    Cool Good work

    Sorry I confused some issues in my earlier posts the Thanksgiving days rush.

    Looks like you have a good handle on it now.

    Default just wondering

    Is it possible that some of the clamshell ibooks could not be upgraded to OSX? The reason I guess is that a kind of reverse logic is involved. I have a 300 MHz clamshell that runs OS 8.6. Only some of the oldest 300 MHz iBooks could boot 8.6. Newer versions had to have a version of 9 in order to run. Perhaps those earliest machines do not have the ROM to boot OSX and no firmware update can fix it.
    Just wondering.
    Good luck, anyway.
