If any of you have old Performas with System 7.1P through 7.1P6, you can use Apple Backup to back up the Performa bundles and if so, I'd like to see disk images of the entire system backup disks with Performa bundles!

Just reply to this thread or send me a PM if any of you make disk images of Performa 7.1 system software with any Performa Bundle!

Has anyone got a copy of System Software v7.1P3 with a Performa restore? It still seems to be absent from the Garden.

I enthusiastically second (or third?) this request for Performa bundles.

As far as I know Apple never provided any kind of factory restore disc or disks for these machines. All I know about are the "Apple Backup" and "Apple Restore" programs for do-it-yourself system restore floppies. I think it's really tragic that Apple chose not to provide factory restore disks like this since it really prevents us from restoring units to a true factory state. They required the consumer to create them up front which I think basically no one did and I think some history has been lost here as a result.

I personally had a Performa 475 and later a PowerBook 150 which we both preloaded with all kinds of goodies but neither had any accompanying software disk (beyond Disk Tools). Eventually we realized we should run the Apple Backup program on the hard drive to make our own restore floppies but by the time we did that we had been using the system for a while so it was far from a factory image. I was smarter when I got the PowerBook since I did it immediately and so really had something very close (as close as possible) to a factory restore. I ended up losing or discarding the disk sets for both machines long ago and I keep kicking myself for it (especially the pristine PowerBook ones) since I'd love to be able to restore them to a real or emulated Mac.

So, yes, if anyone has disks or discs with the factory bundles for any of these machines please upload them!

Bumping this one. Despite the fact that so many Performas came pre-loaded with 7.1P3, it continues to be elusive as it appears everyone never made/kept the backups and just updated to 7.5.3 when it came out.
