Pulled my se out of the closet. Surprisingly it works.But can't getsystem 7 on it. It has 6 right now. But I need 7. I found disktools 1 and 2 for system 7.6.


But upon startup it says 7.5 need more memory to startup. So I found this link somebody mentioned.


Apple has some OSes before 7.6 to download for free. So I downloaded 7.0.1 and expanded disk tools and copied 7.0.1 system folder to usb flash drive. And macdrive on my XP computer to read the floppy from the mac. Works great. The 5 day trial is just what I needed. But when I transfer the system and finder to the floppy it doesn't work. It says system is 39k and finder is zero K. Nothing.


So I can't boot. But SE has no usb. And I lost my external scsi drive. My mom probably threw it away.


I could buy a floppy to usb but I'm trying to save 30 dollars. Nothing I copy works. So do I have to get a usb floppy or can I transfer the stuff to my flash drive and make it work on my floppy i my macintosh se.
