Hey guys. I got this in a conquest today. It is a very nice machine. It has 2 batteries, an external charger, the original restore CD and disk tools floppy disk, the VGA adapter, and the phone cable (has a flag wrapped on it that mentions the 3400). However, it does not seem to want to boot anything. It had Mac OS 9.1 on the 6gb HD it had in it, but would crash at launch, mentioning an unimplemented trap. I managed to get it to boot once, pressing shift, and I found out it's a 200mhz model with 48mb of RAM.
However, after that one boot, I got nothing. I popped in the restore CD, my Mac OS 9 CD, and my 8.6, and pressed C. All won't boot. the LED will light up for a second, and go out, and it will boot from the HD.
After that, the hard drive started thrashing, and it died. So I put in a 4gb that came with it. It works, and there is nothing on it. Again, I got nothing booting from CD. I tried resetting PRAM by hitting the button, nothing. I then swapped in the floppy module. I put in the disk tools floppy. Oddly, the Mac OS splash is in black and white. It gets as far as showing a wallpaper, and the menubar with nothing in it before giving up.
anyone have any idea on how to get it running? it is a nice machine I hate to see go to waste.
