Hello everyone, I recently acquired a 1998 Bondi Blue iMac G3, and would like to install Mac OS X Panther. First off, do I need to install Mac OS 9 before you install OS X, and/or are there any firmware updates needed for it? My second question is: I have the .iso for Mac OS 9 burned to a CD, but when I put it in the CD drive, it says: (see attachment) "This disk is unreadable by this computer. Do you want to initialize the disk?" I also tried to put in an audio CD, and got the same message. Does this mean that the CD drive is broken? Yes, I burned the image to the CD with Disk Utility. I have also tried booting from the disc itself with the C key. My third question is: If the drive is broken, is it possible to boot from a USB flash drive? Or, if it's not, how can I get the iMac to read the disc? Any help is appreciated.
