  8. If the disk image is rebuilt with correctly configured boot blocks, then perhaps it may load on a dev Pippin with extra RAM. The disk is intriguing as it contains a full Finder (which would have been rejected by Apple) and "AppleShare 3.5, Pippin 1.0" from the 11/96 SDK CD. by Pippin @WORLD & Atmark, Twitter. 2020-06-23.
