Mike’s site no longer has the information. I looked through all my shit and cannot find anything anywhere. I have a Yosemite G3 and NEED to figure this shit out rather than randomly putting tiny-ass jumpers in random places all afternoon. Any help (Google is a god damn lost cause) greatly appreciated.

Thanks! :g3: :g3: :g3: :g3:

WEll well well, I found something, apparently I had a copy of the install PDF file which mentioned setting jumpers to ooXoXXoXooo (where X is a jumper and o is no jumper) which sort of booted until it wouldn’t boot anymore. Had to swap motherboards with an old Xlr8 G4 ZIF upgrade @ 500MHz to get it going again; something flakey started happening with the other motherboard such that it wasn’t able to boot from any connected HDs or CDROM drive. Not sure what I screwed up but I would love to get the 1GHz G4 ZIF running again. Just want to get the old Unreal Tournament/Deus Ex/Quake 1/Quake 2/OS9 machine back running again.

B&W jumpers...
Code:
CPU Speeds Listed Assume 100 MHz (default) Bus Speed

    (S = Jumper present or "Set", " " = no jumper)

            Multiple     | 4 | 3 | 2 | 1 |
            - -----------+---+---+---+---+
            3x   300 MHz |   | S | S | S |

Beige jumpers...
The numbers in bold are based on the 66 MHz bus, which seems to give the most reliable operation. CPU speeds are based on bus speed and multiplier.

Bus Speed Jumpers On Multiplier Jumpers On CPU speeds
60 MHz P6 P7 P8 3x P2 P3 P4 180/200/210/225/236/250
66.67 MHz P5 P6 P7 3.5x P4 210/233/245/263/276/292
70 MHz P5 P6 P8 P9 4x P2 P4 240/ 266/280/300/315/333

Yes, Sonnet settings for Yosemite (Blue & White) G3, not Beige (Gossamer). I think that the Beiges were easier to manage…… well then again I did have four of them going with overclocked G4s at one time, a couple with Peltiers. I had no life back then though. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :bonk: :bonk:

Meanwhile the motherboard/HD combo is now telling me that firmware is screwed up beyond repair… I may have done cmd+opt+O+F too many times. Surely the remedy is to leave everything unplugged for three months, then plug back in and try again? :fishsmack: :fishsmack: :badteeth: :o :g3:

If you can get into open firmware you could issue a reset-nvram followed by reset-all to wipe any unfortunate changes. Although if your CPU needs OF changes you'd have to re-implement them before the system will boot. Though I never really did much mucking with B&Ws, I jumped from a 9600 to a QuickSilver, so my memory may be fuzzy.
