    "Each model in the Macintosh Server G4 series architecturally is identical to a model in the Power Macintosh G4 series, but the configurations are different and the servers shipped with pre-installed Apple server software."

    So indeed, going by this, each Mac Server G4 model corresponds to a MorphOS-compatible PowerMac G4 model, just with larger hard drive and more RAM (beside the irrelevant-for-MorphOS software side), which means that the whitelist mechanism incorporated into MorphOS cannot tell a PowerMac G4 model from its corresponding Mac Server G4 model.

    Regarding capacity, the limit with pre-LBA48 machines such as the PowerMac3,1 is 128 GiB, so both his 40 GB HDD and 120 GB SSD should be fine. Regarding interface type, I don't see how that could be the issue when MorphOS recognizes the drive (using "on-board IDE", see comment #3) and starts copying to it.
