    Problem with iBook 12.1
    Powers up, doesn't boot to OS, shows Apple logo, then black square in the center of the screen. Any know what might be causing this? Thanks.

    Specs:
    27" 5K iMac, 3.3GHz, 256GB Flash Storge, 16GB memory and OS X.11.3.
    Sure you do mean an iBook? Last model is over eight years old and a PowerPC. Please supply operating system also?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Yeah, it's an older one. Runs Tiger.

    Boot from the Tiger disc and run Repair Disk and see what is reported.
