Hey! I have a G3 AIO 266Mhz (not the iMac) and I am looking for firmware updates so I can install OS 10.2 on it. I seem to be unable to find any, so your help is appreciated.

Hmm... tried looking it up here (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86117) , but couldn't find the All-in-One.

Maybe similar to the Desktop 266?

The AIO has no firmware upgrade.

The AIO has no firmware upgrade.

Oh. If not, then why am I unable to install Jaguar? It locks up after rebooting and XPostFacto will not work, either.

Did you partition your hardrive to 8gbs? You Must install MacOS X in first HD partition. This must be smaller than 8 GB.

You dont need xpostfacto to install jaguar only panther

Here's the problem I am having, taken from my thread no one responded to:

"My problem is that when I reboot with the OS X CD in the drive, the dark gray Apple logo will appear with the spinning thing underneath it. Then the video will just "static out" and nothing will happen. It is the original 2MB video card, so that may be an issue? What can I do to install this?"

Also, I have no software to partition the drive with and am unwilling to pay 29.95 for InTech's software.
