Due to lack of money and big trouble with that, spamming for myself:

I'm selling a daydream on eBay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8756768473

You get the ROM-Box in its latest incarnation, the latest Software running until MacOS 7.6.1
/*
(Mac freaks told to me that MacOS 7.1 was the best, you can run this version also :-))
*/
you get a printed manual in english and german and for testing purposes a preinstalled MacOS 7.6.1 harddisk file. (unfortunatly this harddisk is a german localized MacOS, but you can run first tests)

Vintage Micros have selled the last Box for about $750 and i'm sgure that piece is not so common and makes a big sense for owners of black hardware.
Shipping per air mail and registered letter costs about $10 to the USA, shipping in small package is $16 and shipping in a big package is about $40. Shipping to other countries are also possible :-).

Feel free to ask about the item (if you can stand bad english :-))

I've been thinking about buying one of these.  Can you tell me, is it easy or hard to install Mac OS onto the image or create a new image with English Mac OS 7.6.1?.  I Googled but did not find info about Mac OS 8.1 on this, it does not work?.

Brams, Installation of any OS below 7.6 is easy. I have an altered "disk tools" disk, the disk, with wich you start the installation process, wich contains a hacked DVD/CDROM driver. So any of the SCSI drives in your NeXT will work, if you will install from CD. (floppy should also be easy, but you have to exchange a lot.)

The other issue is MacOS 7.6.x. DayDream uses ROMs wich tell MacOS that you have an 68020 Apple. You have to patch 7.6.1 to work. This is realy simple.

(the section about 7.6.1)

If you send me your english system, i doub't that there will be problems since i own the Apple OS for myself, i can also do an english install for you. Maybe you can simply update my OS.

If you want to run old MacOS, why not buy a Mac?  I don't mean this to sound flip or as a flame, but it would be a very cheap way to go.

...if you want running Openstep or Nextstep, why not using a cheap PC?
The question has no economical sense. You have black hardware and want to run all the things are possible.
Mac-Emulation? you can even with an ordinary PC using Basilisk or for PowerPC OS sheepshaver outrival a classic Apple. An Amiga with an 68060 board is faster than any real 68k Mac, who cares?
I don't think that all the black hardware users trying to get the cheapest solution for working with an PC, its the love of these hardware to do funny things and buy hard- and software "to have it".

Trust me, I know what you're talking about.  I didn't mean it as a flame.  I love the black hardware too, but I'm running out of space and need to get rid of it, which is why I'm trying to figure out the best way to install NEXTSTEP/Intel on Virtual PC.

Exactly right Andreas, I have absolutely no use for the Daydream, it's purely just for the hell of it.  I already have 2 040 Macs a Quadra 650 and an 840av so I could and do run 7.6.1 on the 840av and 8.1 on the 650.

I have no space either for computers, but I shuffle them in and out of service  when I feel the need to play with one.

On the subject of 060 Amiga's, I was searching for an A4000T last night! :-)

the original Towers are rare and expensive, i own an A3k desktop with an Cyberstorm MKII (060/66), this is IMHO the beatifullest Amiga.
BTW, just in answering your Sig.: BeBox DP 66MHz is here :-)

Ahh the BeBox, pure geek porn, I love mine but like all my stuff it lives in the UK and I work abroad, so I only get chance to play on it about 1 month a year.

I think there are few members here with BeBoxen.

I had an Amiga A500 in about 1986 when they'd just come out in the UK, I sold (I wish I hadn't) my BBC Model B (any one remember that one?) to buy it, then after the Amiga I went and bought an Acorn Archimedes A3000.  Always loved the Amiga, though it was a pain in those days has I didn't have a harddrive nor could I afford one back then, I had to continually swap floppies all the time.

I have a dual 133 BeBox, serial PPC960402104. I don't get to play with it as much as I would like either.
