Hold down the T key during start up. The computer will boot into a blue screen with a firewire logo dancing around, and the computer attached to the other end of the firewire cable will show the target computer as a volume on the desktop.

While the other mac is in the target mode you can not do anything else on that computer.

How do i boot my mac book air in fw mode?


FireWire booting, as the name implies, is the ability to start up a computer from an internal or external FireWire drive.
FireWire booting is possible on all Macintosh models that have built-in FireWire ports with the exception of the Power Macintosh G3 (Blue & White) and the Power Mac G4 (PCI Graphics) models. You may need to upgrade the computer's firmware before FireWire booting will work. You can download the latest firmware for your computer from the Apple Software Updates Web site at http://www.apple.com/swupdates.
Note: Do not confuse FireWire booting with FireWire target disk mode as described in this article: "FireWire Target Disk Mode".
If you are unsure if your computer has a FireWire port, look for ports that look like those in Figure 1, or look for the FireWire symbol shown in Figure 2.

Follow these steps to start up your computer from an external FireWire drive:

    1. Ensure the proper drivers for the FireWire drive are installed in your computer.2. Connect the FireWire drive to your computer and ensure the icon for the disk appears on the Finder desktop.
    3. Install the appropriate system software onto the disk.
    4. Open the Startup Disk control panel and select the FireWire disk.
    5. Restart the computer.The computer should now start up from the FireWire drive. If it does not, make sure you are using third-party drivers that support FireWire booting. Also ensure that the FireWire disk mounts to the Finder desktop and that the system software was properly installed. If it still does not mount, contact the vendor of the device to ensure it can be used as a startup disk.

After I power on the laptops, its remain white screen with folder which had question mark in center


Hi, it means the machine can`t find the OS to load. So it means you`re more likely having an issue with your hard drive. To determine that, follow these instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1440 and then post how it goes.

How do i back up a power book g4? What application do I need to do the back up?


Suchisart,
If you want a stand alone backup solution, you can download a free program called "Carbon Copy Cloner" and purchase a USB 2.0 external hard drive. You can use the CCC software to backup the entire contents of your Powerbook's hard drive or just selected files to the external USB hard drive.

If your Powerbook is unable to boot into OS X and you need to recover the files that are on the internal hard drive, you can boot the Powerbook into "Target Disk Mode" and transfer the files via firewire cable to another Mac. To do this do the following.
  1. With both Macs off connect them with a firewire cable.
  2. Turn on the Powerbook and hold down the "T" during startup.
  3. Once the large icon shows up on screen your in "TDM".
  4. Turn on the other Mac and login to your account.
  5. The Powerbook's hard drive should mount on your desktop.
  6. You'll be able to transfer your files from the Powerbook's hard drive just like you would an external hard drive, thumb drive, etc.

Don't forget to vote and leave us some feedback. :)
Thank you,

Blue screen after logging into adminstrator but no desktop icons?


Start with OS X cd/dvd. put the cd in and restart, hold down C after you turn the laptop on. when the disk starts up, try to repair the hard drive (verify and repair permissions). I'd also try getting your hands on Disk Warrior, which can fix lots of hard drive problems. You might have to reinstall OS X though if it's bad. If you have to do this, you may want to upgrade the harddrive because that might be what caused the problem in the first place. If you go to repair permissions and it finds problems and repairs them. Try it again. If it finds problems the second time, you may have a bad hard drive. See how my answer is longer than your question. It really helps to provide details and specifics if you want a good answer. just keep that in mind if you reply. thanks. good luck.

The hard drive powers up but wont connect


Is the FW drive have been formatted? You may need to run the Disk Utility on your Mac to use the external drive. Make sure you choose FAT 32 as the format option if you want to use the drive in both Mac and Windows machines.

MAC G4 won't boot - Blue screen appears


Hi Sorry to hear you are having troubles,You will need a firewire 400 cableOK, first thing you must do is reboot the eMac in TARGET mode, this means it will be recognized as an external disk. To get the eMac in TARGET mode, you must be sure the eMac is turned OFF and has a functioning keyboard connected.Power on the eMac and very very rapidly press the ( T ) key on the keyboard, be sure the caps lock button is not pressed. If all goes well, you will see the firewire logo appear larger than life on the screen.( If you are unable to get into TARGET mode, it is highly probable that the mother board of the internal hard drive is damaged and preventing the eMac from entering TARGET mode, sorry, that's the end of the line..)Once you enter TARGET mode on the eMac, connect the firewire cable to your G4 PowerBook, you can do this either while it is running or when it is off and then turn it on.
You should see the volume of your eMac internal hard drive appear on the PowerBook desktop...sometimes you need to open Disk Utilities and repair or mount the drive manually.If this all works well, copy the required files directly to your PowerBook...After that, power off both machines, disconnect them and reboot the eMac using a CD or DVD to reformat and reinstall a new system.

your hard drive is not being seen when the computer boots. If you have the Install DVD that came with it, follow these steps:

1. Start up from the MacBook Pro Mac OS X Install Disc 1 DVD that came with the computer (hold down the “C” key during restart).

2. When the Installer opens, from the Installer menu under Utilities, select Disk Utility.

3. When the Disk Utility opens, on the left hand side, all disk and volumes are listed. If you don’t see the internal hard drive, the system is not recognizing it. Skip to the next step. Otherwise, select the internal hard drive icon and follow the instructions under the First Aid tab to verify
the hard disk, and repair if needed. Restart the computer.

if it still doesn't see it, your hard drive is most likely dead and needs to be replaced. Go to an apple store or call AppleCare if it is still under warranty. If not, you need to get a 2.5" SATA hard drive to replace it, and then reinstall the OS on the new hard drive. If you have a friend with a mac, you can try booting your computer to target firewire mode (holding T when you press the power button until a biohazard-like symbol appears) and connecting it to an already booted mac (your computer will appear as a hard drive, and you can try to copy whatever stuff is possible onto the other computer to back it up)
