My first time here.. So hello all, nice to be here :d
I've been having a look about the board for a solution to a problem, but wondered if anybody could shed some light on a boot problem i have with an elderly iMac g3 indigo.
Basically I've tried zapping the pram, i am holding c down when trying to boot my os9 cd and all i get is a little icon with a '?' then a smiley face in an os 9 style blue/purple folder icon. This icon keeps continually flashing.
The machine will however boot my os x cd and i can get into disc utility, but can't obviously install anything because i need to run the iMac firmware update.
Ultimately I would like to use os x on to the machine.
Incidentally I don't believe there is a problem with the HDD becuase the os x disc utility can erase and format the drive okay.
Pram battery? logic board?
