I have a ton of experience reformatting and refreshing old PC's . My experience with vintage macs is ...lacking.
My current performas CD drive does not appear to be working but ive read that it could be a software issue as i have taken it a apart and its clean as a whistle and it DOES read audio cd's track info and song lengths .... it just wont play them.
So to the point. I want to do the Mac equivelent of just wiping and reformatting this sucker to get a fresh from the factory experience. BUT im worried there is a chance the CD drive might not work so i want to go the Floppy route. i have the 7.5 install disks and the network disk as well as the disk tools disk i made from images offline.
Could someone explain to me how i should go about this , and how not to blow this beautiful little computer up ? lol
