Hi guys, I just bought a Power Mac G4 which according to wikipedia can use the universal install of Mac OS 9.2.2 -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_9#endnote_A1 (I have the PowerMac G4 (quicksilver)) I installed the OS fine but once the installed OS boots it freezes. It seems like this is because the OS is not actually compatible with the hardware. According to the page below even universal install images have a special procedure to install as a universal install (which is totally confusing to me) https://discussions.apple.com/thread/936301?tstart=0 I downloaded the
Hi guys, With your help I got the G5 (hardware 11,2) running Classic Mode.

But then again http://web.archive.org/web/20060709042308/http://www.grumperfish.com/1400/os.html implies (read the home page too) that 7.6.1 runs. Any ideas? I'd get a 133 if the 166 can't run 7.5/7.6, as that was my purpose. Edit: See http://web.archive.org/web/20060709042413/http://www.grumperfish.com/1400/configuration.html this page.
