iBook G4 death advice
Yesterday, literally an hour before settling off to the apple store to purchase Tiger my iBook G4 (800 Mhz) had a crash
Fine I thought! I rebooted.... Went to the blue screen where the booting messages usually appear, but without the message. It basically just hung...
Fine, I thought... I rebooted again. Same screen
And again, this time hanging on the initial apple screen with the spinning thing
Hmmn... I began to get annoyed now! I finally got it to boot into desktop only to have it freeze again moments later...
I was annoyed! I also just moved to the states and my initial CD's for installing panther are at home... Gutted! I had my powermac G5 ones with me however, but they wont work for obvious reasons...
So I thought screw it i'll buy tiger I know you can get to disk utilities from booting from CD in tiger
So purcahsed Tiger and arrived home. Hold C, wont boot from CD.
Hold 'option' select the tiger CD from boot. Wont work
Gutted. Hold command S and run FSCK (disk check)... It says all is fine! Still wont boot.
ARGH!!! What has happened???!!
