Not sure I think it is os x .. on the boot up it says something about gs powermac 8.1
when I held power and held shift key .. it came up with what looked like a command prompt ..
apple powermac 8, 1 5.2.2f2
type mac-boot or shut-down
when I typed mac-boot it went back to the boot failure screen
OK so the first thing that comes up is
panic ... unable to find driver for this platform .. powermac 8.1
Unfortunately I cannot find it -- how can I get another ?
Pressing and holding the Command-Option-P-R keys at the same time results in a reboot attempt .. i get the apple logo but then with a noise binggg followed up with the same screen as before that says unable to find driver for this platform -
The serial number is XXXXX
holding command - o - f did not get me a command prompt .. only went back to original screen re .. no driver
I did both of the resets words when I went back to the method that gave me the command prompt and inserted those commands instead of mac-boot but still go no boot after reset
Thanks for all your effort .. Michael
