I recently found a Macintosh PowerBook 1400c that's giving the Sad Mac. (0000000F 00000069 (seems to be a problem with software thank goodness!)). I do have a Mac OS 8 Retail Install CD that I should be able to boot from to initialize/format the HDD, the only thing is that the previous owner replaced the optical drive expansion bay module with the floppy one, so I'm going to have to find an optical one somewhere. I had read on here:
that the TEAC 24x CD-224e would work, although it wasn't certain which revision would fit without any modification. Since I'm not exactly adept with hardware modifications (at all!), I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to tell me if they know of which of these drives would be able to be installed with no (or very little) hardware modifications (either from just by looking at the shape or from some other means):
Thanks a lot for the help!
