mac/os9 USB Printer Sharing error 41
I just bought this old imac tangerine from 1999 from a friend, (who is rapidly turning not into a friend...) since I have been curious about macs...
It's been sitting dormant for sometime and, of course, the password isn't recalled... I have tried using the boot disk and "c" to get it to boot, and then deleted off the keychain access preferences and keychains files <which there was only 1 file in it> that i saw in a post... it still wouldn't boot to the "desktop" but "c" would work to send it to the disk...
I then read another post on a site about deleting out what kept popping up "THE BLOCK" and asking for the password. Now... it won't even boot to the cd disk with "c". It just keeps telling me: You need to setup THE BLOCK before your mac is protected. Please use the application THE BLOCK Setup.
I hit ok, then it appears to begin starting up my Mac OS 9 and loading some programs and then WHAMMO!!! i get hit with
Sorry a system error occurred. USB printer sharing extension error type 41 and the restart button. I hit the restart andthe Sorry a system error occurred USB Printer Sharing Extension bus error. I hit the restart a few million times and after awhile it either pops up an error 10 or stays at the bus error and I have to turn it off.
Now, when i try to boot using "c" and the disk in it won't even do that. What do i need to do to reinstall from scratch or to just get something different
I'm very familiar with Windows OS 3.1 to XP, but this has got me tied up in knots and nothing seems very helpful in the various forums i have read all over the net....
I have tried a Pram reset, but it hasn't done anything as far as i notice and i have tried booting with the shift button down too.
Thanks so much for your time and effort!!!!!
