G3 to DPG4

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I will soon be acquiring a Dual Processor G4 sans Hard Drive. I am currently running 10.1 on a G3.

If I just put the exsisting HD into the G4 will the os automatically detect that it is a Dual Processor G4? Or do I have to do some sort of configuration change?

any thoughts?? :confused:

(oops wrong forum, this should be in Genius Bar)

I would certainly think so.

I don't see why you would have to change any configurations or anything.

Your system on thet drive will detect the dual G4's. You shouldn't have to change anything. Just plug and play.

You'll have to partition your drives in two so each CPU can use a drive.

so consensus is that the OS will automatically detect the dual processors.

The reason I asked this question is because a number of years ago I had to reconfigure a unix kernel because I changed the network from 10base2 to 10baseT.

I figured processors would probably need that to.

I will let you all know what happens when I make the switch.

And I will be sure to repartition my Hard Drives (geez why didn't I think of that)

Yeah, OSX is nice in that you don't have to recompile or specially configure the kernel.

I guess I should have put in the &lt;sarcasm&gt;&lt;/sarcasm&gt; tags.

had to start off of a system CD to reselect a startup disk...and the initial boot into X took a while....but ever since then its been great.

quite a difference between a g3 and two g4's.
