Installing OS 10.2 on Beige G3
Authored by: eoberle on Sep 14, '03 09:08:27PM

I'm reading this thread months after the fact, after I had the exact same problem: a hang on the 10.2.3 install disk when trying to put it on a beige g3. I finally got things to work by putting an ide card into the g3 and plugging its main drive into it. (I used one of the old Ultratek 66 RAID cards, but I imagine just about anything would do). So I guess that lends at least some credence to the OF script being corrupt.

Just a couple of questions, for those still interested:
a.) does it do this with the 10.2.0 disk? or Just the 10.2.3?
b.) I vaguely remember that the two ide interfaces are different, and perhaps I mixed the two up. Since right now I have the system working, I don't want to go through another install, but I just thought maybe one is a low speed ide that doesn't support modern hard drives.
c.) I'm using a revision A motherboard/rom....has anybody had this problem with a rev. b through d board?

Just some thoughts and a workaround....

Eric
