    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...

    Definitely give everything suggested by Mac-Forums members a try first. If nothing helps...definitely take it to an Apple Store for an evaluation. As member MacInWin mentioned...many times this...

    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.

    As far as the floppies &...

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

    Hate to say it Marrk...but if Flash Player on your Mac is totally up to date...somehow something got installed that's not "legit". I've heard of this before & I think it's been around for a while. ...

    Another question. If this Mac SE is already running Classic Mac OS 7.5.5 (the maximum OS possible for a Mac SE)...what's missing from this OS 7.5.5 install that requires all of the "summersaults"...

    In addition to what chscag mentioned about SSD cost...WiFi transfer rate may not be fast enough to take advantage of the extra speed of an SSD in a Time Capsule. In fact...I'm not 100% sure WiFi...

    Here's what I would suggest. Head over to eBay...purchase a used Apple Time Capsule (many I saw are under $100...and some are well below $100).

    This would be my concern as well.



    If this computer was always at home (on a desk)...and carefully taken care of...why would there be a broken component somewhere?
