    Hey Folks,

    Just got a 17" Power Book G4: https://everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g4/specs/powerbook_g4_1.67_17.html

    Unfortunately, the Superdrive seems to be dead.

    I've tried the boot from a USB stick option with two different USB sticks now and I'm not having any luck.

    I tried the 1st open firmware command: boot ud:,\boot.img bi umsd0:morphos.iso

    But it just gives a circle with a line through it and won't boot.

    So I tried the 2nd method where you locate your USB stick and boot with the appropriate command. All it does is this:

    Loading ELF

    DO-QUIESCE finished_

    Any ideas? Am I missing a step or not doing a step?
    17" Powerbook. MorphOS registered
