Mac SE/30 with Upgraded ROM

This page describes a small set of patches to Mac OS System 7.5 or later. These patches are required when using System 7.5 – 8.1 on certain Macintosh models with an upgraded ROM, such as a Mac ROM-inator II or a borrowed IIsi or IIfx ROM SIMM. The information below was taken from Gamba’s Macintosh web page and is preserved here to help ensure it doesn’t disappear from the web.

Mac IIcx and IIcx Note: It was originally believed these patches were only necessary for the Mac SE/30, but we’ve since learned they’re also relevant to the Mac IIx and IIcx, and possibly others too. Gamba’s instructions below will direct you to find sections of the System file with this general form:

… 0007 0003 0008 0003 0009 0003 …

These are pairs of gestalt IDs followed by boot methods. The boot method is 0003 for each of the gestalt IDs 0007, 0008, and 0009. For System 7.5 or later to function correctly with an alternate ROM, you must find the gestalt ID for your Macintosh model, and change the corresponding boot method to 0005. The notes below are specific to the Mac SE/30, which has gestalt ID 0009. The other relevant IDs are:

0007 – Mac IIx
0008 – Mac IIcx
0009 – Mac SE/30



Thanks to Vintage Box : 68k Mac – OS 8/030 for the OS 8 & 8.1 hacks.



Description:

Following are methods for installing OS 7.0.1, 7.1, 7.5.3, 7.5.5, 7.6.1, 8.0, or 8.1 on an SE/30 with a IIsi or IIfx ROM SIMM.

With these ROM SIMMs Mode 32 is not required and should not be installed.
Minimum hardware requirements: 16 MB RAM, 44 MB free space on hard drive.

We have not encountered any problems with variations in SE/30 logic boards.

ROM SIMM information is included.  Compatibility with boot disks has been tested.

Software links
