Ok...here's the deal. I'm on a Rev B. iMac with 96MB RAM and 20G harddrive running OS 9.0.4...originally. I found a copy of OS 9.1 (GM) on a server somewhere and decided to try it out. I did a clean install with it. It didn't work, all I got was a grey screen at startup and not even reaching my happy mac screen. So, I booted off a cd, deleted the 9.1 system folder, then restarted into 9.0.4. Well, the same thing happens. I decided to zap my PRAM, just because. Now I get this error:

DEFAULT CATCH!, code=300 at %SRR0:ff***** %SRR1: 0000b030

the starts seem to be any random combination of letters and numbers. I can still boot up off of a cd, but can't off of my hard drive. I've delete my system folder, reinstalled, and reinsatlled again. still no luck getting this to work. Any suggestions? I hope this is fixed by the time the actual release comes out...I'd hate to waste my money on an OS if this happens again.

I bet there's a boot ROM issue at work.

You may well have lost or corrupted the drivers for the hard disk. Norton Utilities or Tech Tool Pro may well be able to sort it.Apples Drive set up might do the trick too.
