Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook
What is happening is the mach kernel is hanging during bootup. This is likely caused by a kernel panic. Boot-time kernel panics are caused by the following things:
Go to Installer menu (Panther and earlier) or Utilities menu (Tiger) and launch Disk Utility.
Select your HDD (manufacturer ID) in the left panel.
Select First Aid in the Main panel.
(Check S.M.A.R.T Status of HDD at the bottom of right panel, and report if it says anything but Verified)
Click Repair Disk on the bottom right.
If DU reports disk does not need repairs quit DU and restart.
If DU reports errors Repair again and again until DU reports disk is repaired.
If DU reports errors it cannot repair you will need to use a utility like Tech Tool Pro or Disk Warrior
If you can make it this far, it is likely that your hard disk and the majority of your computer hardware are functioning correctly and your issue is software related.
