I just built my Mystic. I copied the enabler down and it booted fine into 7.1. But it was time to upgrade the tiny drive and I'm an all or nothing type so I replaced it with one that was already formatted for HFS.
Apparently I don't have any 7.1 floppies so I put my 7.0.1 floppy in and it told me I could not use the installer.
So I figured 7.0.1 doesn't work on a 575 board but 8.0 should. So I pop in my 8.0 external CD and it comes up and says "Welcome to Macintosh" and then "a system bus error has occured ... try disabling extensions." I disabled extensions and rebooted but got another system bus error.
Next I found my 7.1 startup/emergency disk and popped it in and was able to boot up. Man that sucker boots fast wiithout an OS. I could see the hard drive so I know that works. I copied the floppy to the hard drive and now it boots in about three seconds. The problem is I can't do anything since there's no OS. All I have is a three utilities.
Anyway, I thought someone may have encountered this problem. In the meantime, I'm trying to locate 7.1 which is apparently still commercial software although it is no longer sold. I don't have an external drive setup so I can't copy the old system folder. So I'm pretty much stuck. Ideas?
