I recently did a 7 step wipe of a 12 inch 1.33 Ghz Silver PowerBook G4. In attempting to partition the 75 Gig HD and reinstall the original OS I have been getting a handful of problems including: the machine freezes up while installing the original software as well as any 10.5 software I try to install, it tends to give me a backtrace terminated frame not mapped Kernel panic error. I have tried to wipe the disk again to start from scratch but it freezes as well. Yesterday I thought it actually did successfully re-wipe the HD but then I could not see the HD inside disk utility. This morning I see the disk but when trying to partition the HD it freezes up (just sits there never actually crashing). Is there a crafty move to try to save this old timer or is it time to give up the ghost? Thanks for any help.
