Moved: Ibook Re-Install

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I have re-formatted my hard drive and just installed os x. I want to put os 9 back on, but I am unsure what should I install first os 9 or os x. How do i get them on the same partition like it was when I bought my ibook.

    Install OS 9 first. Set it up the way you want it, disable any extensions you don't need, then install OS X, just don't choose the "erase and install" option. That should do it.

    even with OSX already installed... you can starup using the OS 9 CD and install OS 9 on the machine without affecting OSX.

    Then next time you start up Classic in OSX, it will ask to intall a few components it needs.

    No problem., I've done this myself, but have since deleted 9 again... have been OSX only for several months now.
