Machine works fine otherwise but will not go into TDM and I'm dreading having to transfer everything to a new MacPro manually! Anybody give me some pointers? Holding 'T' down on startup but machine always does a normal boot. Tried with and without new firewire cable attached, changed keyboards and mouse... and to prove the point I started up the old Quicksilver G4 in TDM (same OS) no problem. Can anybody tell me *** gives?

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), G5 Tower
