A. Installing Mac OS X 10.4 > The Basic Installation

The Basic Installation

The installation process takes about an hour, but for the sake of your own psyche, you’ll probably want to set aside a whole afternoon. Once the installation is over, you’ll want to play around, organize your files, and learn the lay of the land.

Phase 1: The Installer

Here’s how you install Tiger onto a drive that doesn’t have a version of Mac OS X on it already:

  1. Insert the Mac OS X DVD (or CD). Double-click the Install Mac OS X icon in the CD’s main window. When the Restart button appears, click it.

    The Mac starts up from the disc and takes you directly to the first Installer screen.

    All right, so you want to install Tiger onto a Mac that doesn’t have a DVD drive.

    One option is to pay Apple $10 for a set of Tiger CDs. Wait until they come in the mail. Watch a lot of TV and eat a lot of frozen dinners.
