    Hi everyone. I have a spare powermac 9,1 sporting linux in my shelf and wan't to ask if it is possible to boot MOS on this machine. The Latest changes made it possible to run MOS on 12,1 G5s. Ok unofficial. Hardwarewise the 9,1 is something like a hybrid of the imac g5. Which is also unoffical supported. So what stops MOS from booting on an 9,1?


    Regards
    Daniel

    Imac G5 on which 9.1 mobo is created is not supported by Morphos so this powermac is also not supported by morphos. You can use 7.3, 7.3 and 11.2. It is wide range of hardware.

    As zukow explained, the 9,1 PowerMac G5 from October 2004 is not based on the MorphOS-compatible 12,1 iMac G5 from October 2005 but on some older, MorphOS-incompatible iMac G5, most likely 8,1 from August 2004.

    These pics show 12,1 iMac G5 which MorphOS 3.12 can run on.
