Target Disk Mode OSX Tiger Upgrade

Recommended Posts

This is a Hardware/Software question. I have a PowerMac G5 and a PowerBook G4 with a broken Superdrive. I don't want to fix the superdrive right now, but I would like to do a clean install of OS X Tiger on the PowerBook. I'm wondering if anyone has tried to use target disk mode or some other option to perform the upgrade without putting the install disc in the actual machine begin upgraded. Any suggestion? Thanks!

Yep I've done that a few times mostly without problems, once though on a 17" powerbook I started it up again and it came up with a no entry sign rather than the friendly apple logo (permissions problem) I seem to remember that being a problem with the HD though rather than the method.
