    SE/30 HDD driver/formatting help

    Guess I'll do that in the end, it also seems the cleanest and safer way to do it. Thanks!

    SE/30 HDD driver/formatting help

    I just tried with the patched version, but it sees one partition at a time (the boot partition), and the update button is not available. Moreover, I can’t boot from floppy because the floppy drive is not working well...(it mounts but doesn’t format). Any suggestions?

    SE/30 HDD driver/formatting help

    Hi everyone. I recently put a LaCie 8gb external HD into my SE/30, added the proper jumper for termination and installed various versione of system 7 in more than one partition (it has 5 partitions). A month ago the HDD didn’t mount on the desktop, but using a Zip drive I somehow managed to install the Silverlining driver (it’s what I had at that time) and it worked! It feels fast even faster than it was before. But now I have a problem: with this new driver, in order to boot from another partition, I have to select it first in the Silverlining app and then with System Picker. Aside from this, it changed the hdd icons on the desktop, added a startup text and nothing more. Is there any way to go back to how it was before without formatting the drive? I also tried Blue Disc Manager, but it was way slower. Thanks.
  4. @ZaneKaminski sign me up for the 8mb as well! Maybe I’m asking too soon, but will it be possible to order it with a pre-installed version of system 7?

    SE/30 internal HDD termination

    And here I thought a simple change of position would do it . Do I have to source another jumper then? Where can I find it?

    SE/30 internal HDD termination

    Hello everyone! I have a SE/30 that boots from the internal HDD only if a ZIP drive is connected. I initially thought it may have something to do with bad traces on the motherboard (and still haven't checked since it is not my area of expertise), but then I remembered: the HDD is a Seagate 8GB drive taken from an external Lacie enclosure. Is it possible that I have to terminate it with the switches present on the HDD? I found the manual for the drive but I am unsure on how to proceed. Maybe it has nothing to do with this, but the jumper plug on J2 is set to "term power from drive". Should I set it to "terminator enable", another setting or leave it as it is? Mine is the "N" model. Thanks.

    Network laser printer for old / modern Macs?

    It is a very nice project indeed!

    Network laser printer for old / modern Macs?

    It worked for me in the end - I have a Brother MFC-L2730DW. I didn't think it could print so well. JPG file opened on QuickTime with a SE/30.

    Network laser printer for old / modern Macs?

    I'm following the same procedure but I cannot do one (probably) simple thing: how do I extract the installer files?

    IIgs keyboard not working at all!

    It seems like the best option is take it to someone who can repair traces and solder joints... Thanks a lot!

    IIgs keyboard not working at all!

    Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately I don't have much equipment, I only have a voltmeter (if I can find where I put it) and I really don't know anything about electronics. Is it difficult to find a short? I really hoped the keyboard was in working order, but sometimes things don't go as expected...

    IIgs keyboard not working at all!

    Hi everyone! After some time searching for one, I Irecently bought an Apple IIgs keyboard for my SE/30 (the seller lives just 2 km from here, what a coincidence!). It is quite yellowed but the keys are quite nice and not sticky. I plugged it to a SE/30 with a cord taken from a working AEK II but nothing happens. It appears to be totally dead. Either port doesn't seem to work. Am I missing something? Even the PCB doesn't appear to be too terrible. I really wouldn't want to resell it or buy another one - they are too hard to find and import to Italy.
