The hard drive in my iMac G5 died a few years ago.  I'm trying to bring the computer back to life.  I replaced the hard drive but none of the drives, including CD and USB, are recognized on the iMac in startup mode.  I formatted the drive on another machine - it was recognized and the whole process went very smooth.  I put it into the iMac and it's not recognized at all - nor are the CD drives or USB - which means I can't boot from the install disks (os x 10.3.9).  Option-C doesn't work at all.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks!
