Mac Pro 3.1 wont boot.
Im trying too fix a mac pro 2008 3,1 3.0 8core. When its starts up it gives a kernel panic.
My first thoughts where that it had a bad hdd. I plugged it in another mac as a slave disk en got all sort of damage reports when using disk utility.
Internet recovery mode
Also when i tried internet recovery it wil not instal en fresh osx.
I got out the old hdd and plugged a new (old) one in. Which was completely erased and format journaled extended.
So ive tried to boot it with a dvd system disk os x lion (command +c) but its eventually gets a hickup and unfortunately shows a round sign with a stipe. Swap out the dvd drive with another one. same thing. new disk, same thing.
next thing i've tried was to make it boot with a instal usb el captain. But when i startup with alt/option pressed it doesn't recognize the usb. and that sucks big time.
Ive cleaned the whole system which was pretty dusty and dirty.
I'm not a mac specialist and little bit out of options. I just cant get this sucker to run which i really want!!
Is this a good question?
