It's no longer cost effective to pay for a vintage SCSI hard drive on e Bay for it to either arrive DOA, or die shortly after installing it.Believe me, I've purchased several vintage drives off e Bay over the years that arrived DOA.

Sometimes the SE boots all the way to the Finder without a problem.I reinsert the card back into the SCSI2SD and fired up the Mac. I figured it was because I didn't "bless" the System folder, so I booted the SE up again with a System 6.0.8 floppy, fully expecting the SCSI2SD to mount on the desktop. I don't know what I did to the card inserting it into the Mac Mini, but it seemed to no longer be recognizable. This time, I booted the machine up with a System 6.0.8 disk and launched Lido 7. I configured it for 2 x 1GB partitions just for fun.I gave the machine a reboot with the floppy and my two new partitions mounted on the desktop.I booted the machine up with the Utilities disk from the 4-disk System 6.0.8 installer and launched the Apple HD SC Setup utility. Apple's utility cannot recognize non-Apple-branded drives. I tried it again with the "patched" version of that utility (the one that's been floating around the Internet for years) and it detected and successfully initialized the 2GB card as a single partition. Instead of going through the laborious process of installing everything via floppies, and dragging my backup over from the external SCSI drive, wouldn't it be easier and faster to pop the 2GB SD card into my SD card reader on my Mac Mini and just drag and drop System 6 along with a few hundred Megs of vintage goodies?I connected the SD card to my Mac Mini via an SD card reader and dragged over a bunch of files, including a complete System 6.0.8 System folder.
Luckily, I have an external drive that I copy of all my apps, files, and disk images to for redundancy.
