Earlier today I was using my PowerBook G4 1.5 GHz just fine. Shut it down and brought it with me to a meeting. Got there and it would not start up. Here I think great "the hard drive is toast". I brought it home and the symptoms continue. I tried doing a PMU and PRAM reset just for good measure. It does not let me start in Safe Mode at all. I can boot via Verbose Mode but it hangs at: Code: BSD root: disk0s3, major 14, minor 2 [HCIController][configurePM] power parent ready after 1 tries On a hunch I boot from my Leopard USB and it tells me all is well and repairing the disk and permissions comes back with flying colors. Here is the curve ball, I am able to put the PowerBook into Target Disk Mode and start without issues on my PowerMac G5. I even transplanted the hard drive into my other PowerBook and it works fine. Using a different hard drive in this PowerBook works fine too. Do you guys think that the drive is on its death Mac and is going to the iCloud? Of course this has to happen right after I give away my last hard drive in an iBook G3 What are the best options for replacement then? I cannot afford a new hard drive for this thing so I am hoping that this is just a software issue.
