about powerbook 170

Recommended Posts

Is there a system disk that I can use to boot a powerbook 170, and which can be ejected to use another disk just as it was with the old macs? The HD of my powerbook died, I can only boot it with a system 7.1 disk, but it does not allow eject, and the machine only has a floppy drive

System 6.0.7 (and 6.0.8?) for early PowerBooks was a modification of a Japanese-only version of System 6 with KanjiTalk done by 68k MLAers some time back. Definitely possible.

Yes I did it on a dozen successfully (Conner 20 and 40MB), only one (very worn and noisy) could not be reformatted. Thanks a lot to aplmak :)
