Hello, my imac G3 CRT will not boot up. I was running it with OS 10.3 very nicely for months when I read lots of scary things about firmware problems that happen if you dont have 4.1.9 firmware. I checked mine and it was 4.1.3 so I knew I had to update it. As I had done a clean install with Panther it meant I would have to install OS 9 to update the firm ware. I put in a OS 9 CD and clicked install - it wouldn't. I restarted holding down C and it still wouldn't. I read the instructions and it said I should go to System Preferences, open the start up disk panel and select the OS 9 disk. I did this and restarted. Big mistake. All I can get now is the flashing question mark. I tried the start up holding down the option key but I just get a blueish screen with the left curly arrow and the right straight arrow. If I click on the left arrow it searches (the watch appears with its hands going round) but it doesn't find anything to start up with. I tried booting up from it's factory 'restore/install' disk but it just refuses. It is very frustrating as I never got to install the OS9 and I know that Panther and all my stuff are on the hard disk - I just have no way of getting to it. Please can someone help me?
