Tiger to Leopard for PPC G5
on Oct 9, 2010 at 11:12:27 am

I want to move from 10.4.11 on my G5(PPC) to 10.5 My G5 has two internal hard drives.

Question 1. Should I back up the entire content of the drive which my system is on, including all applications (inc FCS 6), and then install Leopord - erasing the contents of that one drive?

Question 2. When Leapord is installed, can I then copy back to the original system drive all the applications and other files, and will they work? eg or rather do I have to install from discs all the apps again?

You'd be better off starting from scratch and reinstalling apps; at least with FCS anyway. My system had several issues when I tried to upgrade without reinstalling.
