I'm pretty new to Macs and never was great with pc's. I bought a power mac 7200 with os8.1. Can't download much or sometimes it works and sometimes it's a big mess of gerbelldeygoop~^}}*<::?@%$&^(*)(_(EIO_)$$#"P{, that's what I got when I tried to download os9.2....and I think I have discovered thru much research, this model cannot be upgraded? Is that true? Also I need to have MRJ2.1 , for lots of stuff I want to download or view or something. Cannot find it anywhere and if I could ...could I even download it? It was only $40 and is great for email and internet but the first aid disk says 7200 needs repair...and...volume repairs needed. Help!!! Is there hope?

Correct, OS 9.1. However, you cannot download (legally) an update from 8.x to 9.x.
That has to be purchased.


The 7200 supports up to System 9.1, I believe.

Thanks for your answer. I'll see what I can do with that info.:mrgreen: :cheesy: :) :) :) I don't know what any of these little guys mean but hopefully they are good. Tata!
