    Hi, I was given a machine that was stuck on the logo, after trying many things I decided to try and simply re-install the OS, start fresh.

    After realising the G5 will not boot from USB i decided to erase the main HDD, restore a DMG of Mountain Lion onto a partition on the HDD I had created once erased (in Apple Partition Map) only to find the G5 no longer even see's the HDD.

    What do I do?

    Many Thanks

    Tommy

    Mountain Lion won't run on PowerPC Macs. The latest you can use is Leopard 10.5.8
