My son's G4 will boot to the install CD, but will not recognize the IDE hard
drive. When I run system diagnostics I get no errors, but when I run
hardware profiler, I don't see an IDE interface. I think that's probably not
a good thing: Questions
1) Will the interface appear as IDE in System Diagnostics?
2) Is there a BIOS I can get into to check whether the IDE interface is
2) If the IDE port is dead, can I put a SCSI card in?
3) Are there any diag iso's I can download to further pinpoint the trouble?
