Well i recently bought an ibook G4 and im having a few problems with it. First of all the guy i bought it from has a bunch of junk on it and theres all these weird settings, so I decided i would get it back to its factory settings to start out fresh. However he did not give me the disks that come with the laptop when he bought it. It has mac os x version 10.5.8 and i wanted to know if theres anyway to buy these disks. If so please tell me!
Hello and welcome to the support community.
Indeed you can.
There are two types of disk you could buy. System restore which are gray. These would have been supplied with the iBook when it was new. These would have been Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) depending on what year the iBook G4 was sold and which model it is. You can buy these disk, but they are hard to come by. Some online venders do stock them, but you would have to search the Internet for them or eBay.
The other type is a retail disk, these are black disks and have large 'X' logo's on them.
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard was not supplied with the iBook when it was new. You can buy a copy from vendors like Amazon, but they are not cheap. Apple no longer produce or supply Mac OS X 10.5 DVD's
I hope this helps.
