Currently Being ModeratedJan 15, 2011 4:19 AM (in response to ravemeister92)two thoughts:
the hard drive if pulled from an older Mac is most likely not formatted to be acceptable to that intel mac pro. Example, if the hard drive was pulled from a G5 tower then that hard drive must be reformatted.
Secondly, the "dark curtain" means something is not compatible with the Mac Pro. If the video card is a third party add-in then suspect it. Also any third party add-in can cause a kernel panic such as an optical drive, incompatible ram. Maybe you need to review or interview the previous owner. Ask the proper questions and tart from there.
Take that Mac pro back to its original state as best you can then do the evaluation.MacPro 2.8 8 core Xeon with 5.2 terabytes includes an SSD X25M, Mac OS X (10.6.5), LG Blu Ray optical external
Took a chance with a second hand Nvidia 7300 video card I found for 50$ and my problem is solved, boots up no problem.
Thank you for your help.Mac Pro Quad 2.66, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 640gig hd, 5gigs ram
