    PowerMac G5 7,3 MacOS 10.4 nstall disk

    Is a 7,3 a PCI-X or PCIe G5? Any PCI-X G5 can use Tiger 10.4.0 install disks but a PCIe might require 10.4.2 or higher. In that case, there's a DMG of 10.4.6 out there you can use for installing Tiger.

    PB145B’s finds

    Would be nice to have one that was, you know, in color. And the PDA itself having a color shell would be neat too.

    Yep, looks like I have Palm OS 3.0. Given the fact this thing came complete in box from a thrift store of all places I imagine it wasn't used much.

    How do I find out the OS version? And how do I load a new OS? This thing doesn't have an obvious hatches for ROM upgrades...

    I just have the one Palm III, but I still haven't found a use for it.

    Diagnosing a Plus that won't turn on

    Took almost a month to get back to this but sure enough, I have basically no voltage on the +5, -12, and +12 lines, literally less than a volt. Bad power supply?

    Free Macintosh Plus!

    I have two non-Platinum Pluses but one is ugly as hell and slightly damaged and the other is a converted 128k that doesn't work.

    Diagnosing the 9600 From Hell(tm)

    Oh right, 8.6 had more USB support. I should update to that.

    Yeah, I guess the problem all along was the CD-ROM drive. Which is a shame because that CD-ROM drive was a replacement for another SCSI CD-ROM drive that was also bad. This Sony ATA drive is loud as hell but it works every single time and that's all I need.

    Maybe? Probably a FireWire/USB combo card. 8.5 supports USB mass storage, right?

    I'm kind of thinking some kind of A/V card, actually. I've been wanting to experiment with video capture and editing on old hardware.

    I'm so glad too, I was ready to give up and part it out but now I have a powerful machine I can use for uh...uhhh...something. I have half my PCI slots filled and I dunno what to add when I already have a Rage 128 and a 10/100 Ethernet card.

    Well I'll be god-damned...I swapped the SCSI CD-ROM for an ATA one from my old beige G3 that got junked running off the other ATA bus on my controller card, re-jumpered the hard drive as Master, and now it's being recognized! Two years of frustration and neglect finally comes to an end with a 9600 that actually can be used! This calls for a celebration!

    My multimeter is so cheap it doesn't even have a continuity mode, but when I probed for resistance on both sides of the scratch I got 0.00, so I guess it's only cosmetic. Which means I have to try something else to figure out why the machine won't boot to anything other than a gray screen most of the time...

    Test where though? Each side of the break?
