iMac Rev. A boots to Open Firmware


Hey everyone. I have an imac rev. a with 96mb of ram and a new 30gig internal hard drive. I tried installing OSX ontop of OS9 a few times, and each time the installation process seems to go ok, but when i restart the screen is grey and im in open firmware! arrgh

I have to startup from the OS9 CD and set the startup disk to my 30 gig drive again and that makes it boot into OS9 normally.

Anyone have any idea whats wrong?

ive tried zapping the p-ram. all that does is make openfirmware come up ontop of the flashing question mark.
