Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I need a bootable Mac OS 9.2.2 System Folder from an iMac G3. I need it because my iMac G3 has been on the fritz all week.

Needed from an iMac G3:

Why not just download one of the Mac OS 9 discs from the FTP server and reinstall it using that? :)

How much Ram does it have? If it's one of the last G3s (which it is if the minimum OS is 9.2.x) then it's a pretty fast machine, you'd get a lot more out of it running OS X as long as it has enough memory (OS X Tiger is great on these older machines). Does it definitely not boot with 9.2.1, have you tried? (the FTP has 9.2.1)

One could be zipped up, Classic Mac OS is very flexible so you can copy a system folder to another machine and usually run with no problems, but it would be better to just download an OS 9.2 or preferably an OS X 10.4 install disc image.

If it's a G3 iMac, it "requires" at most 9.1. The last G3 iMacs (machine id: PowerMac 4,1) were released in 2001 and shipped with 9.1 or 9.2. The only computers that must have 9.2.2 or greater to run are G4s (the first two gens of G4 iMacs, and the original Quicksilvers).

The Mac OS 9.2.1 bootable ISO that's on the server should work just fine to get your computer up and running, and you should be able to apply the updates after the fact.
