Kernel Panic booting after restore

I've installed 10.4 on an iMac G4 700 (Power PC) by setting it as a Firewire drive to a MacBook.

Repartitioned the iMac hard drive using GUID partition scheme to get the installer to work from the intel macbook, then took a full backup of the hard drive to a sparse image. Then repartitioned the hard drive using Apple partition scheme (so that the iMac ppc could boot) and restored the sparse image using disk utility. Kernel Panic.

Then had another go, this time restoring the hard disk using Super Duper. Still kernel panic.

Can't find a panic log in /Library/Logs.

I know that installing Tiger on a PPC from an Intel machine needs the repartitioning shenanigans described above. Is this what's preventing the Imac from booting from the restored hard drive??

thanks

You can't do that: Power PC Macs cannot run Intel version of Tiger. Tiger is not universal.
