SSD won't boot on a PowerBook G4 with Tiger 10.4.6 any ideas?

Well, my PATA SSD arrived last week and last night I installed it on my Powerbook. BUT, it just won't boot, no matter what!!

Tried to reformat with Disk Utility then install Tiger 10.4.6 which went fine untill restart, then it wouldn't boot.

Tried clone the Tiger disk to it (saw it on the net), but it wouldn't boot.

Tried to use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my HDD to it, but it wouldn't boot.

There doesn't seems to be anything wrong to it, I can write, read, reformat and do pretty much anything using it as a external USB drive, but no matter what I do it refuses to boot.

Is it because I'm installing Tiger and should install Leopard or am I doing anything wrong..?

BTW: the hardware part was a breeze thanks to a printed copy of the iFixit guide. :)

As often happens on those situations, it was the simplest of things: jumper settings!

When I uninstalled the HDD it didn't have a jumper (cable select) so I figure I should take it of the SSD as well, right?

Well, no! After I tried everything I listed above I was ready to give it up then I thought 'what the heck, let's put that jumper back and see what happens' and what happened is that my Powerbook is up and running with it's brand new SSD. :D

BTW: should I try Leopard or stay with Tiger and why..?

Thanks! :)

How did you set the jumper? Master, Slave, Cable-Select?

Yes but first max your memory. As to why, it will give you access to a more modern browser. Good luck.

My memos are on max 2gb PC2-3200 and as for browsers I already have TenFourFox and a Flash 'fix' for Safari.

I guess I would only go to Leopard if it'll make it faster - knowing that I went back to Tiger because Leopard was just refusing to work, even Finder would halt the machine...
