Hi! I have an original iMac that's been pretty upgraded, 600mhz harmoni, 512 megs ram, etc. Anyway, I partitioned the 120 gig hd, installed os9 and osx10.4 onto the first 7 gig partition, and set the drive to cable select. When I boot, I get a flashing question mark. I was told that holding down option allows a boot menu, but that hasn't done anything for me. I would just start from a CD, but unfortunatly my optical drive doesn't work (I had to install os9 and osx onto the drive while it was in my powermac).
Any help? I also installed OSX onto a firewire drive, but again, without the ability to choose where it wants to boot, I can't figure out how to get it to even see the FW drive. One would think the holding down option would do SOMETHING, but so far nothing whatsoever is showing up.
