Error Code -127 Upgrading from OS 9.1 to 9.2.1
Posted on 2005-04-01
I am trying to upgrade OS 9.1 to 9.2.1. I can successfully download the file, but during install the process stops and finder tells me I have an error code -127, which is internal file system error fsDSIntErr. I have now had this happen on two separate imacs. In both instances, I have installed OS 10.3 with the latest updates. To install the OS 9 updates, I have changed the start disk and booted up OS 9. I have applied all of the OS 9.1 updates including a bios updates. Both machines are imacs. Both have in excess of 512 mb RAM. One is a 300 MHz imac, the other 600 MHz imac.
The first time this happened, I figured it was a quirk on the PC. Now that it's happened twice, I think there's more to it.
Both machines normally boot to OS 10.3 and we have had no problems running classic applications (except that we keep getting remined to upgrade to os 9.2).
