Hey guys,

I would like to install Mac OS 9 on my iMac G3 because I find Panther really slow even with 320mb of RAM.
I downloaded the iMac G3 OS 9.2 image from the FTP and burnt it with ImgBurn, my iMac doesn't want to boot from the CD.
Any help?

Thanks :)

Are you certain that it supports burned CDs?

Most likely it didn't work because OS9 uses an older filesystem, which IMGBURN didn't recognize.

Sure, so what burning software should I use? Plus I'm on Windows :?

I got my PowerMac G4 "Sawtooth" with OS 9.2.2. It supported 1440x900 on my 19" monitor. :D

The iMac G3 9.2 CD is for another model… With a different machine ID (something like imac1,1) stored on the system file… Sorta like trying to use a MacBook install DVD in an iMac…

I had problems like this with my iMac G3 (Mac OS 8.6 was messed up), and I still haven't been bothered to resolve them. I downloaded Mac OS 9.2.2 for iMac G3 from the FTP a while ago, burned it with ImgBurn on Windows 7, and it wouldn't boot. Looks like I'll use this topic and when I get round to it, I'll burn a 9.0.4 disc next time!

EDIT: From the posts here, I'm not sure I understood entirely: You did use ImgBurn to burn Mac OS 9.0.4, which then successfully booted on the G3, right? 'Cause I thought my problems were with ImgBurn, to start with.

I used TransMac to burn Mac OS 9.0.4, In options -> General options I checked burn using alternate method not primary. Works fine :)
Hope it'll work for you ;)

Thanks for the advice, I'd never heard of TransMac before! I'll probably pirate it, lulz.

The G4 DA firmware is not updatable from OS X even if the board is almost the same as in the Quicksilver and can run all that models CPUs.
I swapped a classic 9.2.2 drive from a Yosemity in and flashed from there.
