I am new here and wanted to reach out since I acquired a Power Mac 7300/180 with a CPU upgrade in it from Facebook Marketplace as a project computer to get it running and to dive into retro Macintoshes.
The SCSI hard drive died along with the CD drive that came stock in the computer. I...
After digging deep into Open Firmware, I think I have discovered a method to booting from USB on PowerPC Macs that works flawlessly* on every NewWorld Mac made after 1999. This method doesn't rely on having a USB flash drive that happens to play well with Open Firmware or any externally powered...

I have a Power Mac that I'm trying to install an OS on, but for some reason every time I boot into one of my many install disks, it either stalls and then displays an icon of a ripped folder, or shows me a loading screen indefinitely. (The latter happens mostly with 10.x versions) So my...

I thought I'd start a thread about how to develop applications for PowerPC Macs running Tiger and Leopard, as I learn to do so.
(I know there is a programming-specific sub-forum here, but that's really oriented towards modern macOS / iOS development, so I figured this sub-forum is a better fit...

For folks who use PowerPC and even Intel Macs (prior to, say, macOS 10.15 Catalina), it’s never too soon or too late to start planning for the impending, dual Y2K-like hard limits...
This thread is for PowerPC Macs you’ve either been given for free; found for free; rescued (again, for free) from an electronics recycler; or best yet, a dumpster-dive find. (I’ve also started a parallel thread on the Early Intel Macs forum for found Macs of the Intel variety).
