Question about HD extended format and OS9.1 or 9.2
I have been attempting to install OS9.2 on an 8200. I managed to make the leap from 8.6 to 9.01 but when I try to install 0s9.1 or os9.2 I was informed that the HD drivers prevented installation of the OS. I tried to update the drivers but the install will not go ahead. The HD is not in the extended format. This isn't the issue is it:confused: The HD is from the vendor Quantum. Does any one know if there are issues with Quantum drives and OS 9.1/ 9.2 installations.

Finally, one other quick question to do with an iMac CRT model. How do I put the remote access panel back into the control strip? For some reason it is not there!

Many thanks in advance for any input

There is a folder inside your System Folder called "Control Strip Modules." Somehow the one for remote access must've gotten out of there. Do a search for it, and if you can find it put it back in the folder. You might have to do a restart in order to see it in your control strip.

About the Mac OS installation issue, I really don't know if you need an HFS+ disk to install the update. If I were to guess I would guess that you do need it, but I really have no idea.

If I remember correctly OS9.1/9.2 needs HFS+, I think it has something to do with Carbon and OSX compatibility (even on non-OSX machine).
