Hi there,

I'm running 9.2.2 on a iMac G3 DV+ and I just received a serial cable 
and a Keyspan USA-28X.

I can't manage to install NCU on that machine : the installer gets stuck 
at "Preparing to install..", and nothing happens, besides the cursor 
Trying to kill the installer locks the Finder with another installer 
process, and trying to kill it spawns MacsBug continously.

Is this normal? Should I use another software to communicate with the 

Thanks for your help.


Have you turned off the extensions ? Hold down the Shift key whilst restarting your iMac. Select Easy Install, then proceed to install NCU. Restart your iMac normally.

Newton Never Dies. It just gets it's batteries recharged. 

Keep praying for rain ☔🙏☝
