Well, its been a long long long time coming, but I finally have it, my CC project is nearing completion.
I started out with a standard CC
I got a 575 mb and did the high-res mod
I finally got my hands on a 1.2gb HD and last night I did the HD swap and initialized the HD and then made the 10mb ProDos Partition.
I then did a performa Restore from the performa 500 series restore CD I got my grubby little hands on.
20 minutes after I took the machine apart, I was running OS 7.5 on a fresh 1.2gb 33mhz 32mb ram CC.
I then installed the apple//e card, hooked up the 5.25" floppy, installed the apple//e software and I was playing Wings of Fury once more!
Tonight I have some old software to install and then I need to learn how to navigate around in Apple//e world so I can run software off the 10mb HD and can detach the 5.25" floppy drive so I can once again store the old floppies in safe storage.
I have to say, this CC runs much snappier than I ever expected it to. Honestly, I think it could be a viable machine to use if it could access the internet all the time. Alas it cant, as the apple//e card uses the same slot as the NIC would.
regardless, I doubt running the web at 640x480 would be any fun anyhow, and the bottleneck of the 33mhz might make surfing frustrating too.
I have a few things left to do on this project, including making the back pannel cover fit nicely again. what its future brings, i just dont know, but i have enjoyed this project more than i thought I would.
One thing that would be awsome to do is to have video in including coax so I could hook up the Atari 2600 up to it, that would be a blast, holy grail would be to have all three, NIC, video in, and the Apple//e card all installed, oh and still being in OS 7.5 so the apple//e card will work
