Any advice on loading System 8.1 on my Quadra 610? According to Apple documentation, a 68040 machine should run 8.1 however I get a message that it will not run on this machine when I go to install it. I've got 40mb of ram and 50 megs left on my hard drive. I'm running system 7.1 now.

Hi
Are you trying to update to 8.1 straight from 7.1?
System 8.1 is an update and you will have to install System 8.0 first.

if you cannot boot from the cd, you do not have a retail version of the MacOS 8.1. i could tell you haw to do the pirates install, but then i'd have to kill ya.
