I recently bought a power mac with tiger installed on it. I wanted to install OS 9 in Classic so I could run certain apps.

So I inserted the boot disc for OS 9 after restarting the mac, and I held C to run in OS 9. I installed OS 9 in clean mode, and all seemed well.

NOW I CAN'T GO BACK TO TIGER! I've held Alt, pressed Esc, I don't know what to do. Please help!

Boot holding down "X". If this fails then you wiped out OS X. You could try an OS X repair install if it finds a previous install.

Clean install mode wipes the HDD alas. Pop in the Tiger install disc and install Tiger. You might like to partition the drive and keep the OS separate.
