In short, My G4 Quicksilver had a power surge and fried my motherboard. I needed to move my hard drives over to a new unit asap. I purchased a new exact model Quicksilver with a new 80 hard drive already installed with OS 10.4.11 on it. It worked perfectly. i then switched all the guts of the old to the new. Now no matter what combination of plugs i try the new computer cannot find the start up disk. I am working with 2 old drives both with 10.4.6 (which is what i really want) and 1 new drive. When i hold down the option key with the old drives together it gives me the flashing folder mac face screen and when i try 1 old and the 1 new it never finds anything. what can i try?
