RE: Running 9.1 and 9.04 with OS X
Authored by: Anonymous on Jan 12, '01 11:25:46AM

I have also done this, even with pre GM 9.1, but what seems to happen, is that when I
bootup in OS X, that it manages to write something into my Volume partition map,
and it changed what it thought was the file system type for the 9.1 partition,
which was my normal boot volume. I could boot from 9.1, but could not copy files
to/from its volume, without the folder invisible flag set. The partition was no longer
visible if I booted up with OS 9.0.4 or OS X. I had to back up, re-partition,
and reload. But after all, I kept trying to tell myself, "its only a Beta" (it didn't
help). Also, any non-default extensions in the 9.0.4 used for Classic, can not only
cause crashes of Classic, but can bring down OS X (not supposed to), and leave behind
other problems, forcing either a reinstall of OS X & the Classic 9.0.4.

P.S. Overall I was well pleased with OS X, Classic, and 9.1 as my three main
partitions (the fourth had been the Italian 9) - and like the old watch commercials,
"And it's still ticking !"
