Beats me.  I don't know.  That G5 works with my external backup HD.  I  
could start the G5 by starting up and holding the open CD drive  
button.  It's weird, but it worked a few times.
I used DW and TT, but no problems are found.  He's working a little  
slower than normal.  The sound is normal.  The Mac works as long as I  
leave it on.  For the moment I can restart without problems.  For how  
long I don't know.  I'm not moving my HD back to the G5 right now.   
I'll do more tests.
