TAM recovery after OS X install
A MacNN reader noted a method for recovering from an installation of Mac OS X on a Twentieth Anniversary Mac, which apparently renders the machine unuseable:
My TAM, after installing Mac OS X, was rendered completely dead. After letting the system sit for several months, yesterday I ran across a post on the 20th Anniversary Website that described my situation exactly. The solution was in addition to disconnecting the PRAM battery also unplug the TAM. After 5 minutes I plugged the TAM back in, connected the P-Ram battery, and my TAM booted normally. Previously I had only unplugged the P-Ram battery (Overnight) with no luck. It would appear OSX tries to create a RAM disk on boot up-that is not TAM compatible.
