I was given a powermac g5 by a family member without a power cord or ram. I was thrilled to finally get one, but I have come across a slight problem. Before I format/erase the 2 WD 250gb drives that are in a raid I wanted to make sure there was nothing on there that might need to be saved. But when I start it up it gets stuck on the gray apple screen with the fans running full speed. I did get 4gb of ram installed and found a power cord, the machine itself works great, I tested it with a spare drive I had. I just cannot figure out the startup issue. The g5 in question is a late 2005 dual core 2.0ghz, 4gb of ram and a gf6600le with 128mb of vram.
