View Full Version : ? on old OS

11-23-2001, 03:49 AM
Is OS7.6 available for download anywhere or do I have to buy a copy somewhere. I'm looking but haven't found it yet. I am trying to get a complete collection of the older OS's to experiment with!

Hi Stewart,

Looking for the old software is like searching for gold. I would suggest posting on this site for wanted items http://www.insanely-great.com/cgi-bin/classwanted.cgi?search I will keep searching to see what I can come up with for you. I will keep you posted. Do you need the software right now?

Hi Angela,
No , I don't need it , just want to add it to my collection. I have several macs w/7.6 on them so I can copy system folders if I need them for another one. By the way, I am sending you another cd I think your neice will like. It's an original Performa cd w/lots of kids stuff on it. Look for it sometime next week.
Thanks for the link,

Okay, I understand now. Good we can take our time to find the software. The cheapest price I saw was $25 http://www.nexcomp.com/software.html and the highest was $42 at We Love Macs. Here is a listing of some Mac dealers that I looked at http://www.nexcomp.com/software.html. I wasnt sure how much you wanted to invest in the software, but maybe there is a way to get it cheaper. I will keep looking around for more leads.

P.S Here is some helpful info about installing 7.6/7.6.1 on certain computers http://macos.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http%3A%2F%2Ftil.info.apple.com%2 Ftechinfo.nsf%2Fartnum%2Fn26170

My niece will be thrilled with the disk you are sending because she is getting bored with some of the software titles she has ( dont have a lot) Thanks so much. How is your 8100 project coming along?

I'm going to another Mac junk sale on December 8th, maybe I can locate a 7.6 disk for you.
