Our PM9600 was working just fine, until this morning. It started to boot, loaded all the extensions, then the bomb!! System error type -127.

I tried rebooting several times, same problem. Tried booting from Norton, Tech Tool Pro, and Disk Warrior, but the same error appears. I tried holding down the S key to turn off extensions, and also held down the C key to start from the CDs, but didn't work.

Any ideas? Is this PM toast? What can I do to get it to boot and try using a disk utility application?

Hello:

Did it give you any other information with the error code? For example: fsDSIntErr (which is an HFS error indicating an internal file system error) or dsHMenuFindErr (a Menu Management Error indicating it could not find HMenu's parent in MenuKey)?

You are using Classic? Or did you upgrade to OS X?

Did you try booting with your OS system CD? If you are able to successfully, then empty your trash and reboot normally and see if that solves the problem.

Hope that helps! :)

Sorry, I forgot to clarify that I'm running OS 9.1, with a G3 500mHz upgrade. I tried using my old G3 startup disk from my dead G3 Blue & White. That didn't work either.

OK, so you do not have the original OS CD that came with the machine, correct?
I bought this PM9600 from LEM. Just received it in the mail about a week ago. The PM9600 has been upgraded with a G3 500Mhz card, and we do not have the original install disk.

I'm guessing that we are stuck, and cannot proceed further. I don't want to spend anymore money on this beast. Maybe I'll try taking my old HDs from my dead PM7300, and see if those will boot the machine. I can also take the G3 upgrade card from the dead PM7300 and see if that will make any difference.

I've never opened up a PM9600 ..... Maybe I'll tackle that project Monday?
