I only tried a USB external boot drive. Tried FireWire to another Mac for target mode, but it would not see the drive....obviously because I think it's hosed. I had originally put a Snow Leopard disc in and the PB read it fine. So I think the leopard disc would/should work, as I believe that's the way I upgraded from tiger. I hope the optical is ok. I think my next step is to find an IDE drive.
