Hi guys

Recently Ive come across of one of powermacs which had no hard drive and all other parts are present.

I have small problem.

Have hard drive but windows was on it.
How to convert it to apple standards so I can install OS x on it.

Disk Utility
Select drive
Select erase
Format drive and use "Apple Partition Map" under opotions on the bottom
Format to Mac OSX extended

Edit: PowerMac G5 has IDE for the optical drives. SATA for the normal drives.
