    Hello All,

    My Dads hardrive on his imac (ppc) has gone and unfortunately we only have the disc for OSX Tiger... he's put a new HD in and reinstalled but need to upgrade it back to Leopard (which he no longer has a disc for) to retrieve his data with timecapsule...

    Unfortunately Apple now only seem to sell 'snow leopard' which is incompatable with the ppc imac if any one has a copy to borrow or buy it would be much appreciated..

    Thanks

    Andy

    Keep up typo, it's not an intel mac so it won't run snow leopard mate.

    I'd say trawl eBay but even there it's at least £60.

    Think he paid about £130 off ebay - can't remember how much it was to buy new but I think ppl are taking advantage of the fact apple no longer sell it... Still all sorted now.
