Help with Downloading OS 9 Installer
« on: May 08, 2017, 07:34:55 AM »
I recently purchased a PowerBook G3 400MHz Lombard/Bronze Keyboard.  I am a newly registered user of macos9lives ( account has been activated by the admin ).

I have partitioned my hard drive into two partitions ( “OS-X-Tiger”  and  “OS-9” ).

I would like to install OS 9 onto both partitions so that I can use both OS 9 classic and boot into OS 9 natively.

It appears that the installers found at these macos9lives links may be the latest / most appropriate for my purposes:

http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,2109.0.html

( from the thread:  “How to Install Mac OS 9 if you already have OS X Installed” )


   or possibly this one:


http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,1859.0.html

( from the thread:  “How to Install Mac OS 9 if you already have OS X Installed” )


That said, I keep trying to download the installer file listed at these links and keep getting an error message that says:

An Error Has Occurred!

The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.


I have tried using both Chrome and Safari browsers to download the file using the links above without success.

Could you help me / direct me to where I can download the latest version of OS 9 from macos9lives (or from a different location)?

Thank you!

Have patience,  right now the up and download section is under work/maintenance
there could be some issues during that time.

Thanks for the information regarding the download section being under maintenance!  Any projection as to when it might be up and running again?  Days, weeks, months...?  Thanks again!

The Main Downloads from the boards should be 100% Operational and are NOT under maintenance, please let me know if you can access them

After you introduce yourself or ask for help, you will have made 1 post.

After that, all download zones are available IIRC.

1 post is needed to get to all the downloads but the Mac OS 9 Install images

The Mac OS 9 Install images are open to everyone, even not registered members/users.

Actually, this is no longer true :)

I Modified ALL downloads for members only, so save all bandwidth for members; our Universal Install has bee downloaded over 100,000 times and I wanted to stop outside direct links

Thanks for the advice and information everybody!  I have now been able to download the installers.  In addition, I've also introduced myself as advised above.  Thanks again!
