Anyone able to steer me in the right direction? Having difficulty with this.
I have tried a number of different 9.1/9.2/9.2.2 install media, including what I think is actual restore cd for this thing, albeit burned from image. All will boot, but the installer will not run - "This program cannot be run on your computer. See the documentation for more information." Of course there is nothing in the documentation.
It previously had Leopard installed. OS 9 boot media could not see the volumes on the drive so I used Drive Utility to upgrade (downgrade) the disk driver, and then initialise the disk. No dice.
The System folder from the install cd will not boot when copied to the hard drive either.
Is the only way to install OS 9 on this thing to install some classic capable/pre-Leopard OSX first, then install OS 9 from there? I hope not...
