You may remember my post of a few days ago.<br>http://www.macminute.com/cgi-bin/wwwthre...;o=21&part=<br>We just finished replacing the hard drive and Rick did a beautiful job. Now I am not sure what steps to take. I am using Jaguar discs to intall software. Since Mom has so much disc space I am going to go ahead and put it on there but keep her booted into OS9 for now. Can I do this from a purchased version of Jaguar or do I need to use the original OS 8 install disks? I tried turning the computer on and am getting the hum and eveything. I then put the Jaguar install CD in the tower and tried starting it holding the c key. I haven't tried hitting the cuda button or zapping the pram. If it is not starting up from the disk am I following the right steps for a fresh hard drive? Am I right to assume it is doing the same thing and now we need to order the pci card? We are not so nervous now so I think we can tackle that as well. Or am I missing something I should be doing?<br>I just found out mom is going out of state next week so I can keep it a couple of more weeks. I will get Jon to order the pci card tomorrow if I can't get this going tonight.<br>TIA <br><br>Peg Bundy:Did ya miss me? <br>Al: With every bullet so far.
You should be able to start up from the OS CD, either the version of 9 that came with Jag (9.2.1?) or Jag. Install 9 first, then Jag.<br><br>Since the drive is pretty big, you might consider partitioning it so that you can install 9 and X on different partition. I think that makes life easier, but different folks have different ideas.<br><br>If the computer is not booting from the CD, then there are other issues to work on--maybe the PCI card?<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
