Hey guys, I'm working on an iBook (1.33 GHz 768 meg of RAM) for a friend. The Apple sound and grey screen come up, it's loading... then shutdown. I have a Mac Mini G4, so I busted out a Tiger install disk. I went into the startup manager and selected for the computer to boot from the 10.5.8 install that was on the hard drive. Loads right up. If I don't tell the computer to boot from the DVD, the same thing will happen and it will just shut down. If I load Tiger and tell it to boot from the hard drive, it will boot. I've done this twice now to confirm it was not a fluke of some kind.
I updated the software after I changed the time (was set for 1971 ?) I've also reset the PMU trying a few different ways. I've pulled the battery and held the power button for 5 seconds. Still same results.
I really don't want to wipe the OS.
Any ideas on how I can get this working correctly?
Thanks in advance!
Running disk utility. Fixing permissions. There seems to be a lot of errors so far...
