#422735 - 04/06/0911:30 AMRe: Free versions of OS 9 to download??
Someone gave me the OS 9.1 and 9.22 discs. However, when I go to install the OS 9, the Classic menu opens and get this message "No Classic system folder: You do not have a version of Mac OS 9 installed that supports Classic. Install mac OS 9.1 or later." I'm unable to install the OS 9. I even checked the startup disk and OS 9 is not there. So any ideas on this one and what I can do to get OS 9 on there?

Are you able to start up the computer from the 9.1 or 9.2.2 CDs that you have? It's possible that they are update only CDs or not for your computer (e.g., software restore CDs for some other model). Try starting from the CD by pressing and holding the "C" key until the computer is obviously booting from the CD. If that works then try looking -> here . Otherwise, you may have to start with your former 9.0.x and update it to 9.1 -> <http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=75103>
