Question about Apple iBook G4 (Z0AZW13397068) PC Notebook
On start-up, (from HD or CD) I get the Apple symbol, no busy circle, just "panic (cpu 0 caller 0x002E54BC)unable to find driver for this platform: PowerBook6,5
and half a screenful of other stuff ending in "panic: we are hanging here...
Any ideas? Is the start-up ROM gone? motherboard? Doesn't seem like just an OS problem...HELP!
This is the message you see when a version of OS X has been installed on a Mac that needs a later version of OS X at minimum, or when the custom gray install disc for one model of Mac has been used to initialize another model of Mac.
You posted this under "iBook G4," and the platform in the error messages says "PowerBook." Provided you posted in the right place, that confirms the above diagnosis.
Initialize your iBook with the proper gray disc, or a retail OS X installation disc, and it will operate properly.
