    I have a Powerbook5.5 with an installed and working 3.13.
    But I would like to upgrade to 3.14, but booting from the 3.14 cd does not recognize the Powerbook harddrive within the MOS installer (or HDinstall, or unitcontrol). Does anyone have a clue ?

    Still the original drive from 2004 or something you upgraded to recently?

    Had old drives fail to the point where they would still boot&work but fail to register when trying to partition.
    If you still have a 3.13 CD at hand you might want to try if that show the same issue.

    Booting from the 3.13 CD shows the IDE drive, and I can install 3.13, which I did yesterday.
    The 120GB drive, I think it is original one. But no problems before, with OSX yesterday.
    The machine did not move, the harddrive boots normally, no thicking or slow response.

    Could be a timing problem under 3.14.

    Try to boot from OF:

    Code:

    boot hd:,boot.img BD=<your Systembootdevice> ed=init

    Do not use ":" at bootdevicename. Boot.img has to be on 1st partition of HD (HFS-Filesystem)
