I have an iMac 350 slot loading machine that is specified to run OSX. It has 128mb RAM and plenty HD space and latest firmware. It currently has no problems with doing anything and is running OS 9.2.2 with no issues. When attempts to install / run OS X (any version including Panther) it crashes horribly. I have had the RAM and the Hard Drive tested and apparently have been told by an Apple Dealer that the mother board / processor is stuffed and that is why it can't run OS X. They say OS 9 and below are not so finicky and will run fine even though the motherboard is not good but with OS X it will have problems if there is an issue with this. Does this sound correct and/or has anyone else had similar problems? Any comments welcomed?
