  1. I don't have an external SCSI CD, just some hard drives. Like I said it boots into OS8 sans CD so it is working as of now so I'm calling it a win and getting a CD of 800K images ready to try and make some Mac Plus disks, which is mostly what I got it for. Thanks so much!
  2. OH! Okay a CF HD replacement. That might not be a bad idea! I assume it's a lot faster than the platter drive? @Corey986 I tried the 8.5 images from you, burned it with FireStarter at 1x on my 2012 MBP that I used to make all my iMac discs, and it threw some errors but I kept hitting skip and managed to get a bootable OS on the thing, so thank you! Since there were errors should I do an install on top of the install to clean it up? Or just let it ride until it seems like there is an issue.
  3. The GS has a few different keyboards floating around too... different switches underneath the caps, so those caps may not even be interchangeable with each other!
  4. Is this what I’m looking for? https://www.amazon.com/Transcend-PCMCIA-Ata-Adapter-Card/dp/B0009M069Y/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_147_t_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=G406Q4SVD0663NPS96G9
  5. I’m up to replacing the drive, it doesn’t seem hard. What’s a good drive brand/size to be looking at?
  6. Ughhh. I made a bootable 1400 CD formatted the 1400's drive to do the clean install, and now it won't load OS8, it keeps failing on the install and asking if I have the original disks. I feel like this is a known problem, is this the answer? http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/mac-os-install-cd-library (DL #8) I made it and it says "Problems were encountered reading the source file "Installation Tome." Installation Cannot Continue" Bad burn or bad image? Now for some reason it is giving me Sad Mac ... bad HD? 0000000F 00007FFF
  7. Ahh okay. Yeah I can burn one prolly I was gonna try and set up a rudimentary FTP on the Pro and FTP into it from the 1400, not try to make them talk directly over the LAN. I have a hard time sometimes getting HS to talk to Sierra, let alone OS 8! Thanks!
  8. Kinda what it says. I'm working on getting disk images to the 1400 to make 800k floppies for the Mac Plus, and I hit upon the idea of using a CD-RW in order to move stuff from the Mac Pro to the PB to the Plus. (Bridge Macs FTW.). I know the drive in the PB works, it loads up, say, the Warcraft CD-R I burned just fine. I used Verbatim CD-RW, the only ones I could actually find in small quantity. My CD-R spindle is Memorex (I've been using them to make games for the iMac and now the G3 all along.). CD-RW reads fine in the Mac Pro. Limitation of the PB? Weirdness wi
