  1. tbh, my understanding of the SCSI2SD licensing was exactly the same as @landoGriffin's before you posted this comment. I've seen others make the same assumption. It probably doesn't help that the SCSI2SD homepage is (in my opinion) very opaque about what is and isn't open source. This is the only reference to licensing/GPL on the homepage: This isn't terribly clarifying - it states that older hardware versions were GPL license (while providing no info on current versions). No information about the firmware or utility license. Based on a search for "GPL" on the
  2. I've only tried mine with a DB25 SCSI cable that I think came from a SCSI Zip Drive. Not an expert, but I doubt you'd hurt anything trying a non-SCSI DB25 cable. I do know that the 25-pin connector is not really SCSI compliant as-is, so adding a non-compliant cable into the mix might have a higher chance of not working. You could also just use a DB25 to CN50 adapter on both ends. Two of those would probably cost roughly the same as a DB25 SCSI cable. Unfortunately, SCSI cables on eBay are quite expensive.
  3. Haven't tried it but maybe Burn would do the trick? Re: the files ending up as .pkg files on your Macbook Pro - perhaps Safari is automatically extracting the disk images and showing you the .pkg files contained within? Not sure what files from Macintosh Garden you are using. Also, it should be possible to boot from USB on this iBook using Open Firmware. It isn't the most user friendly process, but I definitely prefer booting from USB to making install CDs.
  4. Try different combinations of RAM, one stick at a time. if possible might be worth booting off of a SCSI disk rather than IDE and seeing if that makes a difference.
  5. I just used the ATXMEGA64A3U. All of the parts that I used I simply found based on the specifications in this BOM. If you want I could try to find the Newark order, but I also ordered some parts from Moueser, others from Digikey. Happy to provide these part lists but they are not annotated and include many parts for other projects - lmk.
  6. I used the BOM available in the Github repository and had no issues (except IIRC either C5 or R5 doesn’t exist on the PCB). For the most part I ordered from Newark so I can’t comment on the accuracy of the Digikey part numbers. IIRC the BOM confusion was just regarding an MCU change that didn’t matter that much? - whichever of the MCUs you end up using you can just compile to target that device.
  7. For the SCSI drive, probably easiest to get an SCA drive as described in this thread. There are alternatives, like RaSCSI, or SCSI2SD, but a real SCSI drive should be less troublesome in terms of setup. I generally agree that IDE drives are trouble compared to the alternatives that now exist. It's possible to purchase an mSATA to IDE adapter that is a drop in replacement for a 2.5" IDE hard drive for $8.75 - you just need to add an mSATA SSD. There are 16GB mSATA SSDs available from $9. While this route is a bit more expensive than buying a used IDE 2.5" drive, you'll end up with s
  8. that’s just a PC SIL3112 card that has been flashed with Mac firmware... the same card can be had for $10.50 on AliExpress, but you’d need to solder on a different memory chip then flash the Mac firmware. I think the IDE speeds on this Mac have a theoretical max of 16MB/s. Not sure what you’d be able to get on the PCI bus.
  9. is termination enabled on the Mac RaSCSI?
  10. I agree that it, if you have not already recapped your Mac, it would be wise to use 25v caps instead of 16v due to the negligible increase in price. However, I believe that your conclusions regarding the risk of using 16v caps are overstated: This is true, but why omit the context, page 19 of the PDF?: I don't know the series resistance of the circuit that these SE/30 capacitors are in, nor do I know whether these SE/30 capacitors are exposed to similar surges as in the test. Without this information, it seems premature to use this particular statistic to suggest that 16v ca
  11. I’ve heard bad things regarding the ASM1083.
  12. Finally put mine together, seems to work very well with my Pi Zero W/SE/30. I used the Gimons baremetal fullspec build 1.50 and set up a 7.5.5 image using Basilisk II. Then I simply copied the 2GB image I made to the SD card file system, renamed it to .hds rather than .dsk, and changed the .ini config file... seems to work perfectly, and I can now easily boot Basilisk II from the image on the SD, add programs to it, then put the SD card back in the RasPi and boot my SE/30- no need to use floppies to get programs over anymore!
  13. Finally got my scuznet board assembled. To my great surprise, it worked on first boot - booted straight into 7.5.5 on an SE/30! Tomorrow, networking...
