Problem re-installing new hard-driveReplaced Hard Drive on my iBook G4, but it is not recognised as a Volume when I try to install my OS 10.3.9 Installation Disc...
Answer to: Problem re-installing new hard-driveHi Dan, Sorry for delay in responding. The boyfriend of a girl I know said he would look at my problem and took my new hard drive in to work. He found that it was formatted for the Intel Chip and not the Power PC Chip that was in all iBooks. He has re-formatted it for Power PC and it has installed perfectly! Apparently the ATA 100 and ATA 130 connections are interchangeable so that was never the problem. Thought I should let everyone know about this fix for new hard drives for old iBooks. All new hard drives are probably formatted for the more recent Intel chip. Thanks for help anyway. Richard
