: Dual 867 os Load question

Dec 29th, 2005, 02:35 PM
Ok got a dual 867.

I partitioned the drive into 2 partitions.

Figured I would install X on one and 9 on the other. (just because)

MUST use original install disks or it will not work. OK no prob.
Load X onto partition.
Load SOFTWARE (os 9) RESTORE disks and i will not let me load it onto the partition only the os X drive??????? ?????? :confused:


This is a reload and my previous config was X on one partiton and 9 on the other and it worked great what am I missing :yikes:

There's a box to check whether you want to install OS9 drivers in the Erase page in Disk Utility.

PS, I liked installing 9 and X on different partitions. That way you can use disk utilities on one OS without screwing up the other. There's other advantages as well. But I don't bother installing OS 9 anymore.
