Flashing folder


1. You need to re-install the system software.
2. Your hard disk is dead.

Try booting with a System CD/DVD to see if you can repair the System software on the hard disk.

Replace iMac g5 20 hard drive


Hi John
Try reinstalling via your macbook pro but this way round.Put the Leopard Disk into the Macbook and then start the Macbook in Target mode.on the iMac start it up and hold down the Option (or Alt) key then wait.after a short while you will be offered the HD in the MacBook and the DVD. Choose the DVD and see what happens.
What happens when you do it the other war arounds is that you are installing a startup system for the MacBook onto the HD of the G5 and not the system for the G5. The installer uses the firmware of the motherboard that is running the install to select the correct version.
Another issue is that the disk formatting may be wrong. it's unlikely seeing that you used disk utility from the DVD, but it is possible.
Let us know how you get on.

Imac G5 will not boot up.


When you boot up g5 hold down the command button (apple logo) and the letter s at the same time to but the g5 in single user mode. When it boot in single user mode type fsck -f so it can check disk on the hard drive and repair Mac OS X. After it done doing check disk type exit and see if it will boot up regularly.

MAC G5 Startup, appears Apple symbol with question mark. I tried to reinstall the OS but at the end displays disk error and it stops. Disk malfunctioning ? PDR


The question mark refers to the hard drive. The system can't find it. You'll need to get a new harddrive and reinstall the system

Booting an iMac g5 for the first time with out the system disc.


There are several reasons why you could be having this problem. You first need to know a little about the various "flavors" of Apple computers and operating systems.
There are two brands of processors: PowerPC (this is what you have) and Intel (what Apple switched to after your model).
There are also different types of system install disks: Specific Version (this is what would have came with the iMac originally and contains only the drivers for that model). Retail Version contains drivers and "Universal" processor code for all of the supported models and both types of processors.
Intel Macs format their drives differently than PowerPC macs. So, if the used drive was formatted for Intel you wouldn't be able to mount it, if the install disk that was used was Specific Model type rather than Retail type when the system was installed on your used disk, you wouldn't be able to mount it either.
The drive you have must be formatted for PowerPC and system installed from either the Specific Version or Retail install disc in order for you to mount it.

Installing new system software on G4 imac where system removed


Well the flashing question mark means its not finding a bootable device meaning the hard drive has no OS on it. You should be able to put jaguar on it if its a retail version and not one from another mac product. Let me know how this works for you
