Macintosh OS 7.6.1 with SCSI and IDE adapter option
Macintosh OS 7.6.1 with SCSI and IDE adapter option
Saturday, July 23, 2022
My favorite MacOS is 7.6.1
it is between 68k and power mac.
so it works like a bridge between 2 generations. you can easly transfer files between 2 systems.
i prepared a ready image file hard drive 32gb, 64gb, 128gb, 256gb.
but macintosh has refused to accept 512gb option:)
filled it with games apps. perfectly fits for MACs with IDE and SCSI hard drives, please check here:

linux on macintosh: mk-linux
linux on macintosh: mk-linux
Saturday, July 09, 2022

from wiki
"MkLinux (for Microkernel Linux) is an open-source software computer operating system begun by the Open Software Foundation Research Institute[1] and Apple Computer[2] in February 1996, to port Linux to the PowerPC platform, and Macintosh computers"

i am a loyal linux user, i would say advanced)
the most i like macintosh system is macOS 7.6.1 it is between older systems like 7.1-7.5.3 and macOS 8-9. you can transform your files progs apps etc. between them.
so what i need was a linux system which was working with macOS 7.6.1 and i made it:)
check here:
https://www.amigapple.com/m64.html
i am a "redhat" man) and i am still using this mkLinux distro !



Rhapsody os for PC computers :)
Rhapsody os for PC computers :)
Thursday, July 07, 2022

from wiki
"Rhapsody was the code name given to Apple Computer's next-generation operating system during the period of its development between Apple's purchase of NeXT in late 1996 and the announcement of Mac OS X (now called "macOS") in 1998. At first more than an operating system, Rhapsody represented a new strategy for Apple, who intended the operating system to run on x86-based PCs as well as on PowerPC-based Macintosh hardware"

so, we have operating system between openSTEP and MacOSX  era.
i made it for pc users with configured IDE to SD adapter. easy to use.
please check it:

i like the rhapsody os very much. it is so advanced and easy to use :)
silence with SD card.


MacOS Copland : Apple's Copland Project !
MacOS Copland : Apple's Copland Project !
Friday, July 01, 2022
from wiki:
"Copland is an operating system developed by Apple for Macintosh computers between 1994 and 1996 but never commercially released. It was intended to be released as System 8, and later, Mac OS 8. Planned as a modern successor to the aging System 7, Copland introduced protected memory, preemptive multitasking, and several new underlying operating system features, while retaining compatibility with existing Mac applications. Copland's tentatively planned successor, codenamed Gershwin, was intended to add more advanced features such as application-level multithreading"

so, copland was never released :)
it was not easy to install to a mac. gave lots of error during installation.
tried some other methods like, parallel connecting 2 different macintosh and install them simultaneously . at the end, I was amble to install .
please check here:
https://www.amigapple.com/m70.html
boot fast, works smoothly.
it has 2 OS:
macos 7.5.5 and  macos COPLAND !

interesting experience, worth to try :)

Unix on Macintosh : A/UX !
Unix on Macintosh : A/UX !
Wednesday, June 29, 2022

from wiki:
"A/UX is Apple Computer's Unix-based operating system for Macintosh computers, integrated with System 7's graphical interface and application compatibility. Launched in 1988 and discontinued in 1995 with version 3.1.1, it is Apple's first official Unix-based operating system.[2] A/UX requires select models of 68k-based Macintosh with an FPU and a paged memory management unit (PMMU), including the Macintosh II, SE/30, Quadra, and Centris series."

for unix solutions on early macintoshes, the best option is A/UX operationg system on Macintosh!
smooth using, full command on xterm and you can use it with Macintosh system 7 !

only the minus is, this OS is for limited Macs ( macintosh se, macintosh II and for some quadras)

please check this:
https://www.amigapple.com/m56.html
this is raw A/UX OS for macintosh se and macintosh II. tested . works perfectly.
it was hard to install to macintosh, some how it gave a lot of errors during installation, tried some other  floppy image files, at the end, I was able to create a hard drive.

please also check this one:
https://www.amigapple.com/m58.html
this one is a little bit tricky.
I tried to create n A/UX hard drive for "other macintoshes" like macintosh classic or classic II.
for this I used a " software fpu" and  tried to hack mac for recognizing it as macintosh II or macintosh se!
it works %50-%50 :)

in any case, I added this sell an another memory card for rescue the image file. if it does not work,
this card is reserve-rescue card.
while working on your A/UX system, possibly you will crash several times your hard drive memory card:)
on the other hand , you will  have a fully functioned Macintosh system 7.1 for your computer.

so,
I think, it is worth to try !

our web is not provided by server company or web provider, the server is  based on our office and yes; we use raspberry pi for this :)

so, the connection speed ( and connection itself) depend on our connections in office. we have 300mbs speed, it is plenty, but sometimes connection may not work correctly because of "internet provider" itself.

so, if you can not reach sometimes( it is very rare, but could happen) please don't be worried.  in couple of minutes( sometime maybe 30min-1hour) the connection will be reestablished.
sorry for this :)

while using your retro computer emulator, like pistorm, amibian, pcmiga or even commodore 64 or Atari st, dot forget to turn of your computer( rpi) correctly. if not, you could damage your image file in memory card.

for correctly turn of your rpi( when you are on emulator) just check F keys, mostly f12 or f10 will work for dropping to menu. there you can find "exit" or "shutdown" button.
if f12 or f10 does not work, please check other f keys even esc key.

if you have a question about this, please ask us:  main@amigapple.com

we have a lot of items.

the key point is to find what you are looking for.

so we tried to make "search' option  more smarter.

first option is a regular search. just write the key word and "click" search button:
if you click button, the answers will be shown on next tab; if you press "enter key" the new mini pop-up page will be open and answers will be there.

if you use regular search, it will look for your keywords, so there could be a lot of answers for your search. could be hard to check all answers.

if you use smart search: "search with special keywords" it will be easier.

we put in all items page a special keyword for our search engine. we took the special keywords from our favorite movies/books like dune, the foundation, star wars etc.
to find out which special keywords linked which items, you need to check them on search page, please click "search page with special keywords"

for example, if you are looking for " amiga whdload items" , you just need to use keyword " obiwan" or, if you are looking for " macintosh hard drive solutions" you just need to use "gimli" keyword, that is it)

we hope you will like this method!
