The only way to get it on a 7200 is by replacing certain parts of your 9.1 System folder with the 9.2.1 parts. You can't actually get a full 9.2.1 system on that computer. It would be kind of a 9.1/9.2.1 hybrid system. I really don't think it's worth it. Most of the updates from 9.1 to 9.2.1 were for better compatability with OS X.

How did you get OS 9 on that machine to start with.I am looking for a patch for the imac installer myself for my 7500. Know any?Actually the folowing response is similar to what I have been told to do and that is to change the macosrom file after you copy over the system from one machine to the other.
