    Emulate Target Disk Mode PowerMac G4 PCI

    I don't have any laptop memory to spare.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 It will not boot off of USB and I don't want to buy a FireWire enclosure, they are expensive cause FireWire is now a outdated technology.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?
  11. Anway to emulate "Target Disk Mode" in Mac OS 9. This is for my G4 PCI which lacks such a feature in its firmware. If not possible, any way of doing this with a PC? I want to install a second OS on my Mac Mini G4(on a separate drive) but don't want to buy a firewire enclosure.
  12. This is true, an HD monitor(not TV) should work fine with it. I tried hooking my Mac Mini up to a couple of now older HDTV and did not work.(just got a black screen). I wish there was an easy workaround for this since I want to use it with my video capture card witch SEEMS to suffer from the same problem.
  13. I have had this problem with several old video cards. Looking into it, DVI and HDMI are not as compatible as most people think. For one thing, HDMI uses "Y′CBCR" colour space by default with RGB being optional, DVI uses "RGB" and "Y′CBCR" is optional. Some old video card had an S-video connection with a higher number of pins and with the correct adapter(example: https://www.thinkcables.com/products/01779.html, you would use this to hook the card up to a TV with component video. Audio would be separate.
