No, X 10.6 Requires an Intel CPU (Snow Leopard), X 10.5 (Leopard) works just fine on Intel and PowerPC, provided it is 867 G4 Processor or higher...

hello sir,

please provide correct information

to help you on this issue

give the exact error code received

I have a MacBook 2.2 GHZ that came with Snow Leopard installed. Works fine, but some peripherals I own won't work, so I want to go back to 10.5. However, message says Mac OS X won't install on this computer, when I try to install 10.5.

I've tried wiping the HD but no joy. Wonder what's going on? I've installed Leopard on 2.2s before.

10.5 will install on a g4, 10.6 is intel only

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
Install leopard using an external hard drive. You can also use your Ipod. This should do the trick of downgrading to an earlier version of Mac OSX

OS X 10.5 requires an Intel CPU - your PowerBook G4 uses a PowerPC processor.

You can't install 10.5 on your computer.

leopard runs fine on ppc it is 10.6
Best you stick with a PC, forget the MAC.
