Help! I am stuck!
Posted on 2002-06-14
I desperately need help now.
I am using OS X in my new iMac. Today, I tried to switch to OS9 by turning the option in "Startup disk" under the system perference. And then I rebooted the Mac to go in the OS 9. However, I wait quite a long time in the start up screen in Mac 9(longer than before). Finally I go into OS 9 screen, but I see nothing, no icon, no Apple icon on the top left corner, but, a empty textbox with black border. I can't type anything inside. The keyboard don't work, although I can move the mouse around. Nothing I can do other than that. I really need help from anyone Mac expert of you. In order for you know better about my situation, here is a summary of the situation I am in this moment:
1. I am in a OS 9 now, I got the OS 9 wallpaper.But, other than that I see nothing, no icon, no menu, no apple icon on the top left hand corner.
2. my mouse is movable, but my keyboard don't response at all, not even the "num lock" light.
3. There is a black empty textbox appear after it went into the OS 9, but there is no cursor inside the box.
Anyone know how to help me to back to OS X, cause I have many important data in my HD. Do I need to reformat the HD and install the OS again? No, I just don't want to lose it. How can I switch back to OS X, in this case? Help! Help!
