10.2 on Beige G3 - black screen
Authored by: NovaScotian on May 27, '03 09:10:33AM

I had exactly this problem. Halfway through the first install disk the screen went black even though the second time around I moved the cursor every few minutes. The second time, I left the box alone for another 40 minutes and came back to discover that the first disk had installed anyway.

Same result with the second disk of the install, and in fact I have no way of knowing whether the second disk was installed because with a black screen I was never informed and it always asked for the second disk when rebooted. Eventually, I inserted the second disk, quit the installer, rebooted, and all worked.

I cannot boot into OS 9 however. It is on a separate SCSI drive, but the drive is not an approved Apple drive, so is not bootable, apparently.
