    Default copy of OSX Tiger

    My original DVD of Tiger for my PPC G4 Mini is dead. Cannot be read in drive and I want to put a new HDD in my Mini with OSX and with MorphOS. I have a working Leopard but lets be honest Tiger is better for a low end G4 Mini.

    Can someone burn me a copy if I provide a photo of my disk to confirm its legit?

    Or failing that, someone want to sell me their original at a sensible price?

    Did you get sorted out? Because slot loading drives can fail in Minis so it might be the drive

    You have your own disc so i think you can found on any torrent site a backup copy of your disc.
    Otherwise, you should consider going Leopard. I have Tiger on my MacMini G4 because i wan't to keep Os9 compatibility, but Leopard is no slower and has more compatible softwares. Developpers are forgetting about Tiger support by now, unfortunately.

    I would have said that Leopard is slower on a G4 than Tiger on the same machine. Yes, Tiger is virtually abandoned now, along with Leopard and PPC however there is life in the old stuff.
