Ok so I recently got a g4 Cube and have been waiting on hard drive to come in for it, it didn't come with one. I got a IBM Deskstar 120 GB ATA-100 Hard Drive which is compatible with it. Well I plug it in and start it up, I get the Flashing folder ithw a question mark on it and the face message, which means it can't find a start-up system on it right? Well this is happening when I am tryign to boot from the 0SX DVD, ver 4.11. Well what gives, I can boot from the DVD if the drives isn't installed no problem, but as soon as I plug it in, even during the installation process the computer will freeze with the pinwheel spinning forever, I clocked it at 33 mins before I gave up. I don't know if its the hard drive or what. I tried to run disk utility on it from the DVD, but as soon as I plug in the drive while running disk utility it will freeze up on me with the spinning pinwheel. It is the drive that's messed up or what? IT seems that way cause the computer will freeze while trying to recognize the hard drive, like if there is no firmware on it. Can anyone shed some light on this? And I know, it's retarded of me to run the machine with it outside of it's casing but hey can ya blame a guy for trying to get it work.
