SE/30 WITH IIsi or IIfx ROM
Thanks to Vintage Box : 68k Mac - OS 8/030 for the OS 8 & 8.1 hacks.

Description:
Following are methods for installing OS 7.0.1, 7.1, 7.5.3, 7.5.5, 7.6.1, 8.0, or 8.1 on an SE/30 with a IIsi or IIfx ROM SIMM.
With these ROM SIMMs Mode 32 is not required and should not be installed.
Minimum hardware requirements: 16 MB RAM, 44 MB free space on hard drive.
We have not encountered any problems with variations in SE/30 logic boards.
ROM SIMM information is included.  Compatibility with boot disks has been tested.
Two screenshots are included.  Field Report.

Field Report: (01/08/02) Michael S. Macdonald, (DCCGP with bar) msm@axion.net
finally.... the moment arrived...
placing the hard drive into the cradle of a demolished external Hard drive
case, and booting from
a floppy, he selected the external drive as the startup disk and pressed the
external reset button.
for seconds there was nothing...then...an image floated to the front of
the screen...the dreaded 'simasimac'.
Even as the "arggghhh" was building in his throat, the screen suddenly
cleared, things started whirring and extension icons began to appear on the
screen.....

YEEEEHAAAWWW!
An SE/30 with 256 shades of grey running OS 8.1!!!!

Proof positive that even an idiot could follow the instructions! (Actually
dse cadet had cheated a wee bit by installing the software while the HD was
contained in the shell of a Q605 (68040), thus saving some of the tedium of
reboots.

Everything went without a hitch Steve, DAMN it feels good.
Well done DSE!

Born Again Disclaimer:
Born Again, from Brochner Software, is software that permits installing OS 8 or 8.1 on 68030 Macs with 32 bit clean ROMS.
We in no way used Born Again to install OS 8 or OS 8.1 on the SE/30.
We never looked at any code from Born Again.
We got the trial version from the author and tried it once to unsuccessfully install OS 8.1 on an SE/30 with IIsi ROM SIMM.
