    wow... well the only option I see... is ship me your g5 and I will love it even in its crippled state.


    ship it to apple, take it to an apple store, or call the support line

    If you're having problems like that you should definitely be contacting Apple right away. I have the same G5 and it boots up in about 30 seconds with only 512MB of RAM. I have had the fan problem too but after doing a clean install of Panther I haven't had the problem.

    You may want to try reducing your ram and trying to boot then. it could be that one the ram's isn't functioning currectly. Try it out.

    faster u get it to apple the better, if yer not really experienced with trouble shooting.

    Personally, I wouldn't have let a month go by like this =P. Could be some bad hardware, could be you need to format and reinstall, but I'd do something quickly while things are under warranty.

    My dualy G5 works fine, but yeah, my best guess is that there's some bad hardware that somehow got out of the factory. There is the chance that your Panther is bad. There has been a few complaints about Panther booting.
