Hello,
I'm currently purchase for 5 (5$ US) a Powerbook 145 which seems to work but system is not booting correctly...
I was thinking about reinstalling the system (Mac Os 7) but I don't know how to do that on a Mac...

First of all, I don't have any system disk but I found "disk images" from the Apple web site.

So how do we install a OS on a Mac?

I just have PC so I don't know how to create disk from the images I have, can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

As far as I know, those images from Apple have to be made on a Mac. I never got them to work though.

Best of Luck!

You can in fact make 1.4 meg Mac floppies on a PC.

I usualy do this in an emulator, Basilisk is what I use most of the time.

I'm sure that there is a lighter weight way to do it though.
