    Problem Installing "Born Again" on IIfx

    @DracheMitch Before the site crash someone posted that link. Might be a last resort if I can't determine why Born Again won't accept my OEM 8.1 disc.

    Apple PC 5.25 Drive for the SE and Mac II (and perhaps others)

    If and when I get my IIx running, I'll load System 6.0.8 and try out the PC drive. Both Varta batteries are dead and I need to find someone who can solder in some battery holders a-la IIfx.

    Apple PC 5.25 Drive for the SE and Mac II (and perhaps others)

    A couple of months ago, I purchased two Apple PC 5.25" drives on eBay along with the hard-to-find (but necessary) NuBus controller card for the Mac II series. I had several threads showing my progress in getting the PC drive to work with System 7.1 on my IIfx to view PC/DOS documents from my...

    Problem Installing "Born Again" on IIfx

    Any other tips or is this another doomed project?

    Problem Installing "Born Again" on IIfx

    Prior to the site crash, I discussed in another thread installing OS 8.1 on my IIfx using an installer script called Born Again. I was able to locate a legit OS 8.1 install disc on eBay on the cheap, however Born Again for some reason does not recognize my OS 8.1 disc (even though it mounts on...

    someone's conquest on reddit..

    Wouldn't mind finding a working HP DeskWriter. I still have the install disks and manuals for my mom's old 3.1

    Apple ADC Monitor to Macintosh II?

    Yeah I know. I was hoping it would have worked without having to purchase a converter.

    Apple ADC Monitor to Macintosh II?

    Prior to the site crash, I noted that I had purchased an Apple ADC-to-DVI adapter for my 22" Cinema Display. Unfortunately nothing happened when I connected the Cinema Display to my IIfx. Didn't matter if I used my High-Res card or the 8.24 GC card. Fast-forward a few months: my 19" LaCie...

    Apple ADC Monitor to Macintosh II?

    Just wondering if anyone has successfully connected an ADC-type monitor to a Mac II with the high-res Apple NuBus video card.

    AppleColor High-Res (M1297) Tear Down

    The chassis is now removed from the front bezel. The only problem I incurred while carefully lifting the chassis was the CRT board separated from the neck of the CRT. So now the pins from the picture tube are no longer connected to the CRT board. I doubt I damaged the picture tube as I did not...

    AppleColor High-Res (M1297) Tear Down

    Hi Everyone, I had an unfortunate accident with my M1297 monitor early last year. I was cleaning my workstation when one of the legs on my desk buckled causing the monitor to fall. While the CRT and its internals were undamaged, a small part of the front bezel broke off on the bottom left...

    A Tale of Two Quadras: 950 and WGS 95

    Drove to Bolton today (which is about half hour from Brampton) to pick up these machines: Both work, but are unfortunately missing their keys to control the lock mechanism. The 950 has 45MB of RAM and I believe the WGS 95 has 16MB of RAM. The seller included an Apple NuBus video card, and a...

    Macintosh IIfx Won't Read Audio CDs

    Last night, I hooked up my Apple CD 300e Plus external drive to try out the Apple Service Source discs I received during the DuoDock conquest earlier this year. While these Apple-formatted discs read perfectly on the 300e, I was unable to play any music/audio CDs on the drive (I was asked to...

    Crackling/Static Noises from Apple Multiple Scan 17"

    Behold, the damn thing in all its EOL glory!

    Crackling/Static Noises from Apple Multiple Scan 17"

    Picked this up on Thursday - a 2004 LaCie 19" Electron Blue IV.  It came with the Blue Eye Calibration tool, original manuals, and cover. Although the monitor works perfectly and saw very light use over its lifetime, the seller was a heavy smoker. I've managed to remove most of the smell...

    Crackling/Static Noises from Apple Multiple Scan 17"

    I believe I've partially figured out the source of that crackling noise. Just look at all that brittle plastic on the top rear housing!  So if anyone would like to donate a rear case for this monitor, I'll try to keep it running for a little while longer. Otherwise, she's scrap.

    The DuoDock Returns (w. some extra goodies).

    Started to tear apart the 230 to determine if any of the aluminum capacitors had leaked on the logic board. Fortunately, the board appears to be in very good shape despite showing symptoms of failing capacitors (i.e., low sound): As mentioned in the first post, the screen suffers from...

    The DuoDock Returns (w. some extra goodies).

    Playing around with the Color OneScanner on the DuoDock: My intention is to replace my Visioneer PaperPort VX now that I have an "authentic" Apple scanner. The Visioneer works perfectly, and is in good shape for its age. I'm asking $5 + shipping if anyone wants it (cord and SCSI cable...

    The DuoDock Returns (w. some extra goodies).

    About five years ago, I purchased an allegedly working Apple DuoDock from eBay in excellent condition. When it arrived, the top housing was cracked (seller later compensated for the damage), and it refused to power up even with a known working PowerBook Duo 230 I borrowed from my old high...
