    Chances are your G4 has a SCSI hard drive and target mode will not boot into that type of drive, only ATA drive

Hi I bought apple I mac G5 1.6mhz 80gb serial number W84457TKPP6 from eBay. I'm just wondering how I connect it to internet? Do I need dongle and if yes what do I buy? Thank you. Regards Alison.


apparently you can use a wi fi usb adapter
see

http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-WIRELESS-CARD-for-iMAC-MAC-Apple-Airport-G3-G4-G5-X-/130334850512

But suggest checking if the g5 has a wireless card installed in it first before buying a dongle.


you may have an airport extreme card but if it does not have one see link below
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201713

suggest asking an apple store for advice on the g5 Imac

this help link should show where the card should be installed in your G5

Mac powerbook G4, I Cannot Reset a New Password, c with disk or apple + s do not work


Do you know someone with a USB or Firewire external drive box. If you do, take you drive out of your computer, install it into the box. Your friend may be able to copy/move you data/information to CD/DVDs and then format your disk. There is nothing that can survive a format. After your drive is formatted, create a partition on it and copy your data/info to the partition. Your friend should make sure his antivirus/malware is up to date. He wouldn't want to catch what caught you.
