  1. Something about the numpad screams "photoshop" to me... my eyes want to believe, but my brain says "something's wonky"...
  2. Thanks, everybody! Right now it's sitting in my living room because I'm having my basement renovated later this spring. Once it's done, that's where the collection will go and finally properly be displayed @Byrd - My experience with Linux of any kind could probably fit into one of the letters of this sentence, so I'm kind of leaning toward AIX for the OS. I've already downloaded 4.1.4 (I think) with the final patcher that was released later. Just need to find out how to burn it to a CD (disc format, etc) so I can install it. @EvilCapitalist - I bought it from a guy in Pittsbu
  3. Well, it's been a minute, but I wanted to share my latest. SUPER happy about this one, as it's been a "holy grail" item of mine for well over 20 years. Apple Network Server 700 200mhz CPU card upgrade (original 150mhz card included) 80mb RAM 4gb SCSI HDD 24x CD-ROM The condition is excellent -- no leaking caps, amazingly clean. The only thing in need of repair is the LCD on the front, as you can see in the photos. It'll be an easy fix. I plan to install AIX, but the previous owner also included a copy of Yellow Dog Linux that he'd been planning to in
  4. I'm sorry, this is the "hacks & development" forum. People interpret that as "you're free to talk about hacks & development here." Maybe you should rename the forum the "non-specific hacks & development forum." Aside from that, "building a hackintosh" is not the same as loading an OS onto an "unsupported" computer. We're talking about using an existing Mac to run software that it technically can run, but isn't officially supported.
  5. I'll see if I can find it when I get home... I have a pile of those suckers and I'm pretty sure I haven't written over it... And that 210 card should work just fine.
  6. Charles - my Mac Pro 1,1 is running Mavericks perfectly. You have to install it with a bootloader-type setup (I used SFOTT) but it works great and it's not difficult to do at all. SFOTT creates the install disc (or thumbdrive) for you once you set it up for your machine. Has detailed instructions too. The only downside is that you'll need to upgrade your video card for Mavericks. There are no drivers for the 7300 in 10.9, so your card will behave VERY poorly. Any GeForce card made after 2011 should work out of the box with Lion or later. I got a nice GTX 570 1.25gb card off a guy on craig
  7. He had a picture of it, and it looked a little dirty, but I didn't see any massive scratches, cracks or dings. He said it works. I'm assuming it hasn't been recapped, and that it it will probably need that done.
  8. Finding vintage Macs for sale in the central Ohio area is like finding a diamond in the Sahara these days -- so you can imagine my reaction when a guy placed a local ad for an SE/30 - for $50. Hopefully going to pick it up some evening this week or this weekend...
  9. My daily driver is still a 2006 Mac Pro 1,1. They're built extremely well. I've swapped out the stock CPUs with 3ghz quad-core X5365s and it's running a GeForce GTX 570 card. 120gb SSD boot drive and a 1tb storage drive, with a 2tb RAID to host backups for all Macs on my network. I used to cart it around to LAN events all over the state, until I got tired of carrying it and built a mini-ITX PC. Now it runs OS X only. Mavericks right now, but I hear it will still run 10.11, so maybe I'll go to that when 10.9 goes the way of Lion... It's the most solid, dependable Mac I've ever owned, b
  10. Yes it's the Apple branded card. They had two "AV" cards - the AV card and the HPV card. This is the one with the DB-15, S-video-in and S-video-out ports. And yes, you have to slide the motherboard carrier all the way out to get the battery out. Lots of screws to remove, but it's nowhere near as big a pain as the 8100 cases. Does the AV card work under OS 9? The machine is running 9.1 right now...
  11. Well apparently the AV card isn't working. It's plugged into the PDS slot, but no monitor will show a picture when attached. I've tried an LCD with a DB-15 to VGA adapter, and an Apple 12" RGB display. My Apple 13" RGB display works fine on the motherboard port, but not on the AV card.
  12. Well the RAM works fine -- however I can't get a monitor to work on the AV card. Onboard video works, but it's like the machine doesn't see the AV card at all. I thought it might work for a 2nd display, but no such luck. There is a connector on the AV card, but there's nothing plugged into it. Am I missing something? It's been probably 17 years since I last had this machine on and I'm drawing a blank. Is there a control panel or extension for the AV card?
  13. Thanks guys, I'll give it a shot. There are already a pair of 32mb FPM SIMMs in there, but I've got 2 more pairs of 16bm EDO that I'm going to test. Trash80 - your post was the first one I checked when I was having my front faceplate problem. I had forgotten just how well-built this machine is. Tons of room to work in, too. I have a big box full of Sonnet G3 & G4 upgrade cards. I know at least 1 or 2 are for the old 601 machines. Think I'll drag that out, too.
  14. Here's another question - can you combine FPM and EDO in the first-gen Power Macs? Or any Macs, for that matter? I have some 72-pin EDO simms sitting around and am contemplating putting some of the larger ones into the Radius. I know FPM and EDO are closely related, and I've used both in other Macs, but never together.
