    First of all, this is not a boundary value problem. This an initial value problem.

    Second, the expression you got for y'' is wrong.

    if y" is wrong, then why does everything else check out? I double-checked it with my Ti-nSpire CAS and with Wolfram Alpha

    I am sorry, I did not realize that you changed the order of terms in y''. It is correct. And I do not see any error in what follows.
