I have a blueberry. I do want 8.6 for better After Dark support (as I understand it, 9 wasn't really much better but it dropped compatibility for lots of older things including most After Dark modules). Is there an 8.6 CD on this site that would work with it?

Minimum OS 9.0.4

I would just install 9.0.4, unless there some big reason you want 8.6.

There is two different iMac @ 350 MHz. To distinguish them easily, they comes in different colors. Is your iMac slot loading is "Indigo" or "Blueberry" ? The minimum system requirements is different also for them...

I have a 350 MHz slot loading one. Will any of these discs work with it?

So, what kind of iMac have u got ? I mean what specifications can u give about ? At least, some iMac can run 8.1 (rev. B) or 8.5 or 8.5.1 (rev. C & D). I talk only about the first ones, not slot-loading...

The earliest version of Mac OS my iMac can run is 8.6 though. Can someone else verify that they can boot from that image (maybe write it using a classic mac and see if that fixes it)?

MacTouch's picture
by MacTouch - 2018, March 1 - 12:23am

Perhaps the image u downloaded is not bootable. Instead of, u can DL Mac OS 8.5 on that link above, but of course, u need to update manually to 8.6, then... The archive there is a bin/cue image, so, I don't really think it could be a problem with ImgBurn & Windows.

Weboh's picture
by Weboh - 2018, February 28 - 5:30pm

Thanks for the fast reply. I was able to use imgburn to burn the disc but it wasn't bootable. I've gone through 3 different discs using different programs trying to make it bootable. Is there a way to do this from Windows, or should I just buy a copy of the CD?

MacTouch's picture
by MacTouch - 2018, February 28 - 2:12pm

You can use ImgBurn to do the task. Just rename the ".toast" images to ".iso" before burning them (don't open or mount them before this). Smile

How can I write a bootable copy using Windows? I don't have an old mac with a CD burner.

http://www.mediafire.com/download/it4f1abmazcfupv/sawtooth_8.6_restore&I...
download the mac os 8.6 installer here - this is *FOR AGP SAWTOOTH MACHINES ONLY* (with agp graphics + 4 ram slots, + internal firewire port)
it allows u to install mac os 8.6 on this machine that would otherwise require the 9.0 retail cd
or there is another install/restore for the sawtooth of 9.02 - which i ordered from ebay - and am providing for you now!
http://www.mediafire.com/download/23ny26xff4fgpq4/sawtooth_9.0.2_install...
http://www.mediafire.com/download/ua81auda87c2ffz/sawtooth_9.0.2_restore...
i reccommend the restore! it works fast + great
dont use v9.0.4 installer on a sawtooth because these installers were opimtized for the gigabit ethernet mystic model which has a very different motherboard, if u use 9.0.4 on a sawtooth you'll likely experience many crashes + weirdness because of this... but its a non issue, because ive just provided you here with the 100% proper install discs for the sawtooth! good luck! + happy mac'ing;)
