Power Macintosh Upgrade

The Power Macintosh 8500 Upgrade Kit can be used to upgrade a Quadra 800, Quadra 840, or a Power Macintosh 8100. The kit includes everything except:

  • The peripherals (such as the hard drive, floppy drive, and CD-ROM drive), which must be transferred from the original unit you are upgrading
  • A processor card, which must be purchased separately.

Refer to the appropriate Take Apart chapter (that is, the Take Apart chapter in the Quadra 800, Quadra 840AV, or Power Macintosh 8100 manual) for instructions on how to remove the drives from the original unit.

Refer to the Take Apart chapter in this manual to see where the peripherals should be installed in the upgraded unit and for instructions on how to install the processor card.
