    Hi - I've got a Powermac G3 (BW), which in addition to its own hard drive has a hard drive attached to a Tempo ATA100 pci card. The startup disk is chosen as the pci drive, which runs Panther.
    As an experiment, I loaded Tiger on a small partition on the native drive. The install worked perfectly - the only problem is that when I want to return to Panther from Tiger I do not see the pci drive in disk startup, so that I have to return to 9.2 which then shows the pci drive in startup disk, so that I can rebbot to Panther. Does anyone know why 9.2 on the native drive can see Panther, while Tiger on the native drive cannot?

    Looking at the Tiger compatibility page I can't find the Tempo ATA-100 one, although the 133 one is mentioned.

    On the Panther compatibilty page, all except the Tempo ATA-66 are supprted.

    So, it could be just a Tiger-incompatible card.
