I just bought a Macintosh SE at a yard sale for $5. It won’t boot up. But the internet is a marvelous thing, and according to this page, I need a boot disk. And there’s a way to make one, too. But:
I’ve tried to do this as described in the page linked after that text (just in case I have the Superdrive), but it’s not working out because the extracting program is having some issues. In any event, I probably have the 800k drive, because it says so on the back of the computer. Naturally, I don’t have another Mac; only a PC. Here’s the boot disk image file.
Is there any way I can make myself the appropriate boot disk? I don’t know anyone who’s got a Mac… I’ve been looking around Mac User groups all afternoon, but I haven’t found anything yet.
Any hope for my new box of wonder?
