Hi!

Liked your myoldmac site much=)

A couple of days ago I found an old Macintosh SE in a container. It seems to work but there seems to be some problems with the operating system, i¥m thinking about reinstalling it but to my question, where do i get a hold of the required os system 7.0 files?

Appreciate if you could help me out. Another question, is it possible to get this "old machine out on the Internet, if so how do i do, i mean there is no network card, I haven¥t opened the machine up but I dont think there are the PCI-slot standard in this machine!?

Best regards
Simon W

Hello,

a Mac in the container... Your lucky! Very Happy

Here you get a System 7.0, you need also the application called DiskCopy to use the DiskImages, and you need a Mac to convert them using DiskCopy and extract the sea.bin. format by using Aladdin Expander.

http://myoldmac.net/share/disk/Disk_Copy_4.2.sea.bin
(40 KB Version, for old Macs)

Mirror: http://download.info.apple.com/.../D-Disk_Copy_6.3.3.smi.bin Version 6.3.3
(774 KB Version, for newer Macs)

Here you get Aladdin Expander v5.1.2 to expand .sit files

Or get Aladdin Expander 4.0 here.

Here you get System 7.0, (go to a higher folder tree to find other languages):

http://download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/...

another source at apple.com is:

http://www.info.apple.com/support/oldersoftwarelist.html#system

On that page look out for :

Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_7.0.x/System_7.0.1.smi.bin
Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_7.0.x/System_7.0.smi.bin

If you have a MacSE with 1 or 2 MB of RAM, you should use:

Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_6.0.x/SSW_6.0.8-1.4MB_Disk1of2.sea.bin
Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_6.0.x/SSW_6.0.8-1.4MB_Disk2of2.sea.bin

Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_6.0.x/SSW_6.0.8-800k_Disk1of4.sea.bin
Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_6.0.x/SSW_6.0.8-800k_Disk2of4.sea.bin
Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_6.0.x/SSW_6.0.8-800k_Disk3of4.sea.bin
Macintosh/System/Older_System/System_6.0.x/SSW_6.0.8-800k_Disk4of4.sea.bin

Use the 1,4 MB or 800k images - it depends on which disk drive is
inside your Macintosh SE, try this on:

    A) Maybe it is noted on the back site of your Mac SE which disk drive is installed.
    If it is not noted - or maybe the Mac is updated, try this one:

    B) Start the Macintosh if still possible with the defect system,
    place an EMPTY 1,4 MB Mac formated Disk in the internal Diskdrive and look what happend.
    If it is openend without a diskussion, you have a working SuperDrive inside your Mac, what means everything goes (400k, 800k, 1,4 MB, DOS,PC - even XP formated disks! Roll eyes).


When it says something like,

"CAN NOT READ THE DISK - you like to Format one or two sided ?"

you have a 800 k drive. You have to cover the left hole of your 1,4 MB disk with some plastic tape to let the Mac accept it as a 800k disk.

Here you find some Applications for your Mac SE:

Here you get Aladdin Expander for Mac & PC to expand .sit files

Another very good adress for software is http://www.pure-mac.com/

There you will find beside system 7.0 FreePPP, the best tool to connect an old Mac to the internet. (On 68k Macs faster than Apple's Open Transport). I recommend Netscape 2.0, or if you have minimum 4 MB Ram Netscape 3.0 as a browser.
