files from G5
on Apr 27, 2005 at 2:03:08 pm

I am having the same trouble as an earlier post ('login window starting' freezing up), it won't do anything but start from the CD. I don't want to reinstall because I don't want to loose my work. Is there anything I can do to get my work files off of the bugged G5??? please help....

thanks

I think the best thing would be to avoid stress and bring the computer to a good technician or contact Apple. Looking around for tips can be very time consuming, and most people know very little.

Hi
Is the drive visible in About This Mac>More Info>ATA when you are booted from the CD?
If not switch the Mac off, and check the cables to the drive to make sure something silly hasn't happened internally. If it is visible in About This Mac then you need to be booted off a DiskWarrior recovery CD, to try to rebuild the directory of the non-mounting drive.

If the failed drive can't be seen then maybe trying it inside another Mac will get it to come to life.
