I have an old G5 tower that I’m trying to reboot through my MacBook Pro. I don’t have monitor or keyboard for tower at this time. When free of MacBook the tower chimes and turns on. But when I connect the computers through a usb and turn on the MacBook while hitting option my tower instantly powers down and just starts turning off and on while not rebooting or loading anything at all, and my MacBook shows no option to reboot through tower. I just want to grab some things off that tower without having to buy more cords and equipment (ie an external casing for towers internal storage drives). Any suggestions?
