RetroChallenge 2022 – Booting an Apple IIe the long way around

This is the log for my RetroChallenge 2022 entry via affiliation with The Australian Computer Museum Society. You can follow my progress on


I will be attempting to boot an Apple IIe from an AppleShare file server. The twist is I will be using an Apple IIe Card installed in a 68K Macintosh to boot via LocalTalk to AppleShare Server 3.03 running on an SE/30. I will also be trying to do it all with original hardware and software. I have a stretch goal of trying to do this via firstly LocalTalk and then Ethernet.
