    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    I was lucky my se/30 (without knowing at the time) came with a network card, the seller didn’t know either as he sold my se/30 including card for £60. it’s worth a look there’s been some inventive ways of getting them online so have a search through the site. If you have another mac you can use apple talk to a new machine as a pass through but its very slow. Best to keep an eye out on eBay for a bargain. Here’s mine online

    I use 7.5.5 For networking and internet as well as later desk top publishing like photoshop 4.1 i have my Se/30 online and the networking is more advanced and it also allowed a later browser that just about works in the modern world (just)

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Watched it all. Great job it gives me the heads up before i go ahead and try it myself and what tools i may need, I’m still a bit worried as I’ve not done this before but you have to start somewhere and having 30 yr old electronics as a hobby i need to try. I have a rev 1 board from an SE I figure i try it on there then repay my original board afterwards once i get my confidence:)

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Fabulous us novices would be lost without good folks like yourself! I’ve saved it to my home screen for now as I’ll be looking to perform the surgery in 4-5 weeks time (several commitments over the next 3 weekends thanks to the wife). Luckily i paid to have the motherboard done so just the analogue board and Sony PSU like your vid which i want to do myself

    Great thank you JDW thats just what i needed. Ive only just ordered a soldering iron so a complete novice. Would you also have a component list with the values to hand as well so i know I’m ordering the right caps and diodes?

    You have a few other compacts, a plus? What do you do with those? Nice idea the scsi in the sc20 case

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Wow i like the sound of your setup I would definitely like several os’s as there’s some games I want that won’t work on 7.5.5 that i want. I’ve just brought an analogue board and power supply which I’m looking to re cap soon and change over as I’m getting a bit of screen wobble/flicker so after that i’ll look at hhd and fresh installs, also scsi2sd at the same time but both the later options may not be until next year after house move. I already have 128mb ram but no accelerator. ah well i have a few pics already

    Blimey you have your system setup sweet, I didn’t think you could even run 7.6.1 or 8.1 without accelerators and hacks. i’d like to be able to run multiple OS on mine although only considered 6.06, 7.1 & 7.5.5. how did you install all of those? how do format your hard drives into the correct sizes for each os? i have 1gb internal hd & scsi avid external 2gb hd, zip drive and have it networked to my PowerPc and g3 imac.

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Yes thats the notes i used. The Hack itself from what I remember was pretty easy just changing something like 05 to 08 In a few res edit files. never heard of Wish i were? I have no idea what it does! So do you have 8.1 on at SE/30?

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    It may have had the flashing disc come to think of it. I can’t quite remember

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    It was a while back, from what i recall just blank grey screen

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    Ah sorry I probably wasn’t very clear because i put it in, took it out etc.. yes i went back to the standard Rom with mode32 as it worked. I had tried the hack with 7.5.5 and couldn’t get it to work unless it was using just the rominator with 7.1 and the internal 8mb on the rom simm but it wouldn’t boot with my hard drives so i just put it back to standard and back with mode32 and live with the ram check
  15. SE30_Neal

    SE/30: RAM configuration with 16MB SIMMs

    No mode32 is for 24bit dirty rom, rominator is 32bit clean. yes you need to res edit system code but the process means it needs to be done on 7.5.1 i think then add the 7.5.3 and 7.5.5. There’s instructions on the rominator site. For me i have my se/30 setup nicely with a bunch of software and utilities so didn’t want to wipe a 2gb worth of stuff and re-install it all for the clean rom and quicker boot time. I still have it and will likely add it in future when i have time to do some hdd upgrades. neal
