I am running mac os 9.2.1 and I just updated my disk driver for drive B with FWB v4.5 and everythign seemed to be working. It updated it fine and i restarted while on drive A and the drive that i updated(drive b) mounted fine. Drive B is an HFS+ drive btw. Ok, so i try and boot onto drive B that i updated and i get a blinking system disk on startup. So i restart onto drive A and here i am. I can mount drive B, but it doesnt mount by itself. This is obviously the problem. The drive doesnt mount and therefore the computer cannot start up on it. I dont really want to use FWB anymore so maybe if i can get apples drivers back it would all work. The problem is i cannot reformat my drive. Techtool pro gives me lots of errors on volume structure: startup file allocation file etc. But it cannot fix it. This is a serious problem because i need to be able to boot from drive B. It has always worked in the past and now with the new stupid FWB driver it doesnt work anymore.
All help is apprieciated.
Thank you.

Boot from a MacOS CD and in Drive Setup there should be an option "Update hard disk driver" or something similar.

Failing that, install an OS onto it and that will hopefully update the driver before the installation starts.
