hey gang...

I have an old 12" PB, 867mhz, 768 ram, OS 10.3.9 with 8.0 on it.. I was updating it to 8.2, 8.21 and 8.3 and it appears to have problems getting past the 8.2 build 768, dated 1/17/2005. I understand that the 8.21 build is from march and the 8.3 from May, so I used that as my guidelines regarding how far I got. This particular powerbook has the geforce4MX in it, BTW...

The instilation goes through the motions, and 8.20 instalation from 8.0 appeared to have happened without any problems.. I have the dongle connected. The OS is updated. I have tried rebooting...

Any suggestions?

Hi !

I'm not MAC user but i wonder why are you doing 8.0 -> 8.2(1) -> 8.3 ?? Why not just 8.0 -> 8.3 . Skip 8.2(1) 'coz AFAIK 8.3 have all what 8.2 and 8.2.1 had so no need for incremental upgrades.

cheers

Thanks lewis...

I seem to remember that you didn;t need 8.01 to updated from 8.0 to 8.2. Other than that I was doing 8.0->8.2->8.21->8.3. I only get as far as 8.2 (I think). I even tried jumping from 8.2 to 8.3, skipping 8.21, but to no avail.


any mac users with this problem?

I was fortunate to get some great help from Donny at NT Tech Support. To get the upgrade to work I had to download and install 8.2, 8.2.1 and finally 8.3. Once I'd download them and installed in sequence I've had no problems( fingers crossed ). Downloading was my only drama and that took me around sixty attempts over 24 hours but I got there in the end (Thanks greatly Donny)

Well.. thats what I did, except I can't get past the 8.2-> 8.21 part!

I mean do you need Tiger, is there a memory limit, anythingnew like that?
