Can't get iMac G3 to boot anything

Recommended Posts

I took my iMac G3 out and it boots up to a blinking folder, but it won't boot anything. If I try to boot any CD I get a DEFAULT CATCH code 70, and it won't boot off of the disk either. I used my G5 and Target Disk Mode to install Tiger on the machine but it won't boot from that or find it in the option-key startup menu. I'm able to get directory listings off of CDs and the drive, but not boot into anything.


It has a fresh PRAM battery and I've reset the PRAM multiple times.
