Finally...even if this logic board swap did work. Since you would be using non-Apple hardware...it's illegal (against Apple's EULA) to install the Mac OS on it. This basically means it's a "hackintosh"...which we do not discuss at Mac-Forums!

I advise skipping this project...and just purchase a used MacBook.

I researched it and found that this board is apple made, and designed for my particular G4. You can see what I mean at Apple Powerbook G4 M8407 Intel Logic Board 820-1263-A | eBay which is where I'm looking to buy this particular item.
