Unable to find drivers for this platform?

I'm getting this driver error, but I just bought it from someone that lives in my apartments so I don't have any idea what it could be. Here is a link to the pic if the error message if anyone can help me.

Looks like a kernel panic to me. Possible causes: bad RAM, corrupted operating system, bad hard drive, or logicboard problem. The installed Operating System has all the native drivers the machine needs. There is no need to update the drivers.

Do you have access to the grey recovery disks the system came with? If not give Apple a call to order a set.

I do agree with Bernie you don't need any drivers. As it looks now you have a corrupted OS which could be as simple as re-installing the OS or the HD will need replacement. Until you can startup the system off a recovery disk or an external HD you won't know which.

No I don't have the disks that came with it. I will see if I can come up with them. If it is the HD will I be able to put a Barracuda 7200.7 80GB S2ATA in it? I already have one, so I was hoping it would work in this one. Thank you both for your help!


The G4 models had a Ultra ATA/100 HD interface not SATA so your SATA Barracuda won't work here, Sorry
