    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    @cheesestraws Oh man! Thank you so much for these results, I truly know your pain with how much fun this is to test. I'm incredibly grateful, I owe you one for sure! I've no idea what the deal is with the Q700 and the Zulu but it seems you have confirmed that specifically that model doesn't like...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    Hey cheesetraws, any chance you've had any luck with this? Not that it's urgent, I don't have time to look at it myself at the moment I'm busy prepping for my trip to the UK in a few days, but was just curious if you found anything. Cheers!

    Mac Pro RAID Card & Drive Compatibility

    When I was using my raid card in my 5,1 I never setup drives as a raid just used them individually, I also had to buy a drive plug adapter tray to work in my 5,1 for my drives as the connector was different on the drives I was using however they were 2.5" drives from a server so that may have...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    Ah gotcha, I've never gotten around to setting that up. I have so many copies of unlabeled install discs in random places now I'm always making new ones because I can't find the old ones. :ROFLMAO:

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    I hope I'm not alone I was starting to feel like I was losing my mind with this, I've put in a lot of time trying to get this to work over the past couple months here with breaks to let my frustration cool. Kept thinking if I just came back at it again with a cool head and fresh eyes but I just...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    How are you trying to do the install? Are you trying to do the install from scratch onto the Zulu using floppy install disk or optical CD? When I tried that for me it would hang part way through install everytime. I tried to end run around it by using premade .hda files I got from some other...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    That is a possibility, I did purchase the SD card at the same time as the Zulu to avoid any potential card issues figuring that was my best shot at avoiding compatibility problems, but I have some others I can try as well.

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    I've narrowed it down to 3 possibilities. 1. Both of my quadras are bad somehow. Doesn't make a lot of sense as I can resolve all issues by using a spinning disk, or even booting from an optical CD. But I suppose it's possible. 2. I am unlucky and my Zulu has some issue. 3. There is some...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    For me, sometimes it boots fully, sometimes sad mac and chimes, sometimes mac bomb and buss error, or type 10 error, sometimes your startup disc is bad...., sometimes hangs loading extensions. If I use a spinning disc nice little quantum that is still working knock on wood both of my machines...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    Wow you really jumped right into it! Thanks so much for taking a look at this, I've got two different Q700 and both have given me fits with the Zulu, so it will be really helpful to have this independent testing.

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    Nope doesn't really matter, if you can get anything to work reliably that would be a great data point for me. I would like 8.1 ultimately, but right now it's more of a test thing so 7.1, 7.5, 8.1 I mean really you pick. :) Greatly appreciate any insights from testing you do, it will be...

    Looking for anyone who has a Zulu SCSI and Quadra 700

    Pretty much what the title says, I'm looking for any members who have a Zulu SCSI and a Quadra 700 and are willing to do some experimenting with it. Really just looking for anyone who has been able to get a reliable OS any version installed and working on Zulu SCSI in a Q700. If you have one and...

    Question about how "Universal" MacOS Installers work.

    If I install Mac OS on a PowerPC machine using a "Universal Installer" would that drive then be able to boot in a 68k machine as well? Or would it not include the 68k bits because it is installing from a PowerPC machine? I'd like to be able to move a drive from a PowerPC machine into a 68k one...

    Auto Floppy Repair Info

    Right! It's such a simple thing, but I was so incredibly pleased with myself, might have inserted and ejected the disk a few more times than was truly necessary just because of the ear splitting grin it caused me to have. Yeah the Q700 is a wonderful machine, this one here is actually going to a...

    Auto Floppy Repair Info

    And thanks to that handy video I’ve got a working drive again. I will say the first eject mechanism I tried made noise but did not eject so I took one from another drive on the repair pile and put a fresh gear and lube in it and it worked a treat. I need to figure out what’s wrong with the first...

    The PM 7200 is weird.

    All you need now is a blanking plug for the floppy, seriously why was this ever an option?

    7100 no video

    Thanks for the tip, I just pulled my 7100 out of the mothballs after a month or so of not using it and it now chimes but doesn't give me video either. Was working fine before storing and wasn't that awful long ago.

    Auto Floppy Repair Info

    What's the best info and guides that are not dead links for complete drive rebuilds on the auto floppy drives? I have some I need to go through top to bottom, and I have found info scattered around but nothing all in one place, and a lot of dead links. Forgive me if my google foo is not up to...
