Repair the sleep light module

My Power Book G3 prismo it has a new disc 80GB. I did change because the old one it was root by an accident of the first partition. I decided to use the old one in a macally cage. And I did introduce a new 512mb of ram, the second one. But if I can continue using as a root disc Apple Fireware media, why i can not install de 10.5 original system that I did buy for it. A flash question appears when I hold down the C key and the sleep light has been dissapear.

Sorry about my English, I am from Cadiz Spain

And thank you a lot for the oportunity, I am so interesed in this lap top because I began understanding many things whit it.

Commentaar:

by the way, I think the title of your question is misleading - it seems like your actual question is "why won't OS X 10.5 boot on Pismo"

Hello!

OS X 10.5 unfortunately cannot be installed on a G3 machine. The minimum requirement is a PowerPC G4 processor.

According to Mactracker, the maximum OS for the Pismo is 10.4.11.

the others have already answered your main question, that 10.4.11 is the latest OS that will run on your Powerbook G3

- but I just wanted to comment that I got many years of good use out of my Pismo, even though it needed a few repairs along the way it is still working (now almost 10yrs old!). In fact, I used it temporarily as my main home computer last month while my iMac was in for warranty repairs.

my point is that if your Pismo hardware is still in working shape, install OS X 10.4.11 on it and you can keep using it for many things. it's a bit slow by today's standards but otherwise I think it's a great machine.

Ok, Hello

An update disk can be a solution for the root situation?. No Iam using the powerbook only via fireware, for see it and ethernet for transfering and contacting. I think is thanks to the apple share program and using the terminal as I do. Some of the caracteristics of one, like the firmware, are in the other and this is so good, in my opinion. But is posible to install an update of this drives from another computer? The fact is that now I can´t use the computer with every programs, and of course "root" maybe there is a developer solution that I ignore In the bin or sbin store (something related with standalone archives to regenerate the power start up. But the cuestion of the light, I think it depens of the electric system, I realy don´t know. Thanks! and of course if I kmow some thing, I wil let you know.

Again sorry about my english, and thanks a lot.
