Tiger… Not Yet Impressed

I don’t know if I got a bad disk or what, but my Tiger install did not go well. First off the disk wouldn’t verify. I called the Apple store and they said to just skip verification. I then choose archive and install and it archived everything but failed on install. Now I was left with 1.9 gigs which isn’t enough space to do much with. I then had to boot into OS 9 to backup and burn stuff that I wanted to try and save. Thank goodness I still had that around and everyone MUST partition their drives. Without OS 9 on a different partition, I would have been screwed. I then had to do a clean install and it worked! Now I’m in 10.4 and it’s after midnight so I won’t get to play much. I hope to get all my old information back, especially mail messages and keychain information.

I’ve never had any bad experience with updates until now and I don’t know if it had anything to do with my little screw-up as mentioned in a previous post.

Oh well, tomorrow (or later today) I will hopefully get to learn more about my new OS! I am still really excited for it.

    Sorry to hear you had some problems… My install went great (on my home powerbook) – I’m going to install on the dual 2.5 powermac later today… so far so good… and it’s perceptively quicker. I’m sure it will all work itself out in the end and you’ll be fine. I’m curious to know what you think of the new features once you have everything in place.
