1. Sonnet Driver.sit: Sonnet CPU Upgrade Extension Version 2.0 2002

The following info is taken from this 2005 page on www.archive.org

2. Crescendo/Encore™ Software: ce_install_v231.hqx

Sonnet Processor - Version: 2.3.1
Description: This unified installer installs files necessary to support various Sonnet processor upgrades in the listed applicable computers. This software is not necessary for Encore/ZIF G3 nor Crescendo/7200 upgrades. Version 2.3.1 adds support for additional Power Mac G4 ROMs, and adds full support for correct processor speed reporting under Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X for Encore/ST G4 upgrades.

This installer now also installs (or updates) the Startup Disk X control panel, and moves the original Startup Disk Control Panel to the Control Panels (Disabled) folder. This control panel enables universal switching between Mac OS 9.x and Mac OS X System Folders on systems where Mac OS X has already been installed.

Note: If you have altered the extension name (ie: added spaces to the file name) of a previously installed version of Crescendo, Sonnet Processor Upgrade, or Encore, this installer will not automatically remove the previous version. You must manually remove it from your Extensions Folder.

3. Crescendo™/7200 Software: c7200_install_v11.hqx

Description: This installer software is required with Crescendo/7200 processor upgrade cards. Version 1.1 expands compatibility to virtually all PCI cards and further increases memory compatibility. It also installs the proper software enablers and Metronome™ utility into your System Folder.

Note: This software is specifically for the Power Macintosh® 7200 and 8200 and is the only software required.

For the most current information regarding the software, check the onscreen Read Me notes of the installer.

Read-me: To install onto a different System Folder than the one the machine is booted from, use the Custom Install option and select the correct Crescendo/7200 Enabler.

General Information
• New in Version 1.1

- Adds greatly-expanded compatibility and support for virtually all PCI adapter cards.
- Increases compatibility with various types and combinations of RAM DIMMs (memory).
- Reduces logic board RAM requirement to 8MB in all cases. (Total installed RAM must still meet or exceed Mac OS minimum RAM requirements.)
• New in Version 1.0.3

- Adds support for Crescendo/7200 G3 500/1M.
• New in Version 1.0.2

- Adds support for Mac® OS 9.1
- Adds support for Sonnet Tempo™ ATA100 card.
- Increases combined-total RAM capacity to 768 MB (384 MB on the Crescendo/7200 card and 384 MB on the motherboard).
- Fixes problems in which small amounts of memory on the motherboard resulted in unstable operation.
- Changes the installer so that when run under Mac OS 9.0 and above, the 7200 Graphics Acceleration extension is not moved to the Extensions (Disabled) folder; the extension no longer causes a conflict.
- Adds support for floppy disks under System 7.5.3, and improves support under later OS versions.
- Fixes an error in which the Startup Disk control panel would report the wrong system version of a selected folder.
- Fixes a problem under Mac OS 9.0 that resulted in the display of a “UTCUtils not found” error message, unless the startup volume was formatted as HFS+ (Mac OS Extended). This affected Sherlock and Adobe Acrobat 5, as well as other applications.
- Fixes a problem with System 7.5.3 Virtual Memory.
- Fixes a problem in which PCI accesses to invalid space did not return a bus error.
- Cleans up the guarded bit setup for the processor so that all I/O accesses are properly guarded.
• New in Version 1.0.1

- The following extensions are not compatible with the Sonnet Crescendo/7200 Processor Upgrade Card and therefore are moved into the Extensions (Disabled) folder:
7200 Graphics Acceleration
9600 Graphics Acceleration
Built-in Graphics Acceleration
Apple Monitor Plug-ins
System Monitor Plug-ins

- Fixes a problem where Virtual Memory was limited to 256 MB. It now can be set to the full 1 Gigabyte.
- Improves RAM timing parameters to make the memory system more robust.
- Fixes a freeze that would occur if the Enabler was present, but not the upgrade card.
- Adds support for the Tempo™ Ultra ATA66 adapter with firmware version 3.12 (and higher).
- Metronome™ now reports bus speeds correctly on all 7200 and 8200 models.
• Known Incompatible PCI cards

- Village Tronic MPDD+
• Known Issues

Here something new Sonnet Technologies. I check sonnet web page and click on computer cards. It will show no PCI for sale at Sonnet for anymore. Sonnet drop all PCI cards on their web page. That will hurt any body who has PCI mac. PCI mac will not be able to buy a PCI cards at Sonnet. There are only intel PCIe at Sonnet.
