I have a beige that has Jaguar in the first 8 gigs and 9 in the second partition. I was trying to use L2cache config to get my L2 cache working on my upgrade, but could not boot into 9. So after much trying, I decided to go to the preferences in Jaguar, change the startup disk to 9, clicked the lock to lock the change (prior to this it would not boot into 9 at all). Now I can't get back into X.Tried booting from 9 and selected X as the startup disk, pressing the X button at startup, pressing the option button at startup starting up using the 9 CD and changing the startup disk..no luck. Is there a way to boot into terminal and changing the permissions that way?

I have a couple of beige G3's and they are VERY finicky about booting into OSX from OS9. Your best bet is to download XPostFacto and use that to select your boot partition. It's free, and there are lots of links here on ehMac. Do a search.

Although the beige G3 is supposed to be supported in Jaguar, it's not always easy to get it going without some help. XPostFacto should do the trick.

thanks for the reminder.......but the problem was different this time...I think I nailed down the previous problem to a bad hardrive since I switched the beige was working fine. This time I did a complete reinstall and basically screwed up. My fault. I am reinstalling the system and starting from scratch!
