Updating mac 10 4 11
Tiger would become the first version of OS X to support Intel Macs when they began to ship in January 2006.
See Installing OS X 10.4 Tiger on DVD-Challenged Macs Using Fire Wire Target Disk Mode and Using Fire Wire Target Disk Mode to Install OS X on Macs without DVD Drives for details.Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger was released on April 29, 2005, went through 12 revisions, and wasn’t replaced until OS X 10.5 Leopard arrived on October 26, 2007 – two-and-a-half years later (almost 30 months to the day).Many consider Tiger a high point because of the wide range of hardware it supports and its length of time on the market, which we will probably never see matched with Apple moving toward an annual update cycle.Apple’s official hardware requirements for Tiger are a G3 CPU, 256 MB of system memory, 3 GB of available hard drive space, an optical drive that supports DVDs, and a built-in Fire Wire port, although it can be run on the 350 MHz i Mac, which does not have Fire Wire.We strongly recommend more than 256 MB of memory – at least 512 MB if your Mac supports it.The following Macs were supported in OS X 10.3 but not 10.4: beige Power Mac G3, tray-loading i Macs (which can run it via an unsupported installation), and the Lombard Power Book G3 (which can also run it via an unsupported installation).
Tiger is immune to the “goto fail” bug discovered in early 2014.
Standalone Updates let you update to a newer version of Mac OS X from your hard drive instead of using Software Update, which requires an Internet connection.
Download the one(s) you need and install them after mounting the disk image and launching the Installer program.
There are two types of Standalone Updates: Individual (or Delta) and Combo.
Standalone Updates are generally available 24 to 48 hours after the Update is available through Software Update.
If you burn a Standalone Update to CD, its disk image must be copied to your desktop or another location on your Mac OS X startup disk in order to be installed.
