Hi there, all. This is my first time here, so my apologies if I've posted in the wrong forum...

I just bought a working Lisa 2. It's in great condition, complete with keyboard, mouse, and even little laminated cheat-sheets tucked inside the keyboard showing how to shift-select and how to use a scroll bar. What a riot!

My only problem is that I don't have a boot disk or any software for it. I have only the hardware. It has a 3.5" floppy disk drive...

Does anyone know of any way I can get my hands on a boot disk? I'd love to get this thing up and running again. It looks like it's working perfectly, except that it just needs a disk to boot from.

Thanks!

Thanks! Yes, I have checked eBay, but currently the only disks for sale are bundled with a Lisa itself. But I'll definitely keep my eyes open! I just bought the Lisa a couple hours ago, so I've only just begun my search. :)

Hey I got some software for the lisa series computer. Would you be interested. Its the base OS but it should still work its in a Pasical prgramming disk for the Lisa type computers. If I remeber correctly its new. Our site has our e-mail you cvan contact us for a pic and more info. It's nice to see that some one found a working lisa there rare :) .
