I recently come along an old bondi blue 233 rev a(ithinks) imac. I noticed it had a 4 gig hdd and i have tried to replace this with a 20 gig hdd however all the copies of 9.2.2 i come across and and burn on my 24" imac (Disk utility, master cd/dvd, toast, etc) will not boot, not even a original panther disk. So i put back in the old 4 gig hdd and loaded up 9.2 and mounted the cd(s) and they show up fine.
So i put the 20 gig hdd in a usb enclosure formatted as extended (not standard) and copied over the whole hdd from the 4gig to the 20gig and i checked for the icon on the system folder to make sure it was blessed. So i plug the 20 gig back into the imac and turn on with a pram reset and still no joy. Next stage was to remove the jumper from master to cableselect (no joy) and then taking it out completly and still the thing does not want to read cds at boot and will not recognise my copy on the 2ogig drive.
Thanks in advance for any input
