Hello,

So, i've recently took apart my old iMac G3's HDD... The point of this is that I want to see if I put the OS 9 Installer files on the HDD, will it boot off of it and be ready to install ???


(Also, I DO NOT own an OS 9 install CD)

Thanks,
YoshiFan111

It might boot, since the system folder is there... installing on the same drive as the installer might prove to be a bit harder though. It's been a while since I've done something like that :P

The installer doesn't like to be on read write disks, and will just shut down.

It would probably be easier to use Qemu to install 9.1 onto the disk
