I've got a problem I can't find a solution to:
After installing some software on my rev B iMac and restarting, the computer just stops at the smiley computer. Upon booting from CD, I found that the HD volumes would not mount automatically, I have to mount them manually from the disk utility every time. The volumes' data is still intact.
I've tried to zap the PRAM, rebuild the desktop, run Disk First Aid and Norton utilities 5 (which found and fixed some problems, but nothing that causes the HD volumes to mount again), installing a fresh System folder, updating the disk drivers. Seems like the OS 9 volume never wants to mount, so I can't boot off of it...
Since I have OS X installed I can boot into that (after selecting it as a boot volume after booting from CD), and use the system, but that's not always convenient for me.
Just wondering if anyone has recommendation on what steps to do/utilities to try to fix this problem...
