The school I teach at has piles of iBook G4's lying in a room. No one can use them because the old tech guy left and the new tech guy doesn't have the time. I was told if I can get them going I can use them in my classes. I asked for the install discs and was given the full set, iBook Mac OS X install, software restore, and hardware test. I couldn't get any of the discs to boot and finally I tried the Hardware Test disc. I get the message "Apple Hardware Test does not support this machine." So now I believe the reason I can't boot from the Mac OS X Install disc is because it is the wrong one for the machine. The install disc is labeled Mac OS versioin 10.1.2. How do I figure out what OS is on the machine. I can log into the student account which is very limited. Can anyone tell me how to determine which OS is on the machine now so I know what install disc I need to look for?
