I have recently purchased a g4 quicksilver 867mhz tower. (WooHoo!!!) I used to use a 500mhz g3 imac until this purchase. I had a partitioned 40 gig HDD that I would dual boot OS 9/X. I pulled it out and put it in the quicksilver, and now no dual boot...any ideas why?

Do both systems show up in Startup Disk? I assume it's OS 9 that doesn't boot, right? Maybe Santa will leave DiskWarrior under the tree.
Which version of OS 9 is it? You'll likely only be able to boot 9.2.2, since that was one of the last OS 9 booting Macs.
(Actually, I suppose I shouldn't assume it's OS 9 that's the problem, but you don't specify.)
actually os 9 is the problem. it is 9.1, and I use it because it is compatible with my iomega external cdrw. should I download the update and see if it works? can I update it without opening os9? it wont even open in classic mode...
