Re: SE/30s won't fully boot

2006-01-04 Thread Ingles, Raymond

 From: Daan Goedkoop

 Some time ago, my SE/30 did the same - it just hung at bootup. In my 
 case an ADB connection was dirty. After pulling the mouse, 
 keyboard and Wacom Tablet and plugging them in again, everything
 worked fine.

 Well, I got one of 'em working last night; managed to boot it off
install floppies. It ended up dropping it from System 7.5 down to
7.0, but it boots now. The other one gives me the Simasimac pattern;
I'll have to try the dishwasher trick on it.

 Interestingly, the Simasimac pattern doesn't come up if it's using
a IIsi ROM; it doesn't boot, but you don't get the zebra stripes.

 Anyway, anyone got drivers for a Cabletron SE/30 Ethernet card? I
found a link on the web here:

 http://www.macdrivermuseum.net/network.shtml

 ...but it looks like Cabletron's web domain has expired and the
FTP server is down. I'll extract the drive from the non-working
machine eventually, and see if I can pull the drivers off of it,
but it'd be nice to have the image.

 Finally, I've got a video card for a Radius Color Pivot monitor.
It's SE/30-sized; it wouldn't fit in a IIsi case. At least, not
with the lid on. I don't have the actual monitor, but if anyone's
looking for such a card and is willing to pay for shipping I'll
gladly send it along.

 Sincerely,

  Well, I got one of 'em working last night; managed to boot it off
 install floppies. It ended up dropping it from System 7.5 down to
 7.0, but it boots now.

This is what happened when I installed a Lapis ProColor card in my
SE/30.  I couldn't boot with 7.5.5 with the card installed unless I
turned off extensions by holding the shift key during boot.  If you're
booting up to the welcome screen, it could be some incompatibility if
you have extra hardware installed.

My beloved SE/30 died, and even the dishwasher trick didn't revive it.
I aquired two other SE/30s, and I've been trying to put together an
assembly of SIMMs, ROMs, and such that'll successfully boot. So far, no
luck.

Anyone run into a situation where the machine will pass initial boot,
find the internal drive and throw up the Welcome to Macintosh screen,
and then just sit there, with occasional (~ every twenty seconds) sounds
like disk activity?
