4743[wpmac] Re: PPC and SS 1.1
- Feb 13, 2008The question of whether or not a PowerPC Mac can
boot into OS 9 (as opposed to running Classic in
OS X) depends on the machine's hardware - not
on whether Leopard or Tiger is something else is
The last PowerBooks that could boot into OS 9
were the Titanium models. The aluminum models
cannot boot into OS 9 (but they can run Classic
under OS X).
The last iBooks that could boot into OS 9 were
the iBook G3 models.
As for other machines,the only way to get a
reliable answer is to search Apple's site. A
Google search for
boot "os 9" site:apple.com
should yield useful facts.
