there must be a way, Remember: USB 2.0=480MBps vs. FW400=400MBps
it can be done i searched on google and it came up but with no inscructions, and presuming this apple article you posted is from 2001, they would have been talking puma and maybe talking USB 1.0
You heard the Ram. It can't be done...
on google people have started mac osx on usb flash drives, so it can be done
Please show us what on earth you are talking about.
Give us a link then.
It cannot be done. Some PC motherboards support this. I've seen linux on a PC booted from a USB drive. Macs are a no-no though. The firmware does not allow it.
I defer to your superior knowledge. Please set it up, and then report back to us the specifics of how you got it to work.

That's OS9, not OSX.
Mind you, that link does suggest that it is possible at least. Just not all the time and not recommended. Hell OP, give it a try if you insist!
and...... my g4 can boot in os9 yet someone said that the firmware won't support it......... search yourself theres loads of results that look promising
You have a dual 1.42G4, same as I do? It will not boot in OS9.
10.2.4 is the earliest, I think.
Face it, it can't be done.
thanks for agreeing, i see your from england
mine does, maybe yours was a later model but mine definatly does
Still not possible for OS X.
If you want to boot via USB to OS9, I have read and heard reports that it will work. I've never tried it though. OS X will not boot via USB. It is not possible.
Oh really? Have you done this yourself?
Introduction Date: January 28, 2003
Discontinued Date: June 23, 2003
Supports MacOS X 10.2.3+. Earlier MacOS versions are not supported.
another model was released after ours and included mac os9 and so does mine, i even remember the bloke on the phone saying it boots os9
No, there wasn't another G4 model released after that. But there were some dual 1.25s released before then that could boot OS9, we have one at work.
Sounds like you'll believe anything a bloke on the phone tells you... Are you definitely sure you don't have one of those? Have you booted your machine into OS9 before?
mactracker must have failed me, thats goin in the trash
BV is correct, there are no dual 1.42s that can boot OS9. The re-released dual 1.25s could, as could the dual 1.25 from late 02 to early 03.
And no, it's not possible to boot OS X from a USB device, currently.
