I have seen Apple-ROMmed ST1480s and a few other SCSI drives that were
once required when you used Apple formatting tools, but the drives
still responded to the usual geometry inquiry packets. The typical
problem was that you couldn't put a Seagate or other OEMmed drive in
your Mac unless you had a patched formatting tool or used a 3rd
party tool. Apple-branded drives always worked in other machines.
