I just upgraded my HD, Ram and Superdrive in my G4 17" flat. It
starts the OSX installation when I put the CD in the drive and I have
the ability to go in and 'partition' the drive...I have a maxtor 160 GB
dimond max...ive tried one partition, two partitions with the first
8GB, and 13 partitions with the first two Under 8GB and the remainder
each time i leave the disk area and go thru the installation steps,
when it asks where I want the files to go it shows the HD (all the
partitions) but they all have a red exclimation point over top...it
will not let me click them or anything...i thought i remembered the
first time it told me "unable to install to this drive" but I can not
reproduce the error...
A bit more about my computer...
The manufacturer ram slot has a 1 GB stick of Apple approved ram...the
user ram slot is empty at this time but I plan on adding my other 1 GB
stick once I know the manufacturer slot stick is working correctly
(which I assume is since it 'boots', but I dont know any other way to
check its size without installing OSX...
I replaced the superdrive with the Panasonic 108 i think...seems also
to be working properly becasue it accepts the CD and reads/starts
The harddrive is a 160GB Maxtor Diamond Max Plus i believe...8MB cache,
7200 so on and so fourth...
The OS i am attempting to install is 10.3 from the family pack CD...it
is legit and not pirated...
Can anyone help with this problem???
