Last night when I installed Panther on my Rev.A iMac and when I rebooted I waited and waited and then the hard drive made beeping and humming noises that were not usual. It also does not fully boot. HELP A POOR SAP WITH HIS iMac!

What was on the iMac before?

What was on the iMac before? Tell us what process you did to do the upgrade. Certain steps might make all the difference in a successful install or not.

what i did

I first installed 9.1. Then 9.2.2. Then 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and then 10.3 all in the same day. T did not install anything else. Could it have been the Hard Drive update that I should have done?

Did you do the FirmWare updat

Did you do the FirmWare update? That is mandatory before going to X. YOu might have to do a few tricks to get it installed, but if it hasn't had it it'll cause these sorts fo problems.
