    Cloning a SCSI disk

    Hi, I'm looking for program to make a full clone (as a raw disk image) of a harddrive. Yes, I know Disk Copy, but it appears that it can only make a image of a single partition.

    LaserWriter II NT

    Bought this "tank" yesterday for fifty swiss francs.. I was able to test it with my Colour Classic, and it took a very long time to transfer some basic text to it – a lot longer than it takes to print on my 4/600PS if I remember correctly (haven't used it for a while now). I really like its...

    Macintosh IIsi – Purple screen with ATX PSU: Problem solved!

    Some months ago (before the great crash), I asked for help with a freshly recapped Macintosh IIsi which was showing a purple screen for 30 seconds until it booted. It appears that the ADB microcontroller (or something else) holds down the reset signal for this amount of time. Symptoms: CPU...
