  1. Here is another link to look at by a person claiming he figured out how to boot OS 9 on a FW800 MDD: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/macos9/omLso5j1dkU

  3. Regarding your 7448 and the CPU Plugins problem. I have found this Japanese retailer that from the rough Google English translation seems to say they have a custom updated/edited CPU Plugin file that fixes the 9.2.2 crash problem with 7447 upgrades: http://www.vintagecomp.com/sell/Sonnet/Encore7447.html Here is a direct link to the file: http://www.vintagecomp.com/sell/Sonnet/updatedCPU.sit I believe it will also work with 7448 upgrades as well. I don't own a 7447 or 7448 upgrade so I have never been able to test out this file to see if does what I think the translation seems t
  4. Strangely, the download from the developer's site seems to be an older version. You can still get the latest versions from http://allmacintosh.digsys.bg/preview/207261.html

  6. There is also a similiar discussion here http://www.cubeowner.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=12512 at the cubeowner forum about how to manually edit the open firmware to allow OS 9 booting with a 7447/7448 upgrade. This may be useful for further refining of the sawtooth open firmware patch.
  7. Thanks, that's exactly the detail I wanted. I notice you have added a new line enabling the lba-48 property. Can this line be considered optional and be omitted from the patch if you are not using a hard drive larger than 128gb. In fact, is this line even being recognized under OS 9 and earlier. This page http://4thcode.blogspot.com/2007/12/using-128-gib-or-larger-ata-hard-drives.html seems to suggest enabling the lba-48 property in open firmware has no effect under OS 9. With regards to your sleep problem, it may not be just a OS 8.6 issue. I am having similiar problems with my 7455 u
  8. Thanks for the firmware patch. I can't wait to try it out on my 7455 upgraded sawtooth. However, I have never done any open firmware editing before and I was wondering if you could post more detailed step by step instructions on how to apply your patch. For example, do you press the return key at the end of every line? In particular, do you press the return key at the end of the second line, then type device-end and press the return key again or can lines 2 and 3 be combined into a single line?
  9. Here are some reasons I can think of for keeping it: 1. Last desktop mac with a plaintalk microphone connector. 2. Last desktop mac to boot Mac OS 8.6. 3. Only 2X AGP mac. There are some older agp video cards that may only work in 2X slots so it is good to have the only 2X AGP mac around. 4. 4 memory slots vs. 3 slots in the DA and QS actually give the Sawtooth a slight memory expansion advantage if you use OSX compared to the DA and QS. 5. Only G4 with a firewire port on the motherboard. 6. The 100mhz system bus may actually be more stable than the later G4s especially
  10. MicroMac sold this a few years later calling it the Power WorkStation. See here: http://www.micromac.com/products/lc_pws.html
  11. There is also an old resedit hack for the Apple CD extension that will allow it to mount third party scsi drives: http://web.archive.org/web/20020606004049/http://www.resexcellence.com/hack_html_99/12-21-98.shtml
  12. I used a Sophisticated Circuits PowerKey with my 6100 which brings back the ability to turn on the 6100 with the keyboard power key. http://www.sophisticated.com/products/powercontrol.html

  14. There are a couple of old locked topics where users of the old Calcomp tablets have asked for the drivers. Well after many attempts to find it I happened to stumble upon them today. Here it is if anyone needs it: http://macdrivermuseum.net/input/gtocalcomp/
  15. You are correct. No bids and not much interest. Could be a good way to pick up a cheap 5500. Sell off the other stuff and you might even make money.
