That might only work on a certain model, all macs have a hidden image in rom, BUT, you nead bring up the interupt line (interupt switch or command-power on models without a swich) and know what to type. I say forget that, there is this awsome program called ROMmie, it dumps you mac rom in 3 ways, Raw, a list of all the individual resorces, and a resedit dump or your ROM. It dumps you rom EXACTLY how it is, open it with resedit, and bon voyage, PICT, snd on some models, BEEP-the start up sounds in binary of which you can convert to snd, and alot more!

I tried this e-egg on both a Performa 6360 and a PowerMac 7100/80 running Mac OS 8.1, and it didn't work.

the easter egg only works in System 7.5.x but you can see the picture with a program called ROMmie that copies the ROM content to your harddrive if you have a newer version of mac os (not X)
