Question about Macintosh PPC and Quantum Fireball drive

Post by djcameron6 » Mon, 03 Nov 2003 04:57:07


I have had a problem with a hard drive, where it was partitioned to be
a HFS partition for OS9. I really only want to use this computer as a
Graphic Design workstation; but am having problems getting Disk First
Aid, Drive Setup, or Norton Diskdoctor to recognize the hard drive.
When and if it does, it says that it cannot be initialized; sometimes
the HD light comes on and sometimes it doesnt. What I was wondering
is: is it simply a problem with the hard drive? If it isn't, what
else could be involved? Is there a way for a macintosh to boot off of
a IBM disk with Mac files on it (only other working computer is an
IBM), and is there a site that has Macintosh low-level format programs
and boot programs for Mac OS9?

TIA

Delfuego

--
The OS-9 that this newsgroup is about is Microware's OS-9 embedded
real-time operating system. It's an OS that has been around about
four years longer than the Mac (1980 was when it first came out for
the 6809 processor). You might want to search www.macfixit.com or
visit the forums at www.apple.com -- tons of great searchable answers
there - or see the many Mac newsgroups.
