I need help asap one of my long time customers (I do the od bit of tech support to pay for school) Has a silver door g4 (m8570) whit a dead Power supply, do's any body know if it is replaceable whit the psu of the blue and white g3 ? I need to fix this as soon as posible as the g4 is running as a production server.
