<< Curious indeed. Let me recap to make sure I understand:
1. Boots in OSX only. In OSX, can set boot device to OS9 disk,
but a reboot puts you back into OSX.
2. Pressing option on reboot only shows OSX disk.
And I assume that if you booted from an OS9 cd and used
*that* to set the boot volume to be the OS9 internal disk
that it would also fail to boot?
This seems very odd indeed. Have you run a disk repair utility
(eg, disk warrior)?
Daniel, you understand my problem exactly and have restated it more precisely.
I have not used any repair utility applications either; these hard drives have
recently been reformatted before the systems were installed. It may be
interesting to add that on the HD that has OSX, there is a copy of OS9, too, in
the same partition. It runs fine for classic mode but I can not start up from
that OS9 either.
thanks again for your response,
