View Full Version : Yamaha CDR/RW bootable or not?

I'm considering getting the Yamaha 8824(SCSI) and was wondering if I can boot up from this drive if I install it internally in a PPC 9600/G3/400 ???

I have a Yamaha 6416S that is bootable in a Power Tower Pro using InTech's CD/DVD SpeedTools 5.6. Whether it boots using the "C" or CMD-OPT-SHIFT-DELETE keys seem to depend on the SCSI ID you give it.

Well, before the aliens abducted my Yamaha-ha 4416S burner, SpeedTools and ID3 allowed the wonderful "C" startup from a CD. Nowadays, I just keep a 24x Apple drive installed at ID3 for good measure. Gotta love having lotsa bays to work with! http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

DogSM, was it the Reptilians or the Greys? Just curious.
