I have an iMac DV 400 MHz. It has been nothing but wonderful sine 1999 but the other day I tried to boot OS 9 just for a change of pace and to get some work done with out classic. My usual operating system is OS x 10.2.3. Now the computer will not start. I used a friend's eMac connecting the two computers through the FW ports and switched back to OSX, which worked. Then I ran Disk utility and tried to run 9 again. This time same problem, but my friend will not let me use his computer this time says he is busy with schoolwork. I have tried booting from every install disk I have 9-9.1-9.2-10-10.1-10.2 and disk tools from my APP. I would take it to my local apple store but my Protection plan just ran out in Dec 2002 . I was hoping someone would know how to switch into the boot loader during bootup so I can get this thing up and running. Any possible solutions would be really appreciated. Thanks.
