Hey Everyone, I am trying to get an install of System 7.1 or System 7.5 on my SE/30, and every time it gets to the final disk, cycles back to the first disk and throws up the following error:
An error occurred while trying to
complete the installation. Installation
was cancelled, leaving your disk
It's an almost stock SE/30. It has a 40MB HDD and 20MB of RAM. I've tried dropping the RAM down to 8MB to no avail. I've reinitialised the disk and run the "Test" from disk tools. If I manually copy over System, it'll happily boot.
I thought it may have been related to the Battery so I have replaced that too. Not sure if you have to reinitialise anything once the battery has been replaced, but I did try "Option Command P R" just in case.
I've traied an "Easy Install" as well as a "Minimum install for this Mac". Doesn't make a difference.
I'm stuck! System 6 seemed to work OK, and I only upgraded to get a later version of UnStuffit working...
I have a ROMulator on order. Should I just wait for that, or is there something deeper going on? (Cue ominous music)
Any advice gratefully accepted!
