I'm about to do this
Authored by: greyhawk on Mar 11, '04 01:58:08AM

I have had various sucess/failure depending on the Beige system. I have a MT with a G4/466, a Raedon 7000, and an Orange FireWire/USB2, and a G3/266 DT, and a G3/300 DT. I spent several attempts to load a fresh Jag install on the 266DT, as I was having lockups without warning, and seemingly without reason. I never could get that system working consistently, even after the following process, which worked on the G3/300.

I built a clean Jag install on a firewire disk (using a TiBook), then used BootCD creator to build a boot CD with CarbonCopyCloner on it. This is where it got interesting, I had to do a 10.2 base install on the G3 internal disk (presumably to install something into the disk), and only after that I could boot from my built CD and Clone the firewire disk onto the G3 internal disk. Just booting from the CD and Cloning the firewire disk didn't work. It's been fine ever since, even installing the Software Updates as they have come out. It's my iTunes music server.

I'd still like to know what was (is) causing the freezes. The 266DT still freezes, even without any cards, and only one 256MB stick. (Yes, I completely reformatted the HD)
