Mac mini G4 OS X Leopard Install (CCC G5 Clone) | IMNC

Loads of people have been wondering what I’m doing with my Mac mini G4. After using the machine for experimentation for a little while, it’s time to give it a reinstall and use it for some proper tasks. When I say reinstall, I mean a clone using Carbon Copy Cloner from my studio G5. This is the easiest and quickest way to get Leopard on any machine that gives you even the slightest hint of optical drive / USB boot troubles. Only down side is, it’s not quite ‘fresh’ but luckily my G5 has barely been used.

Thanks for watching! I hope you all enjoy…


I cannot respond to all emails, but give it a go!

    Hey tom, I was looking to do an ff class power Macintosh 9600, I know putting a Sonnet G4 2 GHz upgrade card would make it leopard capable and my configuration for one would be: 2 PowerPC compatible SATA PCI cards, a SSD Raid setup, and a Hard Drive Raid setup. And I was wondering,what would be the best graphics card to put in one? And if you didn't know, the 9600 was essentially the Mac Pro of the PowerPC era, sporting 8 ram slots, a good amount of PCI expansion and still is a good option for anyone who likes older Macs that predate the Intel transition, while giving it a good amount of upgradability.
