Strange OS 8.1 problem

I recently installed OS 8.1 on a 4400/200. Everything looked ok till I rebooted the computer. The happy MAC appeared on the screen there was some HD access and after this nothing happened. No error message but the computer didn`t start to boot. So I tried to reinstall OS 8.1 I put the CD in and restarted the MAC. And what happpened. The Mac started booting from the HD becuase I forgot to press the C key at startup. I can work with OS 8.1 when the installation CD is in. (It must be the installation CD). What can I do to work with OS 8.1 without having the CD in.

Power Mac 4400 Update 1.0 is out. It is only for Power Macintosh 4400, Power Macintosh 7220, Motorola StarMax series, and the
UMAX Aegis computer (sold only in Asia) running Mac OS 8.1: "The Power Macintosh 4400 Update contains two patches. The first
patch corrects a memory corruption problem caused by Mac OS Extended (HFS+) that results in systems that will not boot after being
upgraded to Mac OS 8.1. The symptom is a hang during startup (for example, when the Happy Mac icon appears, or when the "Welcome
to Mac OS" screen appears, or while the extensions are loading). This problem can occur even if there are no Mac OS Extended volumes
in use. The second patch corrects an obscure problem with the ATA Manager. The symptom is what appears to be a hung system -- the
mouse pointer will move but the system does not respond (it is in an infinite loop). If you are using a PC Compatibility Card, you will not be able to switch back to the Mac OS environment. This update also corrects this problem."

• Find the update at Apple's website, here's the address:

Goodluck
