What is the maximum drive that an iMac rev. B IDE bus can handle (additionally, what can OS 9 handle?)
I know that the maximum RAM capacity is variable in the early iMacs (from the 384 to 512), as Apple was purchasing from many different vendors.
Thanks in advance!

The max the original iMac can take (Bondi) is 8gb as first partition. So i have a 30gb drive in my Bondi but the system is on a 8gb partition.

Edit: Mine IS a Rev. B

Thanks for the quick reply!
additionally, i don't have the recovery CD's (i bought it second hand). Would a OS9 full install work on an Imac?

thanks again!
