View Full Version : Removing OS9
October 17th, 2006, 07:22 PM
Hi all, this question may have been answered already, and if so direct me to the answer. I have a 400MHz slot-loading iMac (green). Long ago I put in an 80 GB disk and partitioned it into 3 partitions. 1 for OSX, 1 for OS9, and one called Scratch. I would like to get rid of OS9 as I don't use it for anything anymore. Is it simply a matter of wiping the OS 9 partition, and rebooting, or are ther some other dependencies in the OSX partition.

You can remove it, you just won't be able to run Classic through OS X or your OS 9/Classic apps.

I don't think that there's much - if any - dependences in the OS X partition. It will still have the "classic" pane, so that you could run classic again if you re-installed it, but nothing that shouldn't be there. If you want to delete the partition, however, that's another story.
