    Macintosh SE/30 System 7.5.3 & 8.1 HDA image for ROM upgraded Macs

    Good Morning, I have seen quite a few tutorials on how to install System 7.5.3 & 8.1 so I decided to create my own HDA image that will work on a bluescsi (and possibly other such devices) that will work for an SE/30 with an upgraded ROM (such as the MACSIMM or BMOW). The image has not been...

    Patched Hard Disk .HDA File for Blue SCSI System 8.1 for the SE/30?

    I'll try to get one working tonight, shouldn't be too bad to do and will give me an excuse to fire up the SE/30!

    Color Classic won't turn on - Analog board issue

    Could be, not sure what points it needs to be in contact at to ground? I haven't tested the AB fully outside of the case because i'm not sure if thats safe to do without the flyback being connected.

    Color Classic won't turn on - Analog board issue

    An Update to this: I've replaced a few more common failure components. I replaced the RIFA cap that was cracked in the above photo along with a film cap. I also replaced the 1N4148 diodes and an IRFBC40 MOSFET. Board is still having the same issue and I feel like I'm coming up short on ideas...

    Color Classic won't turn on - Analog board issue

    Good Evening Looking for some help with with an analog board issue I'm having. I recently acquired a Color Classic that doesn't power on. With the logic board removed, flipping on the power switch with it plugged in creates a constant clicking sound. Here is what I've tried thus far: Full...

    Best way to transfer data to Mac SE

    I was able to get Cubase v1.0 to work on my SE, but couldn't get 2.5.1 to work though I didn't fiddle around with it too much. I was however able to get 2.5.1 to work on my SE/30 but that is running 7.5.3 so perhaps it might work on the SE.

    Best way to transfer data to Mac SE

    Something like a zip drive would work, its pretty inexpensive storage. If you plan on doing future work on the SE then you could go with a Blue SCSI or SCSI2SD and replace the old hard drive with a nice large SD card with all the storage you need.

    Macintosh SE/30 Transformation

    I have a 2 device SCSI Cable coming in so that I can image the original HDD. The original has 7.5.3 installed on it and seems to be from the University of Wisconsin library, all kinds of interesting links for getting library resources (which no longer work).

    Macintosh SE/30 Transformation

    I have always wanted a Macintosh SE/30 but the prices that they go for always seemed out of reach. I have been watching a lot of repair videos on them since it is an area of interest, then when one popped up for sale in "working just prior to listing but now not booting", I knew I had to go for...

I walked through the steps on the gethub wiki, i used a premade image , I tried a few, they were named HD00_512.hda or HD10_512.hda , looking through the log that was saved on the SD card it had that the card initialized and had the two columns with the names placed under...

    Macintosh SE internal SCSI power but no read

    Good Morning - I have a Macintosh SE that I recently acquired, it has a 40MB Apple Quantum drive, when powered on, the disk spins but does not attempt to read. I opened the drive and made sure that the head isn't stuck and fixed the sticky head stops (they weren't very sticky but still worked...
