I have a iMac G5 (PPC). 2004 when I got it. And have the original HD. 150 GB. Following Murphy's Law this HD is due for failure. I have bought a 1 TB. new hard drive to install on this machine. I forgot which OS came with it (10.3) I think. My set up is that I back up my iMac G5 (PPC) to a external Hard drive (300GB) with Time Machine. I have updated thru software update to 10.5.8. But have no DVD installer for 10.5.8.
How can I make an installer for my new hard drive? Or should I partition new 1TB hard drive with the same amount of space as my time machine back up? I may not put everything on current system on new drive.
