When I started the installation from within OS 9 and when a window prompted me to click the "Restart" button to begin the installation process, I did. Hi, First of all, the firmware should be upgraded on the Imac (if not, you can have a display issue) don't remember exactly, done it a few years ago, but the firmware should be available from Apple.It restarted and a light grey screen with the dark grey Apple logo appeared, along with a loading circle. Also, IIRC, DD size should be under 8 Gb..be be wrong here.Which i Mac are you talking about, there are several revision.
Look past the hype, and focus on what the drive's actual capabilities are.
If you want to really understand what a drive can do and what it supports, you should look at its specification sheet and see what features and transfer modes it is designed to use.
I just saw the flashing question mark/face folder icon The Rhapsody partition is no longer showing up. When I got to the installation process & was selecting the Rhapsody disk, it said something like "Previous Selected Install Partition".
It then gave the same preparation message as before and it now said "To continue installation, click restart".
Since the i Mac G3 can still boot Mac OSes 8 and 9, I mostly use the machine to indulge a nostalgia for childhood schooldays spent poking at the operating system and playing Escape Velocity.
But before I got around to that, I decided to try out the software that the previous owner had left on the machine.
I bought a used i Mac G3 recently and I am trying to get it at max performance. I read on some places that 7200 RPM drives may have overheat problems in the G3 is that true?
I probably wont be stressing the drive too much since most files come from network but its good to know. The ones I am considering have : EIDE ATA100 IDE Fast Ultra DMA ATA/133 Both are 7200 rpm refubrished drives at 80 gb and 2mb catche. As an alternative if 7200 rpm is not good idea/ interfaces not compatible i got this : ATA/133 HDD Hard Drive IDE Thanks and hope I didnt put too many questions there ^^.
Hi all, I'm new here and I'm fairly new to Macs, so I apologize for any things I might not say or do correctly in advance!
I also apologize for asking you all this newbie tech support question haha.
(And, since then, to re-try with each new Open BSD release.) Below are the results of this experiment (plus a working file) and a few background notes. I'd test that assertion if Open BSD's macppc installation instructions didn't seem much simpler than Net BSD's.
