  • Apple Macintosh before System 7
    By early 1988 however this recommendation had been changed to System file 4 1 From A History of Macintosh System Software Appendix A in Macintosh System Software User s Guide Version 6 0 1988 Macintosh 128K and 512K hardware The following information reflects the current state of my knowledge of Macintosh 128K M0001 and M0001P and 512K M0001W and M0001WP hardware It may not be complete but it is accurate based on personal experience and detailed reports from others along with conclusions gleaned from the M0001 Registry There were three types of cases Early M0001 cases that read Macintosh on the back Later M0001 cases that read Macintosh 128K on the back These are somewhat rare M0001W cases that read Macintosh 512K on the back There were three models of logic boards 820 0086 C 1983 128K 630 0101 only 820 0086 F 1983 84 could be configured as either 128K 630 0101 or 512K 630 0118 boards 820 0141 A 1983 84 could be configured as either 128K 630 0101 or 512K 630 0118 boards There were two models of 128K 512K analog boards 630 0102 820 0082 B 1983 had a metal shield that ran along the top at BB1 Apple later removed the shield to increase convective cooling 820 0082 C 1983 84 had neither the shield nor BB1 There were two basic types of disk drives Early Sony model OA D34V Later Sony models OA D34V 02 or OA D34V 22 These models had a new insert eject mechanism There were two series of external disk drives model M0130 Serial number started with D made in USA The earliest of these contained Sony OA D34V drives Later they contained OA D34V 02 22 drives Serial number started with Y made in Japan These contained Sony OA D34V 02 22 drives There is a difference between the two in the coloration of the plastic case The plastic used for the D drives is the same as that used for early Macintosh machines The plastic used for the Y drives is slightly different and does not yellow at least not nearly as much Macintosh 128K and 512K manuals Macintosh owner s guide 030

software bundle was updated and reorganized for System 1 1 Finder 1 1g Font Mover and the additional fonts were moved to the System Disk in order to create more space on the MacWrite MacPaint disk and a new MacPaint disk was added The two audio tapes remained the same and MacWrite MacPaint still came in a separate box 690 5003B System Disk disk System 1 1 Finder 1 1g 690 5002B A Guided Tour of

Macintosh box 690 5003 C or 690 5003 D System Disk disk System 1 1 Finder 1 1g 690 5023 A System and MacWrite MacPaint Back Up disk MacWrite 2 2 MacPaint 1 4 690 5024 A MacWrite disk 690 5011 C

is absolutely no difference in content between the 690 5003B 690 5003 C and 690 5003 D disks The different part numbers simply reflect changes in the packaging In June 1985 the software bundle was updated for System 2 0 Finder 4 1 The training disks and audio tape remained the same 690 5003 E System Disk disk System 2 0 Finder 4 1 disk image 690 5023 B System and MacWrite MacPaint Back Up disk

  • The develop CD and its spawn
    for its early hardware and elsewhere in the Knowledge Base The source of the confusion is simple Apple started using version numbers for disks around January 1986 as indicated in parentheses below You can see them by selecting the disk or mounted disk image in the Finder and using File Get Info to view the comments They were also used on the labels of the update disks Apple sent to dealers an example is shown below The people who put the develop CD together tried to use these disk version numbers as System Software version numbers Looking at the disk version numbers in parentheses below it s easy to see how they came to result in the errors on the CDs and in the Knowledge Base System 3 0 Finder 5 1 January 1986 Macintosh Plus System Tools 800K v1 0 System 3 1 Finder 5 2 February 1986 Printer Installation 400K v1 0 System 3 2 Finder 5 3 June 1986 disk images Macintosh Plus System Tools 800K v1 1 Macintosh 512K e System Tools 800K v1 0 System Installation 400K v1 0 Printer Installation 400K v1 1 System 4 0 Finder 5 4 January 1987 Macintosh System Tools 800K v1 0 Macintosh Utilities 800K v1 0 System 4 1 Finder 5 5 April 1987 Macintosh System Tools 800K v2 0 Macintosh Utilities 800K v2 0 Revised June 1987 Macintosh System Tools 800K v2 0 1 disk image Macintosh Utilities 800K v2 0 1 Revised August 1987 Macintosh Utilities 1 800K v2 1 disk image Macintosh Utilities 2 800K v2 1 disk image The most unfortunate aspect of this debacle is that a sensible straightforward approach already existed for the numbering scheme used on the develop CD It could have and should have used the System file version numbers
