Hi,

A while back I bought this machine it had mac os 10.5 running.

I was hoping to run mac os 9.2 on it and maybe os X and some linux on it.

On macintoshgarden I found various cdroms, mac os 10.1 mac os 9.2 for this
machine and 5 cd set to restore mac.

However mac os x does not boot.

mac os 9.2 does boot but does not find any hard disks

The restore cdrom do boot, but does not find any hard disk.

The special mac os 9.2 found on the net for unsuppoted machines does work
out of the box, but I was hoping to first see if factory default does not
offer better support.

Any ideas why no hd shows up with orignal restore, mac os 9, and mac os x
10.1 Does not boot?

kind regards,
