    I have a 233 iMac with 160mb of ram. I bought a 4.3gb hard drive on ebay with panther and 9.2 already installed which i now found out was stupid. I have installed my ram and the hard drive now, so i thought i was ready. when i turn the computer on, i see a finder folder. it is not the flashing one though. any advice?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think you need to update the firmware and possibly the hard disk drivers before you can run either of those operating systems. Someone who knows more could support or deny this theory.

    I can't get it to log in to update the firmware.
