    Mac Plus with 4MB of RAM

    I run a Macintosh Classic with 4MB, which is similar to a Plus, but not sure if the Classic already has a fan.

    .img files with old Macs

    Have you tried using 10.4's Disk Utility to convert the image and then try to open it on OS9?

    Best ROM disk for ROMinator / GGLabs?

    I finally found the trick to getting an 8.1 System suitcase to recognize HFS+ is including the 'Text Encoding Converter' extension! But this is 592K and the 8.1 System suitcase is more than 6M... I'm still searching how to slim it down. At least it will fit in a 12M disk image, so it should fit on the 8MB ROMinator II... romdisk-recovery8.1-12MB.dsk recovery8.1-8M.rom

    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    I have read about getting TCP through LocalTalk (PhoneNet adapters are cheap) to another old Mac which has ethernet can serve as a gateway. I haven't yet had time to try this (I need to clean out a lot of space before I can get to this project) so if you have PhoneNet adapters (and terminators) and another old Mac (modem/printer port and ethernet) just laying around, you can try it out.

    Hrm... so changing or removing that message might take some more free time than I have lately. At least I've now verified that the image boots fine in a real SE/30 using BMOW's FloppyEmu in HD20 mode.

    Does anyone know how to remove this startup message with resedit or equivalent? Everything still technically works, it's just an big annoyance to click or press Return on every boot. OR!!! Is is possible to take this text and modify it to provide the user with some instructions for recovery?

    So here is my System 8 attempt compressed down to 1.5M, complete with: System 8.0 732K / Finder 8.0 294K Apple CD-ROM 5.4.2 93K ISO 9660 File Access 5.2 20K MountImage 1.2b2 12K Apple HD SC Setup 7.5.1 87K Disinfectant 3.7.1 347K Disk Copy 4.2 24K Disk First Aid 8.1 153K System Picker 1.1a3 38K Virtual DVD Utility 1.0d1 41K Stuffit Expander will technically still fit into the 2.25M base, but then the image will not compress down to less than the 1.5M limit. romdisk-recovery8-2.25MB.dsk romdisk-recovery8-1.5MB.fc8

    While the Virtual DVD Utility is small, I'm not sure how I can fit those other utilities in there and still compress down to 1.5M. I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to get an 8.1 System thinned down, since I want to get permanent HFS+ support. I'm kicking myself for not getting one of the 8M MEGAs when they were still available, since that seems to be the only real option for an 8.1 System. Since I only have a 2M ROM SIMM to work with right now, I'm able to get the 8.0 System from the disk tools image working in a 2.25M ROM Disk, but it is annoying with the 'should be run from floppy' every boot, and I'm not sure how to get rid of that. I've been trying to get this to compress down to less than the 1.5M with fc8, but haven't had much luck with all the tools I want to include into it. I need to compromise on what tools to include that will all fit into the 2.25M image that will ALSO compress to less than 1.5M.

    What is the smallest 8.1 System suitcase? Ideally I'd like to get an 8.1 System suitcase to get HFS+ support. This would definitely be doable in the 8M (Mega) SIMM, but unfortunately the 2M is the largest SIMM I can get.

    That works! It's only 12K, so it can still fit without removing anything! Any other software which could be useful for emergency/recovery?

    Best Archive For System 6/7 Macs?

    To clarify: +1 for the ZIP drive recommendation and initialize the discs on the SE with the patched Apple HD SC Setup utility to make them both recognizable and bootable. However, if it's just for transferring files, it might be better to use the Iomega tools to initialize them, as then you'll be able to eject it while booted into the OS. However, the downside is that it overwrites the driver on the disk, so if you do have a bootable disk with the Apple driver, then the Iomega tools will overwrite that driver when the disk is inserted.

    Best ROM disk for ROMinator / GGLabs?

    Disk Copy 4.2 is only 24KiB, but 6.3.3 is 1MiB. Oh, 4.2 doesn't have the ability to mount images? Grr... how do I squeeze it into a 2M boot image with everything else?

    Using fc8, it does indeed shrink down to less than 1.5MB. Ideally I'd like to use the same microchip drive icon that the Macintosh Classic uses for its CMD+OPT+X+O ROM booting. romdisk-recovery-2.25MB.dsk romdisk-recovery-1.5mb.fc8
  15. My goal is to have the best 'recovery' boot in the ROM, which would allow fixing as many different situations as possible. So far, with the base 2.25MB image before compression I have been able to fit: System Folder 7.0.1 (patched) Apple HD SC Setup 7.5.1 Disinfectant 3.7.1 Disk Copy 4.2 Disk First Aid 7.0.1 Stuffit Expander 4.0.2 I'd like to include ResEdit, but it's more than 500K, which can't fit without removing some of the utilities I think are more substantial. Any other ideas?
