Somewhat blurry pic of Project SE...

Project SE is an early Macintosh SE with 4MB of RAM and a 20MB Miniscribe hard drive. At the moment, it's not too happy. Powers up, goes to the floppy disk icon with a question mark, and sits there. I can insert a System 6.0.5 or 6.0.8 boot disk, get the Happy Mac, then it spits out the disk. If I try to boot off a hard drive, it'll pop up with a message saying the System File is damaged and needs to be reinstalled.

 

Since the floppy drive has been upgraded to a 1.4MB FDHD unit, I plan to pick up another motherboard with the later ROMs and swap that in.
