    My 10.1 full install disk arrived today. I tried installing it, and it ate one of my G4s. Real great software.

    Troll? If you want help then try posting something constructive, software doesn't just "eat" computers for no reason.

    I dont want help, Im just complaining.
    And the computer wont even turn on anymore. Ive tried resetting it, making sure its plugged in, trying different USB mice and keyboards, swapping ram sticks, different moniters, zapping the pram, different graphics cards, swapping harddrives, disconnecting the DVD drive, and none of those helped.
    It was working perfectly up until I installed 10.1.

    It turns out that the G4 was fine. When I was about to boot up after installing 10.1, the wall socket died at exactly the same time. Freaky coincidence, no?

    Not to be rude, but here you are trashing 10.1 before checking the obvious, even in Apple's trouble shooting handbooks (I think checking cord and wall socket is the first step when the computer won't start...) :rolleyes:.
