    CDRW Won't Mount - Extension Problem???

    G3 froze during 10.3.7 update - now won't boot

    OK - I'm making progress. Was able to borrow a small (6 gig) dirve with OS 9.2 and 10.2.8 on it. Switched it with the drive that the OS update froze on and .... IT WORKS!!! So all of my problems must be from a very corrupted hard drive caused by the OS X 10.3.7 update. Then, I put in my...

    G3 froze during 10.3.7 update - now won't boot

    Thanks... I'll think about that. I am in Upstate NY and am about 100 miles from the nearest CompUSA and I'm not sure where any other authorized Apple service providers are. I think I'll try the things I've mentioned above before giving up! And I'm really not sure if the G3 is worth putting...

    G3 froze during 10.3.7 update - now won't boot

    Thanks for your reply - I know what you mean about brain frizzle - I have it right now! Since I read your post last, I tried switching the Ram - didn't help. I have tried to boot into open firmware - to force it to boot from the CDRom drive - no go - every command I type at the open...

    Hi everyone... This is my first post here and I sure hope someone can help! I just tried to upgrade to OS X 10.3.7 via my cable modem. During the process the upgrade froze at 50% of the installation. Now I am dead in the water. Can't boot into safe mode. Can't boot from a cd. The...
