    Exclamation iMac 233 Bondi Blue - OS X - Grey Screen of Death
    I just installed a fresh install of OSX - Jaguar and it installed without problem, but now I cant load anything! It loads up the grey screen with the apple, and then all of a sudden it gives me 2 white bars, and then completely locks up.

    Any ideas?

    Lightbulb Running OS-X Panther on Bondi fine
    I just installed Panther on a 233 Bondi with 160 MB RAM.
    It runs fine.

    Try upgrading your firmware:
