    So I've often read that an Apple IIgs was capable of booting over an AppleTalk network, but never got around to trying it. Recently I acquired all of the tools to make it happen so I gave it a go today.

    I installed AppleShare 3.0 on a Quadra 650 running Mac OS 8.1. I then followed the instructions in the AppleShare manual about installing the GS/OS files needed on the server.

    Once completed, I set the IIgs to boot via the LocalTalk port and it worked like a champ.

    Here is a quick test video I made.
