Question about Apple iMac RAGE PRO/233/266/333mhz Logic Board (p/n 661-2113-R) Motherboard
I can only seem to boot my iMac (a Bondi Blue Rev A or Rev B) from an OS 9 or higher CD, but I can't install OS 9 because I have to update the ROM. To do that, I have to be able to boot and install OS 8.6, but I can't.
Also, when booting the keyboard works until the Desktop is loaded then the keyboard disappears.
Right now, the HD is empty - formatted and ready to go.
Also, I can't use the keyboard once in the Open Firmware. I've tried every trick and tip imaginable and I just can't get it to work!
If I have OS 8.6 loaded as a network share, can I run the 8.6 Installer (even if I booted from an OS 9 CD) from the Share and make this thing bootable?
It can be deployed over the network if the information is placed in a Winzip folder first.
Before trying to install the 8.5/8.6 program, did you double check the HCL?
Some systems require you to install the 8.5 first, then upgrade to the OS9.
