I have changed my focus from restoring my 3 Apple //c, now that is accomplished, and picked up a nice recapped Mac SE/30 with 40MB internal hard drive and now 68MB RAM with BMOW's ROMinator II ROM so that I can use my BMOW Floppy EMU as a Floppy Drive HD20-style storage device currently at 100MB.
The internal drive has System 6.08 installed with both Maxima and Optima installed. I have it set primarily for 24-bit with Maxima affording me access to 14MB RAM and a non-volital RAM drive for experimentation. This allows me to use the non-32 bit clean MultiFinder, which is the point of having so much extra RAM installed: running multiple programs at once.
I installed System 7.5.3 successfully on the Floppy EMU and System Picker to go back and forth.
Now I need to install Open Transport 1.3 (from the gold master, which ignores that the system is not 8.1) and AppleShare Client 3.7.4 so that I can "talk" over Appletalk to my MacMini2,1 which runs OS X Tiger Server as a "puddle jumping" to my MacMini running High Sierra.
I acquired a Farallon iPrint to bridge Appletalk from PhoneNet connected to my SE/30 to Ethernet on my MacMini2,1.
Currently I use "SneakerNet" to get files to the SE/30.
I installed a 1.4MB USB Floppy drive on the OS X Tiger MacMini; or I move the 2GB micro-SD card from the Floppy EMU and run SheepShaver on my High Sierra MacMini with the card mounted through a SD USB reader and mounted in SheepShaver in OS 9 to allow copying of files.
Now I am having trouble installing OT 1.3.
Although it comes as one large bundle of files and folders named Install 1, Install 2, Install 3 and Install 4: when I run it from the file, it asks for the Install 1 floppy.
I then copied each of these folders files to 4 1.4MB floppies, but when it asked now for Install 1, it acknowledges its presence but asked for the 'original" Install 1 to be inserted.
I do not know how to "read" Install documents to figure out how to manually install the OT 1.3 files either.
