Way to take away all the glamor!dynamicv said:Considering my 1G PB12" is effectively an G4-equipped iBook G3 coloured silver
Well, if it is like the PB12 it doesn't have one, though target disk mode can be entered by holding down T whilst it's booting.indigoflowAS said:ah, sorry, i may have not been clear...i'm looking for that tiny little button that you have to poke w/ a paperclip. similar to one i have under my TiBook. Really I'm just experimenting, see if i can get it to target disk mode before i gut the machine to salvage the data.
An attempt to enter target disk mode has been unsuccessful. The computer is essentially fried, just trying to see if it's alive enough to get to target disk mode w/o putting the HD in an external enclosure. So, if it doesnt have a reset button to give it one last shot...i guess I best whip out the screwdriver. Hopefully the data is did not go w/ the logic board...which appears to received a static charge. Thanks friends.dynamicv said:Well, if it is like the PB12 it doesn't have one, though target disk mode can be entered by holding down T whilst it's booting.
