Hi,

I'm sorry to say I don't make my two Mac's any longer.  I gave them to my daughter who lets her children run their games on them.  I don't have any information left so I can't help out my neighbor now.

She wants to give her old MAC to her grandsons to play games on them but she has so much stuff on it, she would like to clear everything off and reload her System Disks 7.1.

Neither of us know where to start this process.  I would appreciate any information on the correct procedure to re-initialize the hard disk.

Thanks for your help.

Jeanne

Put disk one of the installer disks in the drive, and reboot. Itll boot off that disk and the rest is pretty self explanatory. You can use DiskTools to reformat/init the drive and the first installer is on that disk as well. Double click and itll take you through the rest.
