    What you mentioned were all nice positives of the new 16" MacBook Pro (better graphics, the better keyboard mechanism, and better performance...especially if you get the 8-core model). And lastly...

    Totally understand Rod...if it's your normal practice to sell & upgrade when a new iPhone model was released.

    I think one detail you mentioned that puts a wrinkle in things is that you said you...

    Hey Rod. What's the driving force for a new phone?:

    - iPhone 7 won't do something you want it to do?
    - Having a problem with your iPhone 7...requiring replacement/upgrade?
    - Too much...

    First of all we need to keep things in perspective. This is a 2012 MacBook Pro (7-8 years old)...if it's a 13" model...and if it was working 100%...it may only be worth about $250-$300. ...

    I also vote for the hard or soft reset of the iPad. Just like rebooting a computer...it can clear a bunch of "digital confusion" out of the device.:)

    Problem is what member MBAmtloin mentioned is not fully true. The upgradeability of 2015 MacBook Pro's and brand new current models is not that different.

    Sounds like this is a pre-retina display MacBook Pro. Upgrading both the RAM and internal storage is pretty easy...just need to remove the bottom panel...then you have the access needed to upgrade...

    You're investingating this more closely than I...thus I will yield to what you say about the floppy vs. CD images. What I don't understand is...if the downloads in that link are a CD install...why...

    That sounds great Dave...congrats on making some progress!:)



    Please refer to the link in post #10 of this thread. I included a OS 7.5.3 download link there for the floppy images.

    Sounds great Dave. This is what I was hinting at earlier. Getting ANY version of the OS fully installed on your SE may be better than a minimally installed version of 7.5.5...then upgrade from...

    An additional possible solution...and if time is of the essence...is boot the computer from an external device (such as a bootable external hard...

    Those files in the link should be the files necessary to install the OS (7.5.3 or 7.5.5). Each of the files should be a disk image capable of fitting on an single floppy disk of the appropriate size...

    I may have been misunderstood in my last message. I wasn't defining what a -199 error was...I was saying that the mechanical alignment of the floppy drive read/write head (for either or both floppy...

    The floppy alginment issue (with age) may or may not be a cause of the -199 error...just wanted to mention it in case you hadn't thought of it...or knew it existed.

    Thanks Dave for all the additional details...and thankfully a couple of the details I think could be important.
