SE/30 installation woes

Recommended Posts

Run out of ideas on this one. No matter what I do, my SE/30 gives me 'address error' when I'm trying to install anything. I've tried multiple SD cards in my SCSI2SD, and according to MacCheck, the RAM is fine.

 

It will also do the same thing whilst trying to initialize the HDD, with Finder or Apple SC HD throwing the error instead.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Spec: SE/30, 4MB RAM, SCSI2SD V6.1837613265_2020-06-0615_57_40.thumb.jpg.0665f202b3f74ef0a13fdddee58d4ea0.jpg

I'd likely suspect the SCSI2SD. Someone had a similar issue a few months back, I can't remember who had it but perhaps they will chime in. The SCSI2SD is finicky - you can get random errors depending on the settings. Have you tried copying straight up from the disk and not using the installer? What happens then?

 

EDIT: I found the post. Check it out:

Thanks for chiming in. SCSI2SD is set to the defaults, if anyone has better suggestions then I'll try them immediately.

 

Appreciate the link; the poster said that they tried 6.2.9 which worked fine; I was already on 6.3.1 but dropped it back down to 6.2.9, but that didn't make a difference for me.

I’ve found the compacts right be finicky for some reason. I find that making one single, large SCSI ID drive results in the fewest issues. You can then use whatever formatting software you have to partition it into different disks.
