Bah, You have a revision 1 as well. Don't put a hard drive larger than 40GB in there, or any drive config that goes over 32GB actually. Mine triple boots Tiger, 9.2, and 8.6

yeah I was reading on that now I just will upgrade the ram to max I have a video card around I think a ati Radeon 7000 64mb PCI and the hard drive now is 12gb I will see if I have one 40 around if not check ebay or ther place. what other thing beside the revision is bad on this models?
thanks for all your help

Well, its the bad chip in that revision. Other than that and that the revision 1 units shippped with a 25MHz slower GPU, thats it.

kasey do you have an idea where can I get a 20 or 30gb hard drive for this g3?
Comment by Kasey Smith on December 3, 2010 at 4:56pm
check out LEMswap for one, you could probably find ones used at a thrift store or ebay as well though.

ok now I'm little confuse sorry guys for my ignorance, I was reading on the rev 1 issue and have a few Q?
so R1 or A g3 can't handle a second hard drive? that is if I want to run max osx or any os?
if I only want to run mac os 9.2 is possible to add just the 1 hard dives bigger than 40gb?
Comment by Kasey Smith on December 3, 2010 at 10:12pm
Revision 1, not A. And its for all OSes, its a problem of the drive controller. I think you can run dual drives if they total under 32GB, right now i have a 32GB and a 6GB and its stable. Also, this isn't like the iMac issue where OSX just won't install. This is where it errors during install or installs but then crashes later.
