Can't start classic
Authored by: andrea_w on Dec 01, '02 04:53:21PM

I followed the instructions but when I try to start classic from
the classic system prefs, it says:

Classic Startup found no system folder on the
boot volume from which to start Classic.

I have selected the system folder from my os9 image. What gives?

Hmmm... strange... You might want to try to repeat the process: maybe the culprit is the bless command part...? Try to omit the quotation marks, and simply drag and drop the System Folder from the new Classic disk image onto the Terminal window after each of the -folder/folder9 entries; also try to quit the System Preferences and relaunch them after having completed all the steps in the hint... With a little troubleshooting "fantasy", it should work! :-)
