I have an Indigo iMac with a partitioned hard drive. 5 mb are os 9.x and the rest is OSX. While doing an OSX system update I had a power failure and have subsequently lost my OSX partition. I ran Disk First Aid and was able to repair the 9.x partition but my OSX partition will not mount on my 9.x desktop (it is there when restarting with option). I want to run Norton on my OSX partition, but how do I mount it? I also tried to reinstall OSX off the disk, but again, that partition is not visible. Any suggestions?
