Now that I understand I have one of the troublesome PTP250 motherboards used in the last run and you all have solved the problem, I hope you can help with my decision to upgrade. I wanted to do your G4 upgrade but it sounds like that is not possible with my motherboard at this time. I will settle for a G3 upgrade at this time but will the XLR8 work with the Adaptic SCSI card I have installed --the adaptic 2940UW and if it will work what firmware should I have installed. As an after thought --will OSX run with the G3 upgrade.

The PTP 250 are not really troublesome, there were tweaked by Power CC and the documentation was buried. It took XLR8 a little reverse engineering to get the Carrier card the work, but that was a long time ago.

The Adaptec card will work as well with the upgrade as it works anywhere.

If you get the G3 upgrade get the Carrier ZIF not the MPe ZIF.
