Cannot Boot OS 9
Authored by: josste on Jan 03, '03 11:45:30PM

I did everything that this hint told me and classic runs perfectly from within the os 10.2.3 enviroment. However, I cannot seem to boot off of my classic disk image. When I select the 9.2.1 image in the startup disk controll panel and restart, I am shown a folder icon with a blinking question mark symbol. After about 10 seconds, the screen reverts to the regular os 10.2.3 startup with the big apple icon. Can somebody please help me?

Cannot Boot OS 9

It makes sense, actually -- disk images are mounted by Disk Copy. Disk Copy runs in the OS once the Finder is running. When you boot, there's no Finder and no OS, so it can't mount the image.

Sorry, but you won't be able to use your image to boot from...
