    Incorrect time on Mac Mini G4

    Yes, I am just waiting for my Sister to come over who has some tools that will make it easier. Then we have to find a spare which I am sure I have lying around somewhere.

    Incorrect time on Mac Mini G4

    I'm kind of afraid if I open the case I might break it so I don't need to, I don't want too. If I need to, I think I know someone who can help.
  3. Hi: The other day, my Mac Mini G4 gave a warning telling me the time was set wrong, I fixed it but it's giving me that error again. I suspect the battery is dead. Does it need to be removed? I could just set the time every time I power it on, but I am afraid of it leaking? -Jamie

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    I don't have any laptop memory to spare.

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    Nice to see my idea works! :)Too bad there is not much documentation on this.

    Thank you, I imagine it will be very slow for me too :(. Oh well, still very interesting to know you can do such a thing. I love "hacks" like this.

    It's ok, I could see where you were coming from.

    Great idea, Gorgonops! You could probably customize the images as well.

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    Yeah I know, it's a lot of work, I'll have to find the time to work on it. Could be very useful though, yes.

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    I don't know whether I want to do this for any length of time or not, at the moment, it's just an experiment. Even if I wanted too I don't have any small IDE hard drives and I am not confident enough with hardware to do that procedure. I only take apart laptops if I don't care about them.

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    That looks like it would do what I want, thanks. I would be installing a second drive in my computer so it would still be usable as a normal computer. The only problems I see are: maybe speed and it would take more power than an enclosure.

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    I'll keep an eye out for enclosures. I don't want to repartition mainly because I don't have that much space on the drive.

    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    So I want to install a second OS on my Mac Mini G4 but I don't want to repartition the 40 GB drive inside it. It will not boot off of USB and I don't want to buy a FireWire enclosure, they are expensive cause FireWire is now a outdated technology. I have a couple of ideas though: Get the Mac Mini G4 to boot off of USB, I've looked into this but it's not easy. Get the Mac Mini to boot off another computer via Target Disk Mode You are correct my PowerMac G4 Yikes does not have Target Disk Mode. There are still a couple of ideas: I have a Pentium 4(yes a PC) with a Firewire 400 PCI card in it. If I had some sort of server, maybe I could emulate "Target Disk Mode" Maybe there is a way I can emulate this on Mac OS 9 Some sort of simple firmware "hack" to enable Target Disk Mode on the PowerMac G4 Yikes?
