I recently purchased a Color Classic & upgraded the motherboard to a LC575. I also upgraded to HD to a 2 Gig.
Everything starts up just fine, however I need to install the system software - here's where I've run into problems:
The Mac smiley face appears and then is followed by the "question mark". I've tried restarting with the Mac 7.1 OS start-up disk, but I receive a message that the 7.1 OS is not compatible with my computer (I've tried restarting with the original motherboard and HD, but I get the same message).
I have a full version of the Mac OS system 7.5 on CD (non-powerpc version), but I'm not sure how to get my Color Mac to recognize the external CD Rom.
Any suggestions out there??
