    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.

    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.
