So, from what i have read in this post, OS X and OS9 together are causing the issue...

Now, what about a BTree error that is strictly OS9? as in no OS X anywhere on this machine? X is not allowed on this mac at all, i have other machines that deal with X when i need it. How do i repair the error then?

Disk Warrior or Norton. In that order. Booted from another drive.

downloaded and burned norton 6 (from mac garden) on the mdd, but when i tried to boot it, it didn't want to boot. so currently i'm booted into 9 and norton is doing a slow check on the drive now.

as of writing this, norton found the error, and it's asking to fix it but i'm still booted into os 9. if all else fails, i will strip out the old drives and throw in an ssd partitioned to 2 drives and just redo what i have

You should have used Disk Warrior first, as I wrote. Norton has a tendency to screw up things sometimes.
If Norton is slow, turn off 'checking for bad blocks' or 'media scan' in preferences.

@reddrag0n

After you have “repaired” the Invalid Btree Header error with Disk Warrior (with and or in conjunction with Norton Disk Doctor) would you kindly check, test and monitor the drive over the next couple of weeks and report if it in fact remains “repaired”?

And also… if you eventually convert to an SSD too?

There are many reported instances in the past where these errors have supposedly been repaired - only to find that soon thereafter, the errors again reappear.

Thanks.

after norton found the error, it crashed. twice...

i said "eff it" and am converting everything over to a single ssd. take the 3 heat generating drives out and leave the single ssd in.
should be faster and hopefully kill my boot time in half. before with the hdd it would take about 2 min to boot into os 9. been like that since i installed the drives. so maybe this will fix it all    *fingers crossed*

Yee-ikes!

Maybe run Apple Hardware Test… if available for whatever machine you’re working with.

Usually, I could always get Disk Doctor to repair and report a-OK, but then eventually back to same errors.
Often ended up just reformatting with Drive Setup 2.1 and then clean installing OS 9.2.2.

But running AHT (if possible) can help identify other possible problems. Best of luck.

Many swore off of using Norton soon after the arrival of OS X and some (moi) still use it exclusively on OS 9 partitions, drives, etc.
And if you check the “Diagnostic CD Images & TechTools” download area here: http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?board=33.0 / there are two versions of “Mactron’s Bootable Rescue CD & Disk Repair” that both contain a usable version of Norton. (As well as Drive Setup 2.1 - I believe.)

There are also many specific versions of AHT there in that download area as well. ;)
