As far as the files go, it's important to know where you have all of yours stored. If you are using a firewire connection directly to your new PC, you can us the migration assistant to copy your files using the steps here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4413#1

This will only move your files generally, you will need to locate disks or downloads to reinstall your programs. Also keep in mind that some of your programs may be discontinued or outdated, so make sure you have your files, and keep your old computer around long enough to check your files and make sure you don't need to use the old computer to convert them to some other format.

Once you transfer the files using the migration assistant.... TEST THEM!!....you do not want to wipe your drive on the old machine only to find out that the files were corrupted somehow.

After you are sure you have everything off of your old machine, you can use the Disk Utility to securely wipe the old drive.....in this case I'd say a 7 pass erase will be good for what you need.

If your old Mac does not have this option you could use a bootable disk like "Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN)" to securely erase the drive. With DBAN, you burn a CD that you then use to boot your machine and perform the erase.

Good Luck! Remember: TEST YOUR DATA before you wipe your old drive.

Can't print from HP 2540 aio to my Imac PowerPc G5 OS X 10.5.8 The Imac keeps telling that the printer is offline.


A quick look at the HP web site for this printer shows that it only supports Max OS X 10.6 and later. These versions only support the intel processor based macs. Your PowerPC mac is, unfortunately, obsolete as far as Apple and the peripheral manufacturers are concerned and is not supported.

Hi there,
I have always understood that FW 400 is not fully compatible with FW800. Although slower, does it have a USB connection on the disk caddy to test it?

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.
