MAC os 9 wont boot

MAC os 9 wont boot

I loaded Mac OS 9 on to a power pc ide drive and it loaded fine.  It is set to mount automatically but the computer will not startup from the new drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

RE: MAC os 9 wont boot

It is very likely to be a disk driver issue. Has it been formatted with a 3rd party driver?

What model Mac is it in?
Does the disk mount if you boot from another disk/CD?

RE: MAC os 9 wont boot

Thanks for the reply. It was a G3 desktop and my stupidity. The drive did not have the jumper set for single/master!
