While many Operating Systems are still available from Apple, you may not have an easy or convenient way to get them to or on your Mac.
Contact me or leave a note on the checkout page and let me know what Macintosh the drive will be installed in and what System or OS you would like on it. Please note that I am not selling you the software, you are buying my time to provide this service to you.
Considerations include enablers for System 7x, formatting – whether it needs HD-SC, Drive Setup, or even third party formatting apps like FWB or Silver Lining. Also there are choices like minimal system or install everything available.
$35.00 includes reformatting (initializing), testing yet again and installing a new System.
$50.00 will get you the above Plus some other goodies such as utilities or communications software (currently available elsewhere on the internet for download).
