I have a live usb image that seems to run on my lenovo thinkpad that I'd like to get to work on an old iBook (Model A1007). Things I have tried so far
1) Just turning the computer on with the usb in the usb drive. 2) Holding the option key while restarting the computer 3) Following these instructuions: http://ben-collins.blogspot.com/2010/08/booting-your-ibook-g4-from-usb-stick.html
but replaced all instances of "txbi" to "yaboot"
In this case I booted while holding down
Cmd + Option + O + F
This brings up a circle with a line through it icon. Maybe this means it failed to boot from the usb device so I tried the alternative walk though after a restart and the same key combenation:
> dev usb0
dev usb0 ok
ff9a6d98: /disk@1 ok
> dev disk@1
> dev disk@1 ok
pwd /pci@f2000000/usb@18 ok
boot /pci@f2000000/usb@18/disk@1:,\\yaboot can't open :/pci@f2000000/usb@18/disk@1:,\\yaboot
Does this suggest a problem with my usb drive? Or perhaps I am doing something wrong with this attempted way of booting from a usb. Any suggestions?
