Hi to everyone
I recently aquired this old powerbook with no operating system. Mac says it will take
7.0.1 to 7.6.1 Where can I get such a system and do you install it from flopies? Have never had a Mac so need lots of help. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Snitz.
Check out Gamba's page (http://home.earthlink.net/~gamba2/index.html) -- lots of good vintage info there. Including Sys 7 install images. The PB 170 was tops when it was introduced, IIRC. If you can find Sys 7.1, it's a great deal nicer. However it's been pulled from many sites as Apple has enforced the 'you-have-to-buy-this-version' mentality (speculation was there was stuff in 7.1 that Apple licensed from others; thus, no free download).
