  1. Some stuff in here may be helpful for this project: http://mac128.com/
  2. I’ll just throw my two cents in here. The instructions here are a bit outdated, but they work well. http://mac128.com/
  3. This might be helpful as well: http://68kmac.com/Mac128/Mac_128_Update/Entries/2007/9/1_Formatting_800K_MFS_Disks_With_64K_ROMs.html
  4. This could also be useful with your setup. http://68kmac.com/Mac128/Mac_128_Update/Entries/2007/9/1_Formatting_800K_MFS_Disks_With_64K_ROMs.html
  5. It's amazing. All of this was discussed and discovered on these very forums over a decade ago. But it appears the search function for the archive of posts from that time has been disabled? I guess I've been gone too long. Sad that so much useful information has to be rediscovered. But then, that's half the fun, no?
  6. You don't need an OS X virtual machine, what works better is something like a Mac OS emulator like Basilisk II, or SheepShaver for Windows. There's a few tutorials here, geared toward a Mac, but they will give you the idea: http://www.mac128.com
  7. I thought the issue was that you couldn't write to it? As I recall, Apple had a means for reading the contents from the drive to copy your files off of it from an SE, but not to continue writing to the drive.
  8. No worries ... Have just seen this misnomer perpetrated for far too long. Here's another breakdown that covers the transition. http://68kmac.com/Mac128/Mac_128_Update/Entries/2007/1/2_The_%22Classic%22_Macintosh.html
  9. Need to nip this one in the bud. There is no "Snow White" color. That refers to the name of a design language created by Hartmut Esslinger. The Apple // was beige, but the Apple //c was a color called "fog" which also marked the debut of the Snow White design language. The Mac was only ever Pantone 453 and Platinum. It was never "fog". The Mac switched to the Snow White design language with the SE. Here's some links to other discussions: https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/4024-mac-128k-color/#p90321 https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/4073-apple-ii-color/
  10. This may help ... Formatting 800K MFS Disks With 64K ROMs There are numerous threads discussing this as well, but doing a search doesn't seem to pull them up for some reason.
  11. Very surprising. On a related note I just checked eBay prices on Mac 128ks and they seem to be selling for record low prices. Entire systems with original box and packaging selling for less than $1,000. Working units selling for $200. And now 128ks in the trash. What's going on here? Are people not interested in collecting the 128k anymore?
  12. I knew I had done a mock up like this ... obviously mine essentially reduces the current iMac design down to a 128K Compact Mac size, which I would be just as happy with as the mock-up design being discussed in this thread, and would have far fewer balancing issues. It essentially achieves the same effect.
  13. Well one problem I see immediately is there's no way to machine the channels to run the wiring to the power cable. I also don't like the idea that the FaceTime camera, speakers and mic are located in the slot. And why make the the entire thing generally taller than the original? And the angles are off, the bottom of 128K slants slightly forward, not perpendicular, and certainly not backward slanting. The simplest fix for all of these things is to make the indent a covered compartment to house the downward facing speakers and provide a place to put the power connector. So it would be simila
  14. e-mail Eric Rasmussen on his site. There's nothing on that site he hasn't personally confirmed himself. From your initial list you are not accounting for the 240V Plus. This is it.
