Have Computer Name and Photo in About This Macintosh?

Recommended Posts

Just finished installing 7.5.5 on my Quadra 700 (Thanks to that pinned guide!!). When I installed 7.0.1, under about this Mac it said Quadra 700 and had a picture of one. I didn't like 7.0.1 and initialized the drive blah blah blah, but now in 7.5.5 it just says macintosh with that drawing of one with the blue and yellow and red... this happened when I reinstalled in on the original hard drive a while ago too. I'm using a legacy disc.

 

Is there a way to edit the system files to make it show Quadra 700 and the photo?

There is a utility of some kind to display at least the name but the title escapes me. Apple did away with this when clones came about (although part of me thinks they did it after coming out with a dozen or so variants of the same model, i.e. the Quadra 630).

On System 7 and up, dragging any extension/control panel or any system file actually to the system folder will place it where it needs to go. Most of the time, you don't even need to read anything ;)
