Classic won't start
Authored by: friedmaj on Nov 14, '01 08:47:06PM

Since I installed the 10.1.1 update, Classic won't start. Specifically, it will load all the extensions (just when I thought I'd never have to deal with them again!), then go to a blank screen as it usually does briefly before loading the desktop. But it just stops at the blank screen. The disk is accessed a few more times (my OS 9.2 disk sounds different from my OS X disk) and the progress bar moves to nearly the end, but never quite makes it.

Classic starts fine with extensions off. I can also boot from OS 9.2 itself, with the extensions on, with no problems.

Anyone else get this?

I have since found a solution, but not an explanation, on macfixit: in OS 10.1, Classic won't start if there's a QPS Que! CD-RW connected and on. I don't know how specific the problem is to that particular brand of drive. Nonetheless, when I turned the CD-RW off, Classic started fine.

So not only does OS X not support my CD-RW, it won't even let me turn it on!
