Classic startup problem solved!


A few people have reported getting at message when trying to launch Classic mode. The error says: "This startup disk will not work on this Macintosh model. Please use the Installer to update this disk for this model.".

This happened to me and after several installs, I figured it out. If you use the OS 9 Restore CD, you will get this error. Install OS 9 using the Software Install CD and it will work fine. I thought that it might be a driver issue, but it is not. I installed using the Installer CD, and then replaced the system folder with a backup of my previous Restore CD version of the system folder and the problem came back.

Hope this helps folks out there.
