Some of you might know that I just acquired a Powerbook G4 laptop. I just put in an HDD, that's clean (no partition, etc). I downloaded Ubuntu for PowerPC and burned it onto a CD (via Windows).
I power up the laptop and insert the CD, I get nothing on the LCD screen. I hear the CD spin up fast when I turn it on and then it stops, but I hear nothing afterwards. I get nothing on the screen. At first I thought the LCD might be dead, but I hooked up the laptop to a monitor via the DVI port on the side and I still get nothing on the screen.
Before all of this, the lapto did boot up and screen would turn on with the famous Mac Face logo on a folder and then with a question mark, looking for a boot partition? But now it doesnt do that. I can't even get the CD out of the drive. I hit the eject button but it doesn't pop out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
