Boot Errors with MacOS 8.6
Posted on 2003-02-23
I'm operating Mac OS 8.6 and having boot problems with my G4. The problem began while trying to use Quark v4.1. The fonts did not seem to initialize, with type 1 errors. I tried to disable the extensions to see if Quark would start, but this caused an internal error (i.e. "the bomb"). I then attempted to zap the PRAM, but it continues to not be able to boot.
Now, I just need to access my mac. When I boot, I receive a folder icon with the "Mac Face" and question mark icon flashing inbetween. What dose this mean and how can I restore my computer without wiping out my computer and reinstalling?
I'm not very technically savy when it comes to Mac's so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
