HELP BOARD ! Installing & Troubleshooting the Classic Mac OS / Re: PowerPC G3/300
« Last post by robbo007 on August 10, 2019, 04:57:56 PM »
Thanks. Seems the disk is dead. I've installed the software and the drive is detected but says no disk in drive. I'll try and locate another Zip disk to test further.

Is it worth put-on on MacOS 7.5? O should I use 9.2.1 ?

Did these models have option to use a Magneto Optical Disk? MO230?
Sorry for the necro post here, But need to add some info regarding the original issue the OP had before switching over to using MacOS X server.

I got BootMania to accept the license file! Had same issue you had. The solution is to rename the outputted file to BootMania.bzl. The license file maker by default adds some extra stuff to the end of the file and for what ever reason this is why it wouldn't stick when I tried that.

When I had this issue I tried googling this, but didn't get much aside from this thread which didn't actually resolve the original issue. Well after taking a closer look the website I noticed the command for renaming the file. (I didn't use Terminal to do that however. I just renamed it in Finder which seems to work too. :P ).

The website should have been a bit more clear on that. Renaming the license file to BootMania.bzl is actually a required step. ;)

Also as for Mac OS X 10.4 server...The serial that site provides works on install (with the mentioned clock roll back). However Server Admin will later disconnect with invalid serial message and I can't actually use it. Kinda useless. Does unlimited liscense key not exist for this version?

I have a 10.6ish Server running on my PC via VMWare Workstation 10 (with Unlocker patch. ;) ) and do not have that issue with that one.

I've tried running BootMania on a 10.5 Hackintosh image and it fails to work. I think BootMania just won't work on anything newer then Tiger.

I can't find the old Hackintosh versions of Tiger. The torrents for it have long since died. :(

Unfortunate. I'd like to net boot my iMac G3. But for now I have to boot up my eMac and connect it to the network and run BootMania on it to do that. That I can do just fine. iMac will happlly net boot off that. :P

Also I've not gotten BootMania to actually create any new netboot/netinstall images. Always just spits out a failed to make image error at the end. It won't even recognize any of the MacOS 9 images I've tried with it either. (even the netboot9 image provided by Apple). So I guess that feature was unfinished/bugged?

Well installing the netboot9 image from the package installer from Apple made a MacOS9 Image show up and I now have something to boot my iMac off of incase the optical drive decides to die. It has a hard time reading some of the CD-Rs I have. Don't think the drive is failing though. IT reads normal CDs just fine and there are a few CD-Rs I ahve that it does read fine no longer how long the iMac has been powered up. I guess due to the drive being pretty old, CD-R support just wasn't as good as modern drives.

Funnily enough, the optical drive in my eMac G4 (it's a 1.42Ghz model) actually did die. Didn't notice this until today. I owned the thing for about 6 months. Bought it off Facebook marketplace from someone for about $30 (same story with the imac G3. That one is a 333mhz Tray loading model).

The drive no longer reads any CDs at all. I think it still reads DVDs though. I had a spare DVD rom drive I put in it. Lacks ability to burn disks but at least it's something I can use for a boot device if I have any issues booting MacOS off the hard-drive. :D

Anyways I thought's I'd post about that license file fix so that anyone else that might end up with this problem knows the solution. :D

I was an original purchaser of the first version, that was released by a company called Passport.
There were a number of updates, and eventually a major upgrade to NoteWriter II.

The manuals were released in 3 ring binders, and  I still have the original printed materials.

This program was unique in that the music page was created as an engraver working on a plate would, with the exception that you didn't have to work in mirror image. You put everything on the page exactly where you wanted it, and it stayed there. NO automatic justification.

A major drawback was that it used ONLY the UGLY Adobe Sonata font.

Text for Vocal music was a bit problematic, but I did discover "workarounds"

This program is one of the reasons I still use OS 9 from time to time.

A sample of a choral piece made with NoteWriter II is attached.
Thank you my friend..................

Who experienced some work with "Notewriter" ? How does it compare to other Score Writing software ?

i will try this.
It may have be called 'Jupiter Systems' Infinity looping tools at that point.  It was certainly used by Emu, Korg, Roland etc to create their compact sound sets for their romplers.

There is scant info on this as it was early and before the internet as we know it.

lol : found this in the "Crazy Torrent" mentioned here:
