    Hi Henry,

    Thanks for checking. What you see there is exactly what I get once open the part 1 file. I suspect that the only way I'll get a floppy version is by getting it off eBay. In the...

    Hi,

    Just an update - I've manged to use the floppies to install v7.0.1 on the SE.

    Getting back to 7.5.3: can anyone point me in the direction of where to download the floppy images? I'm working...

    Hi,

    I might be on to something. I've found the floppy disk images for v7.0.1 on the Internet Archive and creating the on my G5 (via the dd procedure). If I can get 7.0.1 on the SE, then I can copy...

    Hi Nick,

    Hi Nick,

    I know what you're saying - floppies can degrade or fall out of alignment. I'm wondering if that is the case here as I'd have thought the CRC checking would have picked up disk reading...

  10. Installing 7.5.x on a Mac SE

    Hi,

    I'm hoping this is the right forum, but apologies if not.

    I have a Mac SE with a Superdrive (and relevant chipset) that can successfully read and write 1.4Mb floppies. It also has a SCSI2SD...

    Whilst my in initial reaction was to think that this was very unlikely to be the case as the connector has been unplugged and reconnected multiple times, I thought I'd try it again, if only to be...

    Hi,
