My Dirtiest Macintosh - Macintosh IIvx (But Does it Work?) - Krazy Ken's Tech Misadventures

Sains & Teknologi

The Macintosh IIvx was Apple's last Macintosh II model, and it was the first Mac with a built-in CD-ROM drive. Krazy Ken recently acquired one, but when he opens it up, things go from bad to worse…

    Maybe it will start booting up whenever you want it to if you clean it. Heres this for a start... For the corrosion, you can clean that up very easily using a toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol. Just put a little isopropyl alcohol on the toothbrush and start scrubbing where the corrosion is!

    This video had me ripping my dick off and screaming at the screen. Every one of your 'problems' came down to STOP DOING THINGS AND WAIT. You popped the CD drive and crashed it right after it finally started loading extensions and was almost fully booted to the disc. You must have some major unaddressed ADD or something.

    This actually looks and sounds like a Macintosh Centris rather than the IIvx...Is it because I didn’t own the IIvx? Maybe, but the startup chime pointed to either a Quadra or a Centris.

    CD Rom in this macintosh is good, when you decided to eject the CD using paper clip, it was in the middle of loading and going further, it take 10 restart and 3 on purpose crashes, to start loading.

    I've seen and owned so much worse that works. I have a quadra that sat outside/in moisture so long all the unpainted metal surfaces are BROWN with rust. Works fine, even the original hard drive. In my experience for some reason, it's like the worse shape i find them in, the more functional they are

  • GravianS

    Oh, by the way, the IIvx CAN actually run 8.1, with a bit of software sorcery: So, the old Macintoshes, basically, anything 68k and PPC, ran a lot of the actual system software from ROM, and the OS would just patch it if needed. Originally this was done to run an OS that, frankly, wouldn't have been able to fit into the RAM most consumers had at the time. Memory was *expensive* back then. Unlike most PCs, where the BIOS mostly just acts as a layer between your OS and the hardware, doing just enough to tell the software how to get itself hooked up with the hardware, the "toolbox" contained a lot of the actual resources the OS used to function. The Macintosh ROM actually shared address lines with the RAM, it was so integral to the system's operation. What's interesting here is that most of the time when you can't run a later revision of the OS, it's because it relies on something in the "toolbox" that doesn't exist on the older Macs. As it turns out, people figured this out back in the day and started making software that patched the ROM at boot, loading whatever the system needed to run into RAM. Here's another tool every retro mac owner should have in their arsenal: Basically, this thing lies to the software about what your Mac's ID is. It can allow for some shenanigans, I almost got 8.6 running on a Quadra 950 with a powermac card using that, and some other tricks... At least before my house burned down aaand I lost my entire Macintosh collection.
