SE/30 RAM upgrade problem


Well-known member
Finally got the Cat-5 Ethernet card for my SE/30, and it works beautifully. Now I want to run MacSSH and AUX on it.

I upgraded my Quadra 700 to 68 MB and put its old 4MB SIMMs in the SE/30, but it won't boot with them in there.

I've tried putting the 4x4MB SIMMs in Bank A and leaving the 1MB SIMMs in bank B, but it still won't boot. Any ideas?

Are the 4MB SIMMs so called "composite SIMMs", i.e. they are constructed of a lot of smaller memory chips and some logic? This might cause problems.
