My G3/400 won't boot with 9.0.4 installed so I reverted back to 9.

Any news on an update to fix this? Any surefire tweak to make 9.0.4 work? (I tried moving the enabler out of the system folder. It didn't work.)

How about following instructions that Apple gives?


How about updating your software for compatibility with Mac OS 9?

well that's helpful: I've obviously done all that and I'm already running 9 and all my software is compatible.

anyone else have any good ideas?

I have a B&W G3 350 that is running 9.0.4 without any problems. I suspect that something got corrupted and suggest that you consider reinstalling (clean install) OS 9, reboot and then follow Apple's instructions and update to 9.0.4. After this, move your extensions and control panels, and fonts, etc. from your previous (old) system folder that you want to keep to the new one. Good luck.
