Normally you get the choice of startup disks available but now the G5 just ignores the Alt key and starts from the disk chosen in the system prefs. Can be a major PITA under certain circumstances.

Assume you mean “Option” key rather than “Alt” unless you’re using a PC keyboard, which could be the problem. If you’re using a Mac keyboard, some of the early USB keyboards had a firmware update available that may fix your issue.
