    Can my mac run os 9?
    Hi there,
    You will have to forgive me, my knowledge of mac pcs is limited (this is why i joined!)
    I got given a PowerPC 603e/200 (Umax clone, so i'm told) What I would like to know is what is the most recent os that it can run?
    It currently has OS 7.6 on it but would like to update that to something a bit more modern.
    Is this possible on this pc?
    Thanks for your help.

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    So long as you have enough memory, yes.
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60498

    The latest supported OS for that machine would be 9.1 (Though some adventurous souls have gotten 9.2 to work)

    Clones use 3rd party CD rom drivers ,do not lose it. Find it and make a
    copy should you ever do a clean OS install. Most clones use CD rom tool kit
    2.32. The CD rom drives in theses machines are not Apple brand and apple
    drivers will not find them.
