Last week I posted a message that my Mac wouldn't boot up and I got this message: From path:"/pci@f2000000/mac-io@17/ata-4@1f000/disk@0:5,\mach kernel", waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOPath Match</key><string ID="1">IODeviceTree:/pci@f2000000/mac-io@17/ata-4@1f000/@0:5</string></dict> Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device Still waiting for root device Since then, I tried reinstralling both OS 9 & X but they both just freeze on boot. In OS 9 I get the welcome to OS 9.2 screen and that's where it freezes. On OS X the Mac freezes on the gray screen with the apple and the swirling icon. The icon swirls for a while and then it just freezes. I bought a new hardrive thinking that could be the problem but no luck. I get the exact same results. Can anyone help me? What should I check? I'm at a complete loss, I don't know what else to do. PLEASE HELP!
