Mac Portable questions

Hello, all:

    Well, I began to clean up the spoils of my recent recovery mission, and
I'm having problems with the Mac Portable that I got.

    Besides the hard drive and batteries being shot and the screen having a
small defect in it, I keep getting a Sad Mac code. It's code 0000000F with a
sub code of 00007FFF. I can't find a reference to the $0F code in any Sad
Mac code listings that I have (they skip over it, going from $0E to $10). I
get the code after inserting a known-working diskette. I've tried 400k disks
and 800k disks with the same results. I haven't tried a 1.44m disk yet,
since I don't have a recent Mac to create one. I've tried a 1.44m disk
created by HVFExplorer, but I get the "bad disk" message.

    Also, there's a 4-position DIP switch on the mobo. What's this for? Any
ideas on the Sad Mac code?
