Hi

They give old Mac ( LC and Classic ) at my job last week. I get a Classic But the probleme is the disk is lock with Norton, I want to reformat the disk. The guy of the computer support can't find the password and his only suggestion is to find an other disk or try to format the disk on a PC and after format it again in the classic. I know It's look like piracy but I assure you it's not.

Do you have a suggestion

Luc

P.S.Excuse my English

The Classic's had SCSI drives, so you'd have to fine a PC with a SCSI card installed (not many). You best bet is to plug the hard drive into another computer that can handle two SCSI drives at once - boot up off the non-locked disk and then erase the locked disk. This may work.

Getting the hard drive out of your Classic II can be tricky. You need to have a 12" Torx-12 screw driver - and you have to be weary of the little Mac's internal moniter, which can give quite a shock (the hard drive is directly under the floppy which is under the moniter).
