    My G5 won't boot anymore, it halts at grey screen and if I then wait some minutes (about 2) the fans spins up and become very loud!

    The same if I boot from a MorphOS 3.11 cd.

    And the same with a Lubunto live dvd, I boot with in the firmware prompt with "live video=ofonly".
    The last lines are "Caling quiesce...." and then "returning from prom_init", then after some minutes the fans spins up;(

    I can get into the bootmenu and firmware.

    What could be broken?

    I had similar issues when one of CPU modules was broken. If you're brave enough you could try swapping the CPU modules (of course thermal calibration is needed afterwards).
