    So I might be getting a Macintosh SE with the high-density floppy drive that can read 1.4 MB floppies, and it comes with everything except a bootable OS floppy disk. I have bootable roms of systems 1 through 7, and I was wondering if it would be possible to put these onto a floppy disk in a way that would let the Mac SE boot from them.

    The computers I have access to to do this are a mid 2010 MBP running os 10.8, an iMac G3 slot-loader running os 10.4 and os 9.2, and a PC running windows 7. None of them have FDD's but my local electronics store still sells USB ones for 10$. I can also get plenty of 1.4 MB floppy disks.

    If it can't be done its not a huge deal as I can order some startup floppies off ebay but they're 20$ each so I would rather make my own.

    Thanks.

    Okay just ignore this post. Its no longer relevant since idiots on the internet think their mac's from 25 years ago are actually worth money.
