Related problems with early iMacs
Authored by: mzajac on Sep 25, '01 06:05:59PM
A similar problem affects same later iMacs too. In an iMac that came with an 8GB or smaller drive it seems the system has to be within the first 8GB. It may only affect Mac OS 9.x. A friend of mine had installed a large hard drive in his Lime iMac. It worked fine for months, but after doing a clean install of 9.1, his computer booted into Open Firmware with an error message. The solution was to reformat & partition the drive, and reinstall the system on the first 8GB partition. This is dealt with in Apple's Knowledge Base article #25249 'iMac: Gray or White Screen After Hard Drive Upgrade.'
