The Gigabit had a limit of 128 GB for the boot hard drive and I purchased a program that allowed the memory above 128 GB to be used.


Now the questions:

Does the G4 MDD have the same 128 GB limit?

Will the +128 modification cause problems?


Any other tips and suggestions for this upgrade?



PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
