I installed OS 10.4.2 over a newer version (10.4.6? on my iMac G5). I have the "Previous System" folder. I want to get back to where I was before I stupidly installed an older OS. How can I start up from the previous system? Thanks!

    That is not possible from the Previous System folder. That folder is only there to provided for the recovery of files.Hence the reason that a backup is suggseted because if you had backed up with a bootable clone going back would be a matter of rebooting to the colne and restoring the clone.

     

    You will need to reinstall the previous system from CD.
