A bit of background. I'm got a G5 and am running the latest Tiger. Got Leopard today and tried to install. I thought that the install process would ask me about either archiving or clean install. Got to the point where the hard drive showed with a yellow caution and said that it would have to be an "erase" and install. That I didn't want. So I tried to back out using the "back" buttons. Got to where I couldn't back out any more and shut it off with the power switch. Mistake. Powered up and was right back to install Leopard screens as the install disc was still in the drive. Well this time I remembered to look up at the menu bar and saw the quit install. It then asked what drive I wanted to boot from on restart and I highlighted the Tiger drive and shut down. BTW, I manually ejected the Leopard disc. Now when I power up it hangs on the grey screen and then just shuts down. Next I tried to boot from the Tiger install disc and was able to get up and running to the point of actual install. Went to disc utilities and looked for my hard drive. It was there and tried to run disc repair and found that it stopped at one error. I can't go any further. At this point I'm open to anything. Can I connect via firewire to anther mac and at least see my data on the G5 drive. If I could do this at least I could retrieve it and then erase the drive and do a clean install. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
