(REQUEST) Macintosh System 0.97 / Finder 1.0

Post by ibmpcat5170 »

Nobody has uploaded a proper dump of that OS.
Please help me!
My most wanted Macintosh abandonwares from original media are:
  • System .97 Finder 1.0 + MacWrite/MacPaint 1.0 (Apple Computer • 1984) [Operating System and Applications]
  • MacWrite 2.2/MacPaint 1.3 (Apple Computer • 1984) [Applications]
  • System 4.0 Finder 5.4 with System Tools Disk (Apple Computer • 1987) [Operating System]

Whoever has any of these, please contribute them!

According to this website, the copy on the FTP can only opened in a Mac, not sure if this solves your problem.

Well that makes sense because it IS meant for a Mac after all. You could probably stick it in something like vMac however. It sounds like its an application not an OS and if that's the case you definitely wont be able to open it under any OS other than a Mac.

For whatever it is worth, I'll second the motion to get a fresh dump. The copy out there has a 1990s-something created/modified date shown on the disk's "get info" data, has a sysinfo file that does not belong on the disk, and may have other added/removed things.

Of course, since Mac users USED that disk to run their systems, an untouched disk would be very uncommon.

What does a file creation/modification date have to do with the possibility of it being a bad dump? We discussed this already on the Discord. It does not define anything.

An untouched disk would most likely be impossible to find since the machine this was originally used on did not have a hard drive, which means the floppy would have been used to store data on etc. So I find it very unlikely we will find an untouched floppy unless we can find a member that has a vintage 128k Macintosh that was never used, or a floppy at least that never got used in any machine.

But we can always hope such floppy pops up one day!
