    [SOLVED] Revert to Mac OS

    I've got an old Mac G3 that I installed Xubuntu on. I installed it to a second hard drive. It was a great experiment, but I'm to impatient to wait for anything to happen. I did a bunch of updates this morning, as it wasn't hooked up to my network, there were over 250 updates and it took almost 3 hours to complete the update. I would like to revert back to the Mac os. What do I have to do to get rid of yaboot?

    If you hold down the alt/option key while booting up, does this show you the icon of the Mac-os partition from which you can designate the default startup?

    Just a guess since I don't have any real mac-os experience previous to OSX.

    If you have the MacOS install disks, just install MacOS over Xubuntu. It will completely erase Xubuntu and you'll have MacOS back. If you don't have the MacOS install disks, you're out of luck.

    The quick and dirty way is unplug the drive with xubuntu and restart. Then set mac os as the start up disk. apple menu / control panels / startup disk

    I disconnected the drive that Xbuntu was installed on and it now boots up into OS 9

    Thanks to all that answered this post.
