I encountered the following problem:
After a power outage, I checked my harddisk with First Aid and it said, it couldn't repair properly. So I decided to startup with the Norton Systemworks CD.
It starts booting, but when the desktop is supposed to show up, nothing happens. Clock is running, mouse is moving, but nothing else. I waited a long time to see if there is something happening - NOT.
I tried the original System 7.6.1 CD and it works, but I can't access the HFS+ harddisk with this system.
My last hope is the original OS9 CD that I have to find somewhere, but if this doesn't work too...?
Is there something else I can try to do? I find it confusing that the computer doesn't startup from the CD...
