    Hi I have a lot of different Mac OS discs and stuff. Do you want it on CDrom or floppy (in case of 6 and 7)? I'm going to my parents tomorrow so I can check what I have laying around

    Apple has released Mac OS 7.5 and before as free downloads.

    Hi,

    Ideally i`m after a bootable 7.5 cd as it`s legal to re-produce due to Apple releasing up to 7.5.5 as abandonware. 7.6.1 was never a retail release.

    Failing that a bootable 7.5 on floppy would be fine

    If you have os 8 cd`s up for grabs let me know the costs.

    Cheers,

    Hello. Don't mean to hijack the thread, but I am also looking for System 7. In particular, I would like OS 7.6 on floppy! Just picked up an LCIII+ and am currently pimping it.

    Hi,
    I found some original Powerbook Duo floppies I think they are 7,5. You do want originals don't you? I'll try them with an emu tonight.

    Hi,

    I have managed to get an Apple Network Access disk built within Debian using DD to dump an image of the apple network access disk. Once booted i fired up a spare Apple G3 b&w machine running OSX 10.2 Jaguar Server and configured netinfo access to allow AppleTalk connections. Once that was working it was just a case of connecting from the classic mac to the G3 and then dumping the 19 smi files across to a freshly initialized internal hard disk, then run the installer, install 7.5.3, then update to 7.5.5. After update done run the net wizard and tell macos7 to use OTT rather than mactcp and configure tcp so that i can get out on the internet.

    I was going to just get a disk built to test the machine is but i figured what the hell i might as well get it on the net and browsing the Amibay website

    Thanks for the offer anyhow and if you need any boot disks please let me know as i`m going to create a whole bunch whilst i can

    Cheers,

    Its probably a bit late but I have System 7 boxed (massive set of floppy disks and documentation) and Mac OS 8.1 boxed for sale. Can provide pics/prices if you message me, but I'll also be posting threads for my sales soon as well.
