    usually need to use a hard disk utility like hard disk toolkit and seperate the hard disk into multiple >2gb partitions. then install 7.5 on the hard disk. Just be aware 7.1 or 7.0 would be better with the low amount of ram the SE has.

    HFS non-plus technically supports very large partitions, but there are limits by operating system. System 7.5.2 and higher on 680x0 systems has a maximum partition size of 4 GB. A PCI Power Mac is required to support 2 TB partitions prior to Mac OS 8.1. However, 8 GB is the maximum partition size that is bootable on Mac OSes prior to Mac OS X, and on systems prior to the Power Mac G4 Digital Audio.

    Plus you need third party software or patched Apple software to format non apple scsi drives.
