. I actually am a PC technician (Windows based) Well I make my living on these machines I am a HUGE Apple/ Mac fan at my company I ran across 3 iBook G4's 2 are the 12 inch models 1 is a 14 inch, All running the Mac OS X Panther. One has a blown power supply one has a bad cd and hard drive one as a fried drive. I took the one with the bad cd drive broke the password (with instruction from your site THANK YOU!!). And have been able to play with this awesome machine. Then I got the great idea of swapping the working iBook G4 with the bad cd drive, to the 14 inch iBook, I figured it would work with no problems. Well I was wrong. when it boots there is a folder and a then a mac icon flashing. Nothing else. So I figured I would reach out to see how if possible to get this to boot normal.
