Here is the problem. A friend of mine running Jag without OS 9. He needs to update his firmware on his tray loading iMac. Is it possible to create an OS 9 bootable CD with the firmware updater on it, to be able to boot and update the firmware from the CD?<br><br>

9 will run if you drag an "already installed" OS9 System Folder over from a backup CD or another hard drive - that's what I did.<br><br>As far as updating the firmware goes, can't you just boot off the OS9 CD holding the "C" key down and run the firmware updater from the HD?<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

Great suggestions! My uncle is in the same boat. Whenever he tries to start his original Rev A iMac, he gets a message that the firmware needs to be updated. When he tries to start up from the OS 9.2 disk (holding the "C" key), he gets the same message. Can anyone think of another way around this?<br><br><br><br>
