Os 9 Temp Load


I have a QS867 that lost its original 60G hard drive. I purchased a couple of 300G SATA's and a Sonnet 1.8 GHz CPU to upgrade the box. I loaded up the new drives and now have Tiger loaded. I need to have 9.2 loaded in order to run a patch supplied w/the CPU upgrade. I reloaded the software so that 10.4 is on one drive and 9.2 is on the other. The system will not boot to the 9.2; it gives a brief folder/?-mark altering with another icon and then restarts back as 10.4.

Any suggestions to get the system to boot into 9.2?

Since I have no need to stay with OS 9, once the patch is run from 9.2 and I get the CPU upgrade completed, (Should I get that far...) I plan on reimaging the system as RAID setup. Anything that should be taken into account prior to this?

Thanks for your help with this.

How did you install OS 9? Did you start up from the OS 9 CD to install?

Can you start up in OS 9 by going to the Startup Disk Panel in System Preferences (light switch in the dock)?

After you did the install of the OS's, did you use Disk Utility to repair permissions?
