Chapter 21. Emergency Startup Measures

Macs enjoy an excellent reputation in terms of system reliability. They tend to be very stable with few instances where the system locks up or otherwise goes on the fritz. Despite such stability, you may encounter situations where Mac OS X Version 10.3 hangs up. In such a case, you can try various techniques to restart the system. If you have both Mac OS X Version 10.3 and OS 9.2 installed on separate disks, you also may encounter situations where you need to boot from the disk with the older operating system and then return to the Mac OS X Version 10.3 boot disk. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to:

Restart the system when it hangs.

Start up the system from your Mac OS X CD-ROM.

Boot the system from an OS 9.X disk (volume).

Return to booting the system from the Mac OS X disk (volume).

Rebuild the Classic Desktop if it hangs.
