Re: Can no longer boot into Mac OS
I have never had cmd-opt-p-r work for resetting the pram. Nor does
booting into OF and executing 'reset-nvram ; set-defaults ; reset-all'.
I know because PT LE 6.0 won't boot with my mbox (in OSX) and the error
it returns is that my date/time is off (it is set by NTP) and I must
reset my pram.

Thanks for the help, Chris. Actually, resetting Open Firmware
involved more than just holding down Cmd-Opt-P-R at startup. I had
to open the machine (no easy task on a PM 9500), remove the pram
battery, and leave it all sit for 12 hours or so. After I put
everything back together it booted right into my Mac partition.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, though.
May I ask why it had to sit for 12 hours? I would have thought that
holding down cmd-opt-p-r through three chimes would be sufficient.
