    Hey guys,
    I have the 1.25ghz dual processor G4. I had to install a different hard drive (was a 40gig Maxtor IDE to a WD 300 gig IDE). I know for a fact that the WD is not a DOA as my iMac and Macbook (both intel) can see the drive as an external. My problem is that when I go to put Leopard onto the drive when its inside the G4 the drive doesnt show anywhere. Not in Disk Utility or in the "Select Destination Drive" section of the installation. Please Help!!!

    Just a quick thought...check that the jumper settings on the new drive are for "Master".
