Now that my Classic II (right now running 7.0.1) has been recapped and is working, I'm looking to put a larger internal drive in it. I have Jag's CD of classic Mac stuff and I'd like to have a drive big enough to hold the whole thing, and then some.
I also have an old Wallstreet running 8.6 which is hooked up to the Classic II via LocalTalk.
I was able to get an Addonics SCSI-IDE converter (and a 50-68 pin adapter) so that I can, in theory, put an IDE drive in the Classic II. I'll need to initialize that drive and then clone the old SCSI drive onto it.
So, my questions:
- JDW mentioned in this thread that the amazing Wallstreet he obtained came with a AKE USB 2.0 cardbus. Is that this one, and would that specific one work with my Wallstreet?
- The smallest IDE I have is 40GB. If I'm understanding what I'm reading, I'll need to make some partitions. Once I have that drive hooked up to the Wallstreet via a USB cardbus, I should be able to initialize and partition the drive via the Wallstreet's Drive Setup utility, correct? OR will I need to pick up some more adapters and use the HD SC Setup program, hooking the new drive to the Wallstreet via SCSI?
- How do I make a bootable clone of the original SCSI drive on the Classic II to a partition on the new drive?
I've done some research, but am still a little unclear. I know the info is out there somewhere on this, and if this is all in one obvious place and I'm missing it, please point me in the right direction and I apologize for bugging you with my classic Mac noobie-ness.
Oh, and one other little thing... now that I recapped my Classic II and got it working, word got around in my neighborhood and now I seem to be a Classic Mac Magnet. My neighbor just gave me his old (non working) SE which I think has the /30 upgrade. I've yet to crack that one open yet... it's pretty cool though!
