View Full Version : [PPC] ppc precise pangolin

June 2nd, 2012, 08:43 PM
hey all,

Im trying to install precise on my PowerMac G5, but my superdrive is a little shot and is having a real hard time running the install. before i go on I'll sy im using the correct PPC build for this device, and I've used Ubuntu a lot before.

is there another way to run the install? I've tried using usb as outlined in the 8.04 details on how to do it, even to the point where ive tried to load it through of, but to no avail. I couldnt even attempt a hard drive install. because I couldnt find a way to boot from it

any ideas? ive run fresh out and im losing hope a little bit xD
