Boot PowerPC Macs via USB 2.0 drives
Authored by: atonaldenim on Jan 13, '10 11:02:06AM
Sadly this doesn't work on a very late model Powerbook G4 15". The activity light on the USB drive never flashes, and the ud device doesn't show up in Open Firmware. I made sure the drive was partitioned APM and the System folder was blessed, I think there must just be a lack of support for USB booting in this particular hardware configuration.

Use this - boot usb0/disk:3,\\:tbxi
Look also at my other post. Powerbook has to have Apple partition, not GUID or Master Boot Record.
