I'm baaaaaaaack...heh Hello. Its been quite some time since I've been on this forum due to college, and the scsi bus chip refusing to cooperate with anything. I recently picked up another gently used Q950 mobo, and it does work with both of the performa 6115cd 325mb hdd, along with a failing 2gb Fireball out of another performa I have. My intentions are to get this 18gb 68-pin hard drive working in my quadra so I can transfer all the info off of the other old hard drives, and so I can mess around with my quadra once again. When I left off, I made a 1gb HFS partition on it using my beige g3, hoping that maybe I can install OS7 on it using the 'hacked' version of the installer. I lost the use of my macbook since my mom needed it, and I have since moved from my parents place. However, if needed, I can remote into my macbook and work with it if I can get ahold of my mom. I did clone the drive in hopes of getting it to work with my intel based laptop, though that seems like too much of a hassle to do at the moment. I am currently burning the old floppy images using rawwrite on my desktop, so the ability to modify the images are non-existent at the moment. When we left off, my quadra would only see the dnes drive on ID 4, saying that there was a termination error in Mt. Everything, even though the ID was NOT set to ID 4. The equipment I have to work with are as follows: x1 50-pin cable x1 68-pin cable x1 50-pin Passive + Active Terminator x1 68-pin Active Terminator x1 50 / 68 pin adapter x1 50 / 68 / 80 pin adapter I have tried different combinations of cables and terminators in hopes of getting the drive to work. Now the case is that whenever it is connected to the scsi cable, it will not spin up, even though the 'enable auto-spin' is jumpered on the jumper block. That is where I am stuck now. I was wondering if I can get advice as to how to maybe get the drive to spin up when plugged in to the scsi cable, and maybe getting an OS installed on it. Side note: I picked up an Accelerator Power Pump overclock kit for my quadra. It was new in the box, and for only $20, it seems like a cool thing to try if I can get this mess to work.
