Hi guys,
In my powermac G4 I have a 500Gb HDD (sata plugged on a sata pci card), with 3 partitions:

37Gb for tiger
48Gb for leopard
380Gb for data

My tiger installation stoped booting, on leopard I tried to repair it with Disk Utility.All was fine, no errors.
Still didn't boot.
Found that my "data" partition needed to be repaired, but disk utility can't do it.
Tried with MacOS 10.4 DVD and disk utilty still no go.
Any ideas?I can read and write in that partition..

Do you have DiskWarrior? That would be the next step. DW can repair just about anything and their customer service is very, very good.
