Thanks a TB for that info. I suspected something in that direction, and have now moved on to the next bright idea - that won't work for me. I would really like my pismo to run OS Tiger - I have the CD-rom discs that originally came with my blackbook (which has been upgraded to leopard; but those discs I don't have...).
I have tried to boot the pismo from the install disc (using either the internal SUPER (not combo
!) drive that I bought from pbmedic or using the "new" macbook as external firewire unit).
It starts up allright, but then I get a long message about some kind of "CPU panic" -" unable to find driver for this platform; "powerbook 3,1"" - and a lot of information about backtracing chains that could be written in chinese as far as I'm concerned. It's completely non-sensial to me.
I have also tried to erase the previously installed OS (9.2.2/Leopard) - same thing happens.
As far as I know the pismo should be able to run with Tiger - but perhaps not with the G4 processor installed??? PLEASE, someone, help me on this one - the week-end is almost over in Denmark, and I really need to go to work tomorrow...
(well, there's another end next week, I guess - but it's hard to let these problems sit).
And I need to decide wether it's worth the effort (and money) to change the super drive once again.
