View Full Version : New G4. Re-partition?

03-23-2002, 11:40 PM
I am waiting for my new G4 1ghzDP to arrive and am trying to get up to speed prior to its arrival.
Should I repartition the internal drive and seperate the 9.x system software from the 10.x right away?
I'll be using the computer for FCP 3.0 and daily email/ websurfing.

Hi ya Roger,

Congrats on the new 1DP!!! Hot Stuff, I'm green.

You will absolutely want to partition out your OSX. I would also recommend that you make a small partition and install Classic in it. Accessing your OS9 partition for running Classic in X can cause no end to trouble.

A couple of good threads to see what others are doing: http://www.macgurus.com/ubb/Forum23/HTML/000121.html http://www.macgurus.com/ubb/Forum23/HTML/000122.html

Have a nice evening,

Thanks Rick. I had to get it. Apple is such an evil temptress!

I thought it would be best to start the new computer off correctly before installing all the toys.
