Just looking around
Posts: 7 from 2018/7/17
I'm trying to do a new install of 3.14 from CD on a Powermac G5 7,3 with a Maxtor 120 GB hard drive. The drive boots Mac OS X version 10.5.8 fine. When I try to install 3.14 from CD, the hard drive is not recognized by MorphOS. It says no drives found.
I gave up with it and disconnected the Maxtor and hooked up a Kingston SV100S2 64 gb SSD. The system sees the drive and during the install and automatic partition portion, the system hangs every time. Sometimes it will show the boot and other partition on the drive being set up, others it just shows the boot partition before it hangs. After a reboot to retry, the drive name is back to what it was before the install attempt with one partition.
I have also tried to use the tools on the MorphOS CD in prefs to format the drives and they start out formatting but quit freeze before the drives are formatted and nothing appears changed on the drives after a reboot.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to try next?
Thanks in advance.
