As I recall, Apple put a restriction on graphics cards with an 'NDRV' before some date, and there was a command you could set to get it to use older 'NDRV's
Nice work mate. That is a remarkable piece of Apple history you have there.
It will certainly clock up to 350MHz tax-free. I wonder how many times Apple have done this.. They release their "Good", "Better", "Best" model schedule and just underclock the "Better" option, usually running on the same hardware as the "Best" option, less the $500 "full fare" premium
Any ideas on upgrades? I’d like to run Leopard and/or Tiger on it but I can no longer seem to find any RAM CPU, or GPU upgrades, and hardly any information online about what kinds I’d need. I don’t even know if I can get USB into this thing.
So first: Thank you very much! but all language kits are missing, only english is working
Perhaps i can add the german language from my iMacG5 "fingers crossed".
Is the a G4 cache enabler installed?
I think that too. OS X itself might be fallback to English if none of the selected language are found on disk, but some applications will crash. Try a ENG only install first, then add your language pack via OSX settings and a full-size leopard image like @Daniël Oosterhuis suggested.
Figured this would be a good place to post this, as i know a few people here are looking for G4 ZIFs,
I came across this seller that has (At the time of this writing) about 6 7400/7410 ZIF CPUs for sale, sadly he peeled the labels off of them but most of them are clearly nice sonnet ones (note the speed rating on the die of the CPUs are not always indicative of the speed the ZIF was sold at)
(Mod note: not my auction or anything, just came across these while watching another ebay item )
TL;DR: if you have a G3 beige, G3 BW or a Slocket you want to upgrade to a G4 CPU the above link should have you covered
