Thread: Help with installing OS X
09-12-2003, 12:05 AM #1meredithGuestHelp with installing OS X
I have a G3 Tower with a 4.25 GB SCSI HD.
I was running OS 9.2 and tried to install OS X.2
I wanted a fresh start, so I backed up my important info, booted up from the System Software disk, and initialized my hard drive with OS Extended format.
I then chose to install OS X.2, and waited while the installation began. When the process got close to the end, my machine froze. I tried restarting and installing again, and the same thing happened, each time I reinitialized the drive.
After about 3 hours of frustration, I decided to try installing OS 9.2.1 from the disk. About 3 minutes into the installation I got this error Encountered a problem with "Big System Morsels" file, installation cannot continue.
Help! I don't know what to do....any help would be so appreciated!
Thanks in advance,

I reinstalled OS 9.2.1 then OSX.
Opened drive set up, selected the OSX system folder, restarted and the computer gray screens, runs code across the top, then restarts over and over.
Any ideas? Could this be a firmware issue with my HD?
