How do I burn a bootable os x tiger disc from a windows computer?

Asked by jegonza89 (38points) July 1st, 2008 from iPhone

I have a older powermac g4. My hd was failing so I replaced it. During I loaded up disk utility and accidently tried to repair my drive. The comp crashed and now at start up the apple logo pops up then loads to a blank blue screen. I have no restore disc because I bought the comp on craigslist. PLEASE HELP.

A (dmg) file is the same as a (iso) file. Rename the intallwhatever.dmg to installwhatever.iso

Burn it how you would normally burn a ISO disc. If I used Windows I would use DeepBurner to do this. It is pretty simple. Make sure you burn it as a image and not a data file.

And I know the copy of OS X was probably downloaded. I don’t really care.
