I did as you suggested, the only problem was it just booted up normally. So no booting from USB yet.

I'm at least happy to see some reaction from the computer. I'm fairly sure I typed it in correctly, is there be anything else I can do? EliasAndrason Yeah. This time, type in dev usb0 , and then enter ls. Ran into another snag. After "dev usb0" I'm asked to enter the password. I appreciate your quick replies! Anything I can do now?

Is that significant? Try that with two back-slashes. Tried twice with the corrected code, same deal. It flashes a screen with text but only for a fraction of a second so I can't make out the message. I have G5 Power Mac and it will not start hard drive. All I get is blank screen with apple sign in the middle. I try starting with option key pressed. It shows logo of my HD, but when I press enter it shows me blank screen with apple again with no improvement.

Any help will he greatly appreciated. I tried it with Disc Warrior and I held it for almost a full 10 minutes and it never booted. Could that mean the version of DW is not compatible or that it really takes that long? When one guy left he gave to another person here.
