SE/30 won't boot...
« on: Nov 11 2004, 08:25 PM »
On my SE/30 I acquired yesterday, when I try to boot it I get a SimasiMac (weird rug pattern attached below) and the Chimes of Death and the system freezes, there is not even a Sad Mac with an error code that may tell me what the problem is.

Here's the image I've attached (it's in the Mac .TGA format, so you'll need IrfanView or XnView to view it on a PC. I don't have any apps that can save images in a web-friendly format (PNG, JPEG, or GIF) on my Performa 575.)

EDIT: Made it into a PNG on my Presario, so here's the PNG image:

I can get it to work, but 9 times out of 10 I get a Sad Mac, the SimasiMac, or just the chimes of death.
