Beige G3 SCSI boot problem fix System
An anonymous reader sent a tip regarding Beige G3's with the Fast/Wide SCSI option. If you've been getting a "Can't Find...53C875" error when trying to cold-boot the machine, here's one possible solution: Boot from the OS X Install CD and use the Startup Disk utility (Control Panels) to specify the desired startup disk.

I can't verify either the problem or the solution, but thought this may be of interest to some of you. If this is way off base, please let me know and I'll revise or remove the tip.

Problems installing OS X from SCSI CD Drive in beige G3
Authored by: juanfc on Jan 26, '02 02:12:15PM

When run the OS X Installer from the Plextor SCSI that I put there substituting the original Sony IDE CD drive, the system hangs in the first starting dialog (spinning the mouse colour ball). After that I need to reset the PRAM because it seems to be corrupted.
