I just got SheepShaver working:) I'm using a 2009 MacBook with OSX 10.9.5. I used a CD disk image instead of the real install CD. I got the boot ROM and the MacOS9 boot image from RandomRobot. I used this YouTube video as a walk through:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqgw4z_r2sE
But when I launched SheepShaver, this part didn't happen:
"During startup, the system will encounter the newly created volume and offer to initialize it"
SO I have a volume titled Unix and another titled OS9 but not the third one titled MacOS9HD.
I take it that this is an issue because my system doesn't have a hard drive now:(
My one thought is that I didn't lock the CD disk image (in its "get info" window) before I installed it—the video instructed against following that part of the SheepShaver instructions.
Without having locked the CD disk image, would it mount in OSX? Is that my problem?
Should I just uninstall and start again? Or is there a way I can initialize the volume at this stage?
If what I'm saying makes sense, could someone please help me understand why having the disk image mount in OSX prevented me from getting that prompt—the one asking if I wanted to initialize the newly created volume?
Thanks for your help and for having such an awesome community!
