"It's great you are able to boot 9 on those. That must be speedy. I remember my families G4 / 400 that booted 9...that was pure speed. "

Chris replied to Jeremy Clayton-Travis's discussion Classic on a MDG4 in the group Mac OS 9
"I know this is quite the old thread, but I was under the impression that the G4 Macs that can boot OS 9 are quite limited. That is, not every G4 Mac will boot OS 9. For example, the G4 Mac Mini. That's OSX only. The iMacs were that way as well,…"

LCII hard drive replacement

I picked up an LCII awhile back, not sure if I posted about it here or not. Anyway, I had System 7 all installed up and boom...the hard drive dies. Yikes.
