Apparently, logic board is damaged. Tried to start it recently and the button flashed and it beeped a couple times. thought it was ram so iswapped ram from my G3 into the G4. Now it goes into a loop trieing to start but doesn’t (G4). So I want to switch harddrives to get the files off. The G3 is running OS9. Possible?
