The poster moved a hd from an emac to an iMac g3 rev a or b. The moved hd with 9.x will not boot successfully.  The orginal hd boots fine.

 

Thanks

Robert

    Hi Robert, I'm looking, but will take a bit of slow reading to see all that's going on.

    Did one post there about OS9 drivers on machines that can't boot OS9, which didn't agree with info given there.

     

    I wonder if that option was removed from Intel versions of 10.5.8, & if perchance an IntelMac was involved... It "appears" so far that it was a G4, but... ???

    Do you know how many Partitions are there & which OS they want to boot from?

     

    You likely know this, but if OS9 drivers are installed, the OSX Partition would be moved up 7, instead of 3 on the first Partition it'd be 10, I assume later Partitions on the same drive would be moved up accordingly.

     

    Thinking OSX on a second partition with OS9 drivers might be why you got 12???

    boot mac-io/ata-4@1f000/@0:12,\\:tbxi

    Do you think it matters that the Bondi Blue was ATA-3 matters there?

    I'm thinking that ATA-4 drives would all support slower ATA-3, but not sure.

     

    Since he can get responses on the drive in OF would seemingly back that up, but I can't find any real info.

    As a test, might have him use a block by block clone with CCC to turn it into a 4 GB apparent drive.
