Helping my boss with a hardcore nerd project. Trying to get his first computer, a Macintosh SE, up and running. It still powers up but the hard drive is dead. I looked at one guide but was unable to find the necessary adapters.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

YIKES...that's a tough one!

Definitely a "nerd" or "just see if it can be done" project...since from the financial & practicality standpoints there's not much "traction".

Heck...just getting a "normal" IDE or SATA HD to work in an SE would be a pretty difficult project.

Good luck,

Save the trouble. Buy an external scsi drive. And load the OS on that through floppys. Apple offers fress 6-7.5 free on their webiste.
