    Hey guys,
    I recently got my Macintosh Performa 6200, and i wanted to update it from 8.0 to mac os 9, but while i was updating, the power went of, and when i tried to boot it back up again, it just says:
    "Sorry, a system error occurred.
    file system map inconsistent
    To temporarily turn off extensions, restart and
    hold down the shift key."
    And when i do that, it simply just says the same thing :(
    PLEASE HELP ME!

    You have to either repair this disk with First Aid or erase it and start from a blank installation.

    There is. It's a standalone app in OS 9, not part of Disk Utility. The icon for First Aid is an ambulance.

    Boot from the OS 9 cd and run First Aid from the disc. That may not fix it and you'll have to wipe the hard drive and start over from blank.
