Does not work for the same partition
Authored by: kevyang on Mar 03, '02 08:00:03PM

This does not seem to work if both OS9 and OSX are installed on the same partition. I "blessed /System Folder" and OS9 booted up halfway.

BTW, a faster way to use the Startup Disk Preference pane is to click on the OS icon once it comes up then hit Cmd-Q and Return immediately before it starts scanning the disk.

Also, a faster way to boot X from OS9 is to hold the 'x' key down while rebooting and release it when you see the first grey screen.

it will work the second time you try to boot into OS 9 from the X, when 9 is on the same partition. i varified this. look at my post on the forums site.
