- Well, from your point of view the seemingly completed installation has got to be a good thing.
As far as I am aware the Mac Server G4 - AGP - M7609LL/A - PowerMac3,1 - M5183 - 1843
seems to be a supported model, but I have never owned that model, so I cannot say definitively one way or the other, but from what you've said, it's completed the installation, so it does seem to be compatible.
Are you getting audio out of it as well?
Maybe worthy of mention from Everymac is that originally that Power Mac 3.1 was shipped by default with either an 18 GB Ultra2 SCSI drive (and corresponding PCI card) or a 20 GB Ultra ATA/66 hard drive. Though it could be configured with up to three Ultra2 SCSI drives at the time of purchase as a build-to-order option.
So maybe it is the capacity or interface type for the HDD that you are using that could be an issue as well.
