I know my last thread in march was about this same subject, but I finally got around to getting all the parts and info I need. However at every turn I make I am running into issues. I originally planned on using an IBM DNES-318350 18gb drive in my quadra 950 since my apple branded drive died from sitting. Now, I have tried everything to get this drive to work with it. I tried the A/UX installer, and every time I get an error 11 with a system bomb. Then I tried using the patched 7.3.5 installer, and it won't see the drive. I then moved to trying to format it with another macintosh. With my performa 6115CD, it will turn on, sit at the grey screen with the mouse, but no happy/sad mac symbol will appear unless the 68-50 pin adapter is removed. I then tried going to my 7300/200, but the 2gb quantum drive is dead, and it refuses to use the drive from the performa. I had hopes with my beige g3, but it is password locked and requires a fresh install from my understanding to remove the password. Am I just having bad luck, or is there something else I could try?
