Hello !


I bought an iMac G3 500MHz, 512 MB RAM, CD-ROM, 20 GB HDD Indigo (Summer 2001) model, which has Mac OS X 10.4.11 installed.

But I really want to install Mac OS 9, to have a dual-boot between them. Can I install it on a flash drive from Mac OS X environment or from boot ?

I tried to install it form the Mac OS X environment, but it just opened Classic and I don't want that.

I have the original CD of Mac OS 9 (the retail one, not the grey one).


Thank you !

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
