Help!! Problems With iMac G5 and Lubuntu 16.04 LTS


Hi, i'm new to this forum. I am new to linux as well. Here is what happened with my iMac G5 PPC:

I have a 2004-2006 iMac G5 with a PPC processor. I had it running on Mac OS X 10.5.8 for a while until it reported a fatal error saying the hard drive failed. Earlier before that i noticed the symptoms like when I left it on sleep mode, it wouldn't wake up so I had to shut it down and restart it. later I opened disk utility to make sure everything was all right. That's when it said in red letters: 'your hard drive has reported a fatal error. please back up your files as soon as possible.' And then it never booted Mac OS X again. I decided to try running Linux on it after it's hard drive got replaced. First I tried Ubuntu MATE and then I tried Xubuntu and then Lubuntu. I found out Lubuntu was the right fit for me. It seemed quite slow, though it was an old computer. Then I found out the real problem why it was slow: When I was trying out my 101 Linux distros I didn't notice that I forgot to untick the box saying to 'make a partition between operating systems.' I found out I had a lot of partitions with all my operating systems so I deleted them all and left only the ones I needed. Later after that when I shut it down one time, it wouldn't boot again. When I tried to boot it, it would ask me to press L for linux like any other time then it would say it was booting linux. Then it said 'Please wait, loading kernelů' like normal but it never loaded. It would just sit there saying that and then it's fans would rev up to full speed. That's all it would do. If anybody knows what this means or how to fix this, that would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your time!
Nikolai.
