Never tough I could get one ... but here is my SE/20
A european version assembled in Ireland
The hardrive is probably dead
I did struggle to unplugg the damm Molex connector :-(
The floppy is probably also the orginal 800k version (need to cross check but I have little hope it has been updated to superdrive version)
On the bright front the main board looks super clean ... no obvious leaking (maybe the only advantage over the SE/30?)
I believe the RAM is max out right?
The battery is suprisingly still delivering 3V! I ordered anyway a battery support to make it more "maintainable"
The power supply seems the original one (any potential replacement?)
The boot process seems fine at this point
Now comes the challenge to replace the hardrive and boot something.
I believe I should target 6.0.8. I do not have another old mac to make the bridge and not planning to collect one just for making floppies.
My first option is to go to RaSCSI (both board and rasp zero are on their way!). Very excited by this device and the possibilities for all my old gears :-D
Any other fun alternative I could boot and prepare from a pc or Imac G3 or Mini M1?
- a scsi cdrom?
- a scsi zip?
- squeeze there an FDHD floppy drive (will it work out of the box?)?
Last but not least ... need to find a keyboard and a mouse .... and a mid interface ;-)
This is where I stand ... any suggestion?
