Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

First of all I am an IDIOT! I was getting frustrated with my powermac G4 trying to wipe and install Mac OS X Tiger. Disks would not start after restarting computer, disk would not show up in Startup Disk preference so that I could start the disk?? Got frustrated and just deleted the whole damn hard drive. NOW, I can get any Operating system installed?? AAHHHH! Here is the death screen I currently see... panic(cpu 0 caller 0X002E1EC4): Unable to find driver for this platform: "PowerMac4,4". latest stack backtrace for cup 0: backrace: 0X0095A10 0X00026898 0X002E1EC4 (SEVERAL MORE NUMBER/LETTER COMBOS) Kernel Version: Darwin Kernel Version 8.11.0: Wed Oct 10 18:26:00 PDT 2007; root:xnu-792.24.17-1/RELEASE_PPC No debugger configured - dumping depug information MSR=00001030 Latest stack backtrace for CPU:0

I HAVE A OLDER POWERBOOK G4 WITH A POWER PC PROCESSOR . I AM HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING A SAFARI BROWSER THAT WILL WORK


Which version of OS X are you using?

The last version you can use with your system is Tiger 10.4

If you're having issues I'd recommend you do a clean install of Tiger and follow it up by running all the updates afterwards that will for sure fix your problem ;)

if your hard drives were in a RAID configuration at any point or your computer has a RAID controller in it nothing will work until you reconfigure the RAID setup. it is probably a good idea at this point to completely wipe the drives as there may be some lingering RAID configuration data remnants on them and this can also mess things up pretty good.

"-36" error message using Acomdata External Hard Drive


Have you tried taking the files off of the drive and repartitioning and reformatting the drive?
How is the drive formatted? Fat? Fat32 or HPFS? What version of Mac OS are you running? It is possible, depending on the version of the OS and the driver for the OS that it can have problems with drives that have partitions larger than 128 GB. It is also a bios limitation with older systems.
Look to see if there is an updated driver for the OS X version you are running.
Also check in the Disk Utility to see how the drive is partitioned and formatted. If it is going to be a Mac only drive, partition and format it as HPFS. If it is a drive that you will use in Windows as well, use Fat 32 and limit the partitions to 128 GB or less.

You could also try a newer version of OS X like Tiger or Leopard. They are both more stable than older versions and have better support for devices.

Cheers and good luck.

A recent mac laptop with Tiger & bootcamp/win XP will connect to the internet via a Netgear DG834G adsl modem with ethernet cable in tiger & XP but only in xp with wireless. Any advice? JL


If I understand you correctly you have an Intel based MAC, with the boot-camp boot manager, so you can choose to boot either from the native MAC OS or from Windows XP.

The system works fine from the MAC OS, but the (wired) ethernet does not work from XP.

1) When you boot into XP mode, the XP operating system is in
charge and the MAC OS is dormant.

2) Check the XP device manager to see if the ethernet NIC
(network device) is properly installed and if the device
drivers are functioning.

From Windows XP:

Right click My Computer ==> Properties => Hardware ==>
==> Device Manager ==> Network Adapters =>
==> Your network controller

Right click on your network controller ==> properties

Check the device status !!!

2) If the device is NOT working properly, you may need to
download and install a device driver for this card.

3) If the device IS working properly, you may need to run
the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel:

START ==> Control Panel ==> Network Setup Wizard ==>
==> Next.

4) Assuming you are connecting to DSL with a login password,
use the: "My computer connect to the internet through a
modem" option.

If your DSL is always on, or if you use a local router to
connect to the DSL modem (the router does the work)

Then you choose the: "My computer connects to the
internet through another computer or a residential gateway"
option.
