Hi All,

G3 400mhz / 320MB /orginal 6GB HD/

Having troubles getting rid of this one:

- On startup I get the folder with the flashing question mark. So that means it can find the HD or any System Folder. But then it thinks and finds the HD.

- I have dumped Preferences- Finder, Apple Menu, MacOS, System
- I have Z-Pram
- I have check the jumpers on the drive
- I have dumped the System Folder and performed a clean install

What is next just try a new hard drive?

-matt

Did you check the Startup disk control panel? It could just be that it's searching for the installation cd to start from...
