I am attempting to startup a Mac G5 (Dual 1.8), but can only get a far as the gray screen with a flashing ?/Finder Icon. Machine will power up and fans will spin at max. Have tried to boot in various modes (safe mode, single user mode) with no success. Have tried to boot from G5 software install dvd (10.3) with no success. Any advice would be appreciated ;-)
