So, I got this case off ebay for £40, planning to build a hackintosh inside it. When it got here, however, it was fully kitted with the logic board and everything else, except the hard drive.
Naturally, first thing I did was plugged it in and fired it up. I just got an icon on the screen, a folder with a flashing ? and the Finder smiley icon. Googling around told me this means it can't find anything to boot from.
My next step was to try putting in a blank hard drive - no change, and then a hard drive with Snow Leopard* installed - still no change
* I know snow leopard doesn't run on PPC. I was just seeing if it'd try and do anything.
Its also worth noting that holding keys at startup doesn't do anything (ie it wont open disk manager etc - not sure if it needs an OS to do that maybe?) - If I hold click the drive DOES open.
So, anyone know what else I can try? I'd love to get this thing up and running if I can!
