    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses. (see rule #3 under Minor Problems)
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?


    Example: What and how to upgrade on my G3/4 iBook?

    Or what is the point of this thread? I haven't watched the video though or is that a requirement to understand this thread?

    Hi,

    I'm having trouble hearing the video.

    It looks like the computer is looking for the OS on the internal hdd but can't. You were showing an external drive but I don't know if you were connecting with USB or FireWire. I don't think that the G3 iBook will boot from USB.

    s.

    ps. The PPC fourm is http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=145

    To quote multiple users, use the [​IMG] button instead of making several posts.

    Also use a descriptive thread title, as booting from USB on a PPC Mac seems to be not coherent with updating a laptop.

    Easily boot from USB 2.0 drives on PowerPC Macs

    First, the hard drive is probably dead... Second, the copy of the OS X discs must be formatted with the Apple Partition Map, not GUID.
