Answer to "My PowerBook G4 does not recognize it own hard drive why?"Hi I am trying to install Tiger 10.4. So my software version is OK. If the hard disk has to be formatted before the software can be installed maybe that is what is missing in my hard drive. Are the instructions on how to format my replacement hard drive? Many thanks
Answer to "My PowerBook G4 does not recognize it own hard drive why?"Hi I just replaced my old hard drive with a new 80 Gb drive (PowerBook G4 1.5 GHz). I tried to boot up with an OS 10.4 for which I have a CD. Everything goes well until it asks to identify the hard disk to install the software. There is no hard disk visible. On the other hand if I open Disk Utility, it shows the hard disk. What am I doing wrong? Much appreciate your advice.
