Performa 200 - Original Loaded Software?

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to restore my Performa 200 to its original state. These computers never came with system restore disks; original owners needed to use Apple Backup to create them. (This was surprisingly common on cheap PCs at the time too; I own an IBM PS/1 which also has a backup program and came without disks for Windows 3.1, DOS 6, and the pre-installed MS Works 2.0).

 

The good news? I was able to restore the Performa system software from backup.

The bad news? I didn't get a backup of the other software.

 

I know all Performas came with ClarisWorks, and the 200 definitely came with version 1.x based on the timeframe. I own a complete boxed copy of ClarisWorks 1.0 so I know I'm in good shape there. I also have Mouse Practice.

 

What else came with the Performa 200? It strikes me as too early to have anything BUT ClarisWorks. Some newer ones did come with other programs (I know the 550 had Super Munchers and I think a bunch of models had Quicken) but I can't seem to recall any other titles offhand for this and even have gone so far as to look things up!

 

I do have an 80MB drive in it so I know that's an original part. The 200 only came with that capacity if I remember correctly. I also have recapped analog and logic boards. It's just the software bit that is really getting to me here!! Someone on here had a boxed 200 a few years back so someone is bound to know around these parts!!

 

Additionally, I'm missing the manuals...anyone have an extra they'd want to sell?

I just recently recapped a Performa 200.  I will have to look on the hard drive.  I am pretty sure it has the original software, outside of someone upgrading it to System 7.5 but I know it has Claris Works on it. I will check.

 

Does the Apple Legacy CD-ROM have the disk images on it?  I have used that to get the original software for my LC, and IIsi.

Sounds good, keep me posted!!

 

I don't have the Legacy Recovery CD so I can't vouch for it, although I'd guess it would only have the system software and not the ClarisWorks, etc. I do have the System 7.0 CD and the only software other than system utilities on it is HyperCard 2.0.
