I tried to install Mac OS 9,1 on a Power Macintosh 7600, the installer stops and gave a strange sort of error! Does anybody know of this?

Odd, I have 9.1 running on an 8500.
Are you trying to load the retail 9.1 or a system CD that came bundled with a newer Mac?
What's the error?

Is it the OS9.1 that came with OSX or something?

1. Can't be 9.1 from another computer.
2. Maybe it can't be the OSX 9.1 disc? I mean you never know what Apple did to it.

Try using a 9.0 retail disc... then update to 9.04.

Yeah... we need the error...

Hi Kasper,
Check to make sure there aren't any fingerprints or scratches on the CD, sometimes that causes them to not read properly...

Thank everbody who replied,

Let me answer some questions first!

1. It is a retail Mac OS 9.1 (not bundeled or OS X version)
2. I Cleaned the disc (it's clean because it works on another machine)
3. There's no need for a clean install, the disk is formated.

Greetings,

I hope y'all could help me further,

Thanks in advance,

Have you Zazped your pram yet? You'd be amazed at what that can do for you. Also, the age of the unit says that you might be looking at a clock battery change soon. Clock battery's make systems do wierd things and are often unpredictable, but this is a long shot.

Are you booting from the OS 9.1 CD?
If not, do that.
First, shut down your 7600 and pop the top.
While it's unplugged, press the CUDA reset and hold for 10 seconds.
Close it up, restart on the CD and try the install again.
Let us know if you still get an error and exactly what the dialog box says.
