I bought an old Bondi Blue iMac from ebay that came with OS X installed. I find that it runs very slow. I would like to put OS 8 or 9 on it for a retro feel but I have had no luck. I have a retail version of both OS 8.6 and OS 9 (bought legally) but neither one installs. I insert the cd and restart the machine. I then hold down the "C" key and I can hear it access the cd. About 30 seconds to a minute later it boot into OS X. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help,
