Re: A new adventure….

Yeah there's indeed a generic OS9.2.2 image floating around somewhere (again, I can't give a direct link, per site rules), you just burn it to a CD and with the CD inside the Mac's CD drive it should get picked up by the boot picker (hold ALT/OPT), once you boot into it, you should have the option …

Re: A new adventure….

I doubt it would be the hard drives that causes this, I'm guessing the restore utility tries to find the machine's ID and since the QSG4 has a different machine ID compared to its older brothers, the utility then locks itself out. Theorically past system 7.x, Apple did away with the "OEM only" hard …

Re: A new adventure….

Yup and yup, and you can either hold the "ALT"/Option key at boot and select which drive to boot from, or go into the OS' settings, select the "Startup drive" and select which drive you want to boot from at next boot.

Re: A new adventure….

Ooh a G4 QuickSilver, nice! I've got its successor (MDD, 1GHz DP), it's a bunch of work but it'll be worth the effort. Ahem, sorry I digress... What are the specs on this bad boy? If you want I got a couple of pointers, first, the PSU, on these it's a common weak spot (more so on the MDD) more often …

Re: Which 17\19 inches crt monitor choose

Thank you I've tried the manuals but apparently only the vesa resolutions are stated. Is there a program that I can use to check the various refresh rates? This probably will sound dumb but since it's a LG, try and send a higher than expected resolution, your monitor should show a "OUT OF RANGE" …

Re: Were you ever hurt by a computer?

in Milliways
Add this one to the list: Pinched fingers and jolted by an unplugged power supply. I was just trying (and struggling) to put back together a 27in iMac after a hard drive swap, I'll spare you the details, but at the moment that I had to pull the LCD out again (ain't an easy feat on a 27in!), my …
