Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

While there is a set for 10.4.8, those are for the MacBook. I'm looking for either build 8Q1058 or 8R4049 for the MacBook Pro.

Have you tried it? And we have one more that doesn't have any machine tag on it. Remember, there's no special software for the Pro or anything, they are all identical except for an identifying tag in the installer (which can be circumvented).

There actually are additional kernel extensions in that restore media to support the 8600M GT in the machine. Those extensions are not present in any other builds/disks. So while you could use any other Tiger DVDs on such a machine, you would not have operational graphics.

Updates such as the 10.4.11 update don't seem to contain those either.
