However, I soon realized I was using a System 1.1 Boot disk, which is not compatible with the SE. I don't have an ADB mouse/keyboard, only a 128k/512k/Plus keyboard and mouse.

I have a Mac SE FDHD where the second floppy drive is behaving bad. The eject mechanism works fine, but when I insert a working diskette, it makes the normal disk read sounds a very few times (and in the meantime the mouse pointer gets kinda stuck, as if the computer is working hard). It then gives the dialog saying "This disk is unreadable. Do you want to initialize it?" every time. I've tried with two Mac formatted HD diskettes - both work in the first drive but gives the above behaviour in the second. What to do?
