I have a B&W G3 that has two drives. On one I use 10.3.9. On the other I use 9.2.2. Because iTunes just produces coasters on my machine and I have an old Toast app on my old drive, I restarted on the old drive and 9.2.2. (Yes, I tried classic first, no go.) When the screen comes up the cursor is visible but will not move. The keyboard is also inop. Does anyone know a fix??

I ran disk first aid (10.3.9 scanning the old drive) and diskwarrior (the newest). No changes. I have techtool installed on the old drive but it's an old version, well before 9.2.2.

I'd try my pismo but I only have 9.2.2 running under classic there.

Yeah, I know, buy a new machine. But this one does what I want 99% (well, close) most of the time. Thanks for any help. Dan

If that doesn't work, try trashing the system preferences and restarting. Make sure none of the USB extensions weren't accidentally disabled.

I tried the shift key restart. I can't get in that way. If I can scrub the 9.2.2 system preferences from the other drive I'll try this again. Dan
