 Post subject: flashing question mark challenge

Hello all,

I have 2 wallstreets, one is fine and boots into os8, the other has/had os9. Niether have a cd drive or usb capability, just ethernet and one floppy drive. No os disks either. When I boot the second wallstreet all I get is the flashing disk with the questionmark.

I've tried the reset pram/ extentions/ pull the pram battery/ hold shift/ stand on your head deal and I get the same result. Is my HD shot or is there anything else I can do? I have put the HD in an external usb drive and pulled up the info on another mac so I'm guessing that the HD is still good... is there a way I can intstall the os or system file through the floppy drive?

The HD seems to be the culprit because I can swap with the os8 drive and it'll boot just fine. Sorry about the long post.

Thanks in advance.

if the hard drive boots fine when hooked up via usb it is most likely going to be a problem with the interface on the logic board.
