Can't Install Panther cause it hangs on restart
Posted on 2004-09-02
I have a Mac G3 (Beige) that is giving me problem with installing Pather. I currently have OS 9.2 installed. When ever I start the installation of panther from 9.2 I get an error stating that it can't change the startup device. I tried restarting it, and it hangs with a blank screen (no signal to monitor), no HD activity, and no chime. The only way I can get it to start is by unplugging the power cable and leaving it off for 5 min.When I finelly get it to start up, I try to have it boot from the Panther CD, and it restarts itself and hangs again. I've tried reseting the PRAM and that only fixes it for a short period of time. I get alot of restart problems with these beige G3s. Is there anything I can do to fix this. Such as a firmware upgrade? What is casuing it to hang after a restart?
