DId you choose the format and install option?
If so, you will have to reinstall OS 9.
Have you set the Classic preference in System Preferences?
Have you set the Startup disk in System Preferences?
If so, was System 9 a startup option?
I recently upgraded an iMac 400 Indigo from OS 9.2 to OS 10.2.8. It wasn't the first time I have done that. This time, however, when I tried to install an older software program, I got a message saying that the classic environment couldn't be found. This never happened before. What can I do to restore the classic environment so I can run older software? I appreciate any help you can give me.
