'scuse het engels, maar het is weekend :)
I’ve got one of them dodgy dual usb iBooks, it’s a 15 gig model, 600 mhz, came with mac osx 10.1, was on the cheap from Dixons a few years back.
The serial number is valid for a free logicboard replacement, according to the Apple website.
It’s run OK for the last two or so years, has fallen asleep sometimes when it shouldn’t have, and the battery pretended to be dead for three months or so, but then I went out and bought (bought) panther.
What a palava, a full run down of the install can be found here… http://forums.macnn.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=219048
Situation now is this, weird purple screen after booting up unless the option key is pressed.
It’s like the iBook can’t find the OS for some reason.
Question, could this be attributed to the logicboard? I don’t want to take it to for what could be costly repairs (Groningen, Bossina), when the thing is running on OS 10.1 and OS 9 fine, and since I’ve already blown my “vacantiegeld” on Panther and iLife.
Then again it isn’t nice to think that there is a problem waiting to emerge at the least opportune moment.
Your forum has the most in depth probing of the problem I could find on the web btw, kudo’s.
