    Amazing - didn't even know that thing existed. So it was based on the Mac Plus MOBO? Was it legally sold or struck down by Apple at some point in time?

    Damn, I miss those more innocent days of Control Panels, Extensions and extremely ingenious developments on my Quadra 605...
  3. Tks - what I still do not understand is: if the drive is really bad, how can it still perform X/?/ejection actions?
  4. Dear All, I've just received my System 6 floppies, but it seems like the drive can't accept them (always spitting them out with the X or ? sign)...what would be my next step here? Open the Mac SE and check the drive itself?
  5. Tks - I just ordered a set of four 800k System 6 floppies from him; hopefully it will arrive home without problems; then I can try to make the CD 300e work as well..!
  6. Thank you all for the useful feedback; I agree I must probably stick with System 6 in this case - but has anyone used the floppy preparation services of Rescue My Classic Mac?
  7. Given the above, I am considering ordering some System floppies - does anyone know if this site is reliable? http://rescuemyclassicmac.com/buyadisk/buyadisk.html
  8. Damn, the morons must have formatted the original System disks...all I get is a spit-out with the X mark...
  9. After digging a little further, I was able to find at least original System 5.0 disks which I am gonna try right now - will keep you posted..! In the meantime, does anyone have any clue whether the AppleCD 300e Plus works with the SE? At least it does have a SCSI connection, which would greatly help in case I wanted to install newer System versions...thanks!
  10. And I simply cannot believe my eyes - it DID turn on after at least 20-25 years without seeing any action..! Question mark screen, but still... I feel like in the 90s with my Quadra 605 again..! Now how to install System 7 on it?
  11. Guys, Here is my first ever vintage conquest (originally talked about in another thread on how to clean a Mac SE) - where I currently work I have found (buried somewhere in the organization's archives) a really nice Mac SE with one floppy + HD, plus original keyboard/mouse and a Apple CD drive (probably used with a 6100/60, no longer there) - I was able to get the whole package for free (the place used to be a Mac-only outfit until 1996)..! Too bad everything else has already been dumped by them...there was a LOT of old stuff lying around until at least 2006... I could definitely use s

  13. Guys, I just wanted to sincerely thank you for the very useful replies - I finally had the time to take the Mac with me tonight; here are a couple of first pics By the way, does anyone whether it is still necessary to do a CRT discharge if the machine hasn't been turned on for more than 15 years?
  14. Folks, just my second post here; so apologies if this is dealt with elsewhere. Where I currently work I have just found (buried somewhere in the organization's archives) a really nice Mac SE, most probably with one floppy + HD, plus original keyboard/mouse and a Apple CD drive - I was able to get the whole package for free (the place used to be a Mac-only outfit until 1996) and will try to turn it on tomorrow, once I am able to take it home. However, people at the time used some sort of velcro to attach a monitor filter to the SE's display, which has led to some stain/discoloration compare
