  1. THis auction ended Newer Technology Macintosh IIfx series clock upgrade. (80,90,100 Mhz) A Newer Technology Apple Macintosh IIfx processor clock upgrade card. It pushes in the to processor slot and then the processor pushes in to the upgrade card and is clipped to the two of the processor pin. Do not have any instructions and Newer Technology could not find any either. It is a cool piece of old tech. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Newer-Technology-Macintosh-IIfx-series-clock-upgrade-80-90-100-Mhz-/303221044649 I don't know how long the auction photos will be up so I grabbed them:

    Netatalk SD Card Image?

    Lubuntu 17.10 I started with this and have not updated it as I don't want anything to break Netatalk 2.2.6 You are correct, Netatalk 3.0 dropped support for old Macs so I went with the last 2.x available. Running this didn't work with OS X so I added Samba. Samba 2:4.6.7 -- not sure if that is visible in the screen below. Very open Samba settings pointing to the same folder allows OS X and Windows, DOS, OS/2, BeOS as well as Mac OS 6-9 to access and share files. Very helpful in moving stuff around. Below show it running as VMware Fusion VM. I also have this same setup on an old IBM X31 laptop. I have been meaning to build a version of this VM to share here but there has been no time...

    Netatalk SD Card Image?

    Have a look here: While I don't have a RPi or SD image, I do have netatalk running on Lubuntu and all of my macs running OS 6-9 can connect to it.

    A Tale of IIfx Boards

    Here is my update... Board 1 got a working IIfx ROM installed and when powered on, no chime or video. I checked the PS and got: 5 Reds: 5.13 1 Yellow: 12.14 1 Blue: -12.11 1 White: 4.23 For fun I moved the outermost NuBus slot to the innermost slot and no joy. Any other suggestions on this board? I will likely be sending this one to AllMacs for caps. THx
  5. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... Years ago I got this board for the IIfx ROM in one of my SE/30's. It was only the board and I didn't know if it worked. I'll refer to this as Board 1. I wanted get this running so I bought a complete non-working IIfx earlier this year...this is Board 2. Board 2 came with: - 8 sticks of RAM that appear to be the same however I don't know how big each stick is - a NuBus video card that works when tested in my IIci - its speaker works when tested in my IIci - it has a broken battery tray on one of the batteries on the + side Here is want Board 2 looks like on the bench with 4 of the RAM sticks in Bank A: For the hard drive I have an Adtron SSD that has a Universal 7.0.1 install on it. Here is the broken battery tray: And the battery tray with a piece of metal making contact to the board so it should be providing power: When I used its power button that is missing the button part, nothing happens. Same for when I use the keyboard power On... It was the worst of times... Here is Board 1 with 4 of the RAM sticks from Board 2 in BANK A and all of the other components from Board 2: In this setup I removed the Spectrum Eng card from the ROM slot and used the ROM from Board 2. For the hard drive I have the same Adtron SSD that has a Universal 7.0.1 install on it. When I hit the power button or keyboard power button, the power supply fires up as I can hear its fan. This is good as it appears the PS is working as is power on on this board. Unfortunately: - I get no chime from the known working speaker - I get no video from the know working video card - I get no blinking from the SSD LED Again we have the worst of times... I do not have the black SCSI terminator however per the linked post, that sounds like it is not required. I very likely could be dealing with bad caps on both boards with Board 2 being in slightly better shape in that it at least fires up the power supply. I have not yet tried one of my other 2 IIfx ROMs to see if that might be the problem (Board 2's ROM is dead). Can anyone suggest anything else to try here? For instance, does the video card need to be in a different slot? Many thanks!

    SE/30 memory problem

    I have never played with A/UX. Is it possible to have it on a partition on the same drive running other version of 6 and 7?
  7. @Udo.Keller thanks much for this and the link to the *.pDF manual....that is gold! Since my OP I have acquired a IIfx so I'll see if I can get this running when time allows.
  8. Do you have the IIsi adapter for that 601?
  9. I have never seen these so I am added the photos form the action that ended:
  10. Hi All, Has anyone tried to 3D print feet for your IIci? When I got mine it had none and they appear to be hard to find... This seller sold his/her last set https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rubber-Foot-Macintosh-IIci-IIcx-Quadra-700-Vintage-Apple-Case-Bumper-Feet-/143139575183?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137

    SuperMac Thunder/24 ROM needed

    I have been following this thread with great interest as I have a Radius PrecisionColor 8-Xj video card with dead ROM that appears to be similar to the ROM on @ipv7net 's SuperMac card. @omidimo ... if you get your programmer working, I greatly appreciate you taking a pass at burning a ROM for my 8-Xj. I'll supply the chips...
  12. Makes sense. If I were a judge at the InterWebs Olympics, I'd give that article a 10. It is one of the best infonuggets I have come across.

    SE/30 CMD-CTRL-POWER Reset

    Here is the link to the board that needed to be added to the SeaSonic PS to get softpower:
  14. That guide helped me get the Lubuntu VM set up such that every OS that I have running can now share files. THx so much for pulling it together! I took notes as I was setting it up and these 2 links helped me get SAMBA set up so that it was accessible Windows/DOS/BeOS/OSX: SAMBA info for Win connections https://www.howtogeek.com/176471/how-to-share-fiwww.howles-between-windows-and-linux/ Promising DOS info https://www.lazybrowndog.net/freedos/virtualbox/?page_id=374

    SE/30 CMD-CTRL-POWER Reset

    Interesting thread. I have the SeaSonic PS in one of my SE/30s and a SeaSonic in my IIci. To get the softpower to work, I had to follow the lead of @superjer2000 in a post in this forum that I can't find. It is a small board that got the softpower working fine in the IIci with the SeaSonic PS. If one was to out that same board in a SE/30 with the SeaSonic PS, would it have softpower?
