I am looking at some B&W G3s as possible replacements for some of our beige G3 units. Everything I have been finding is updated to OS 9.2 and/or OS X. I have a vague memory of updating a machine (don't remember which series) to OS 9 and getting a warning message that if I did so, firmware updates would be installed that would prevent me from going back to OS 8.6. I have never had a B&W G3 to work with or on, so I know it wasn't one of them. I was wondering if anyone knew if I could "regress" one of the B&Ws if I bought it?
Folks.... I was going to post this in the trading area on this forum. But I thought it might apply to users here. I hope I have not broken any rules.... This is a PCI SATA card made for Macs, that is suppose to have the ability to not only boot you into OS9 but also early flavors of OSX. https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-Port-SATA-PCI-Card-for-Apple-Macintosh-Mac-OS-PowerMac-G4-SSD/132581321334?hash=item1ede766a76:g:uhEAAOSwef9a0SBX:rk:2:pf:0 I bought one but it has not arrived so I can not confirm this.
