I have a LC 575 running Mac OS 7.5.1. I installed School House Rock, America Rock on it. The first time I ran it, it locked up upon showing the second company name, the second time I ran it, it worked for a little while and displayed and error saying something like:
"Error

Problem opening pandor.lx

-36"

Then it locked up. Next Startup, I didn't even run it, I went straight to the harddisk. It displayed a blank bomb message like this:

and locked up, no sad mac. I told my older sister, she came in and started it up, went to the harddisk and (no bomb) it locked up. Do you guys have any clue what went wrong?

If you have a boot CD for the Mac, boot from that and see if you can view the misbehaving hard drive.
If you get the same or similar error, shutdown, disconnet the HD and boot from CD, if everything is normal, it is likely the hard drive is failing.

You can download 7.5 versions from Apple here

I don't have a boot disk, but we've been trying to reinstall the OS and my sister already had a sneaky suspicion that the hard drives were failing. These computers haven't been used in years, I wouldn't be surprised. Apparently they've given my grandma a sad mac before, since she already knew about the bomb message and the sad mac.

It didn't help but I'm holding onto it anyway. Is there any way I could write a boot disk for it, and if I can, does it have to be written with a mac? (And would it be a floppy disk? I love floppy disks... :blink: )
