How to clean up my Mac OS9?

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

(Note: I've never used OS9 before...)

 

As mentioned in the OSx86 Installation forum, my brother's friend gave me a PowerBook G3 with OS9. It has a lot of...stuff...on there and I was wondering how I could get rid of all the files and make it like new. Keep in mind that I don't have any install CDs, just the PowerBook. Thanks!

The fast way is to re install Mac OS 9 directly from the CD, erase the destination Disk.

macgirl, he did mention that he doesn't have an Installation CD.

 

Other than grabbing an install CD off p2p or something I don't see a way you can get around to that osmthi...

Certainly, he need an OS 9 installation CD, which is as easy as OS X to obtain, I think is even easier since it is smaller.

To be honest, finding OS9 is not easy. BUT, I think there is a website called MacDomain which is a DOT ORG site that MIGHT(wink wink) have what you are looking for. I THINK(wink) you may need Nero though. Hope that helps ya. I just had the same problem and using the install disc for a clean install is the only way to go. :)

macgirl: I like YOUR subtlety too! :blink: I did find those but when I tried to DL them none worked. I believe their trackers have been shut down. I dunno.

Haha, thanks for the help, Escape and Macgirl. The site is down now, but I hope it's just a temporary thing. Luff to you both. <3

Just to add this in, I just installed OSX 10.3.9 Panther last on my iMac G3 from the 2 Disc Install, and it works beautifully. Not the fastest but for only having 192MB ram, it's pretty cool.
