I have taken my only Mac (a Color Classic) and installed 7.5.3 in it,
over a OS 6. something install.
After the 7.5.3 install was installed, I rebooted and played around
with it for a while. This Color Classic has a Color Classic II logic
board in it. As far as I could tell, everything works perfect.
I bought a CF AztecMonster CF-3.5inc. SCSI Converter Card and a 4GB CF
card for it.
This is what I bought:
Here is the manual for the card:
The removal of the old SCSI card and the install of this new card went
well. I can install disk #1 of 7.5.3 in the CC, boot to it, and it will boot to
the disk, but the software will not see the CF/SCSI drive.
Reading the manual in more detail it says that usually, I need to
format the new CF card by using FWB HDT or Silverlining, or Drive 7 or
other software used to init 3rd party SCSI hard drives. The
directions say that Drive Setup will not work on this unit.
I thought I could find this software on the web, and maybe it was
available back in 1998, but what ever links I could find that
looked useful are now dead.
So last night I wrote the author and he quickly file attached a
program called "webutils_pl.hqx".
After a lot of googling, I was told I would use Stuffit expander and or
7-Zip to un compress this file under Windows 7 (the CC is the last mac I
own and it is not working at the moment).
7-Zip turned my file into something called Anubis_Utility_V3.sit.hqx
I moved that file to a floppy and then to my CC, but it would not boot
to that floppy.
Maybe a 3rd party SCSI formatting tool is still available on the web
someplace? If I knew where it was, I could down load it, and hope the
file is not compressed, and then move it to a floppy and try to
init/format my CF card, then load an OS.
Maybe you own a software tool that would work? If you do not mind
sharing, maybe you can file attach it to email and send it to me?
I also use the free gmail cloud (15 GBs free) and Dropbox.
Any help appreciated.
I suspect others here have done the CF AztecMonster CF-3.5inc. SCSI
Converter Card mod.
I was up from about 6:30PM last nigh to 1AM looking for and trying
software tools on my Windows 7 box looking to find a solution.
I am going to look into making a Mac emulation (what ever that is) in
my windows 7 box now.
Can any of you give me any pointers?
