  1. The hard disk came in this morning, and that got it going. I guess my SSD was just being picky about the older SATA standard. Thanks a lot.
  2. Thanks for the tip, I’ve placed an order for a cheap SATA hard disk, and we’ll see if that works any better.
  3. When connected internally to either SATA port, Disk Utility does not see it. When connected via USB with an external enclosure, it appears in Disk Utility and can be formatted, but the installer refuses to accept it because it is not bootable.
  4. There are no jumpers on this drive. Is that the problem? Does it need to be a SATA1 drive?
  5. Tower. Model A1047. As far as I can see, the cables look fine, and I tried both the upper and lower drive slots, with the same results.
  6. I just picked up a PowerMac G5 for a steal, but it was missing its hard drive. Right now the only spare SATA device I have laying around is a 64 GB SSD. I can get the machine to boot from the 10.4 install disc, but it won't recognize the drive no matter what I try. I did try connecting it with an external USB enclosure, and it saw it then, but wouldn't let me install the OS because it can't boot off USB. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Replacement HD in SE/30?

    You can format the drive with your Mac itself.

    MacToTheFuture SE/30 10/100 Ethernet card

    This is getting exciting. Once you are selling these, I’ll definitely need to grab one.

    PCMCIA TV Tuner ?

    Keep in mind that most capture cards and such add significant lag, so they tend not to be suitable if you want to use them as a display for a game system.

    Fan replacement for a Mac SE/30

    Interesting, because I'm using that same fan full-speed, and I can barely hear that it's running at all with the case all closed up.

    Apple Multiple Scan 15AV

    The brightness is a knob, so I'd assume it wouldn't be digital?

    Apple Multiple Scan 15AV

    I was looking away when it happened, but my friend who was here says it happened in a split second.

    Apple Multiple Scan 15AV

    I have an Apple Multiple Scan 15AV that was working perfectly until the other day. It started off just fine, but about 30 seconds after powering up, it suddenly became very dark, and this has persisted since. The brightness knob also no longer seems to have any effect at all. I'm guessing this may be the caps, but can someone confirm that? And does anyone have a list of caps for the monitor or know someone selling cap kits?

    Help Testing SE/30 ROM?

    I've now received my ROM SIMM with this image on it, and can confirm for myself that it works as expected.
  15. I was aware of that, but I really wanted much a much narrower set of modifications that what the BMOW ROM offered. For instance, I wanted all the original graphics and sounds to remain in place.
