I seem to be having a string of bad luck with Old World ROM Macs. I have an 8600 that I bought the other day. When I received it, it was working fine with OS 8.5, but I wanted to upgrade it to OS 9. The computer had some old owners' files on it, so I re-initialized the drive to do a clean install. The computer will boot up perfectly with an OS 9 retail disk. I can run the installer fine, but it will give me an error message when installing "Internet Access." I've attempted doing a custom install with this aspect of the install omitted, and the installation proceeds fine with no errors. When I restart the computer, it will boot to the desktop and hang. Sometimes, the time appears and I can move the cursor, but it won't go beyond this. Other times, I can't even move the cursor. It boots and works fine if I boot without extensions. Additionally, I had thought at one point that I would downgrade to OS 8. My OS 8 install disk won't even boot-it gives a "bomb" error during the boot process and tells me to restart without extensions. The computer has a 4gb SCSI HDD, and 416mb of RAM. I was initially running the computer with a flat panel connected to a PCI Rage 128. I removed that card, and am using the on-board video at the moment with a 16" Multi-Scan Apple display.
