Hello, Again.

Yes, I had the 10.2.x installed, I made a clean Instalation of 10.3 (after a few days, I a saw my StartUp Problem), I should to make another clean installation with 10.2.8.  The 10.2.8 run fine, it's my current version of OS X.

But, I want to install the 10.3 again, but I don't want to have again the StartUp Problem.

Can you make a restart of you G4 Yikes with OS X 10.3 (Panther) and Press:

Apple Key + Option Key + O + F, and I write down the info of your BootRom:

The Mine is:

Apple PowerMac1,2 1.2f2 BootROM

Open Firmware 3.1.1

I would like to see, the version of yours BootRom.

Thanks for your time.

None of the OSs have ever given me a bad time, with the exception of the Aladdin DVD which almost killed my startup drive when I tried to play it in OS 9.
