I just recently got a Powermac G4 and was looking to completely switch to windows, selling my PC (I haven't yet). I wanted to pull my 200gb hd, formatted to NTFS with WindowsXP/Vista Beta installed as a dual boot on it.
I plugged it into the slave part of the IDE chain and took the jumper out (as the chart said that no jumper = slave), and I can't get the mac to read it.
I looked in another forum and it said something about checking that it even recognizes it by pressing OPTIONS at startup, only the current mac HD showed up. I tried replacing the jumper, no dice there either.
When I boot up the Mac with the windows HD plugged in, it has the apple logo and the circular spinny thing, then it shows a crossed out circle with the spinny circle.
Considering there isn't a bios and I'm unfamiliar with everything, how do I boot to the Mac OSX cd to possibly get to the disk utility? Or if that will even help, considering it doesn't even recognize my drive.
I'm not too familiar with mac's, so I'm not really sure what to do. If someone could get back to me on it through this post, I'd highly appreciate it. Thanks.
