I've just done some testing here on my 9.2.2 ISO and I've found the

- Removing "Apple Audio Extension" appears to prevent some kind of
corruption which allows MacsBugs to give non-corrupt stack traces

- The resulting stack trace points at "AINI 8042 05AE Startup ASLM PPC"

- Further removing "Open Transport ASLM Modules" allows boot to proceed
nearly all the way except for a hang just before the progress bar
reaches the end

- Finally removing "Multiprocessing" allows boot to proceed all the way
to the desktop

Alfonso/John can you confirm whether removing these 3 extensions works
for your images too? If you are able to run the OS 9 installer all the

before the next boot, do you end up with a bootable OS 9 HD image?
