Somebody brought to my attention that they could not get Mac OS 7.6 installed on these Power Macs:



    4400

    5500

    6500

    7300

    8600

    9600




This is because these machines, or some of their variants shipped slightly before, or alongside Mac OS 7.6.1.



These machines will run Mac OS 7.6.1, but it is necessary to install from a fully Mac OS 7.6.1 install CD, not through updates.



The same applies to the PowerBook 3400c.

One solution is to install Mac OS 7.6 on another Mac and choose to install everything. Then install the update to Mac OS 7.6.1. Put the files on the computer that you want to use with Mac OS 7.6.1 and it will boot properly.

I had a 7.6.1 update cd with my 4400 but I did not use it due to the fact I liked Mac OS 8 better.

The seller told me it had run on the machine but I can't say how he'd done it.

I used the 3400c CD in my 2400c, and then updated to 7.6.1 via the 3400c Updater. Worked perfectly!

My 4400 install cd just works on 4400s.

I think it was the same with the 7200's one...

I'm buying myself a 1400cs, anyway one thing a saw was that the supported OS is 8.0 through to 9.1, please tell me I can get OS7? Crying or Very sad



I was pretty sure that it could... I'm going to try anyway, it was released in 97/98 and so I am guessing that it would require a 7.6.1 install CD, anyway short of buying a copy from Apple which I don't necessarily want to do, would anyone be able to send my a copy of OS7.6.1 if they can even just to try.



But there's something to look into, wether or not the 1400cs can take OS7.6.1
