  1. I have heard this many times before, and I have definitely made sure of this. I even tried the original 2gb hard drive to no avail
  2. That actually sounds exactly like the issue I am having, so I just need to boot from 9.0?
  3. OK, so I have gotten a chance to try making a new bootable CD on a different type of CD, and I think this is definitely more software oriented. So I decided to try booting a 10.0 burnt disk through 9.2.2, and I recieved an error telling me that startup disk could not select the cd. “-2 error”. And now even attempting to restart into the disk through holding the option key does nothing, as if this computer is just completely immune to OSX. So if anyone has ever had this issue before, and has found a solution, I would GREATLY appreciate the help. Thank
  4. Yeah, that’s what I thought it was, does it appear to be giving any hardware errors however, or is it just unable to find the server?
  5. So I recently came across an iBook on eBay, by a person claiming that on boot it gives a strange boot screen. The listing is right here, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223328938003 They say this is what it boots into, it appears to be trying to access a network, but if anyone else knows what it is, (or if it’s a good deal) I would greatly appreciate it. Cheers!
  6. That makes sense, I will try burning a new disk, however I have already tried with multiple different ones, including a tiger disk through xpostfacto. I might try 10.0 again however, originally, I received a burnt copy with the computer that seemed to work
  7. I have considered this, however, I have still installed multiple programs and even reinstalled macOS9 several times with no issue. And the fact it is always the backlight that randomly works confuses me.
  8. That’s funny actually, that is the same adaptor I have lol. also after further testing I determined I’m still getting the boot issues with regular hard drive as well. Although I was able to fully install and boot to it, I am still having issues where the backlight will not come on when I boot into OS X, or when I open the lid from sleep.
  9. That sounds good, I’m starting to think there’s a trend with using flash memory with these devices.
  10. Yes, It always tends to occur randomly, usually after I begin the install. It will mostly occur once it begins the main install, the time will increase to 3 hours, but it seems to hang indefinitely, and I’m pretty sure that the cd drive will stop spinning
  11. Hello, so a while ago, I upgraded my Powerbook g3 Wallstreet to a 16 gb ide to SD card adaptor, but I am only able to install macOS9 on it. Amy version of OSX results with a unbacklit install screen. And trying to install it anyways always ends up with a frozen installer. If anyone knows why this might happen I would greatly appreciate it.
