Greetings. Thank you all for help getting the Macintosh II up and running. I installed 8 megs of memory in it using 8 1mb simms, it had 2mb in it to begin with using all 8 simm holders. Those memory chips seemed smaller than the ones I am using now. Anyways I have system 7.0 on it and it works but seems to be glitchy. Files are not there when I restart the computer, I can not change the name of the HDD to Macintosh, always returns to untitled. Needs to be restarted like three times before it will be usable and the icons (like in the apple menu or control panel) wont be there until the third reset. They appear as just a blank sheet of paper with the corner folded down. Very strange. Once the third reset is done it works just fine. Seems buggy though and I have never seen this on a computer before. This is the oldest system I have ever used. Any insight on this issue perhaps? Also, is the Macintosh II only able to display 16 colors? I have two different Macintosh II video cards, the Macintosh II display card and the Macintosh II High resolution display card. Both only get 16 colors. Thank you all for your time. Nick.
