I've acquired a PowerMac G4 (CPU type PowerPC G4 2.9). It is at least 6 years old to my knowledge. The previous owner passed away 4 years ago and it has not been used since that time. I am trying to determine whether or not to upgrade but would like to know if this model with 768MB of memory will be able to handle OSX Mountain Lion? Any advice on upgrades is welcome. The majority of the products on this G4 are out of date and I can not update because I do not know the previous "deceased" owner's admin password. The OS start up disk that belongs to the computer has been lost. Should I try to purchase another OS start up disk? Would that work to by pass the admin password? Thanks I know this was a lot of questions all packed into one.


PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
