Hi ~ I'm a new fan of SheepShaver (SS) and Emaculation. I'm using Snow Leopard (10.6.8), I set up SheepShaver very successfully a few days ago. Was quite happily running OS9 on my Mac. I started out with a 4000Mb drive space, everything worked great! But I realized that I had way-more good ol' OS9 Applications than I'd realized... so, with a total 2.34Gb of OS9 apps loaded, and more to come, I decided to increase my allotted HD space - knowing that I'd have to start completely over with my SS installation... My Mac has plenty of unused space (nearly 200GB), so I just thought I'd allot say 30,000Mb for SS. So, I moved all of my apps out of SS, trashed everything left and started over....
So of course 30,000Mb wouldn't work, nor 20,000, nor 10,000, nor 8,000. Now I can't even get it to work at my original 4000Mb setting!
– Although it does work with the original default setting of 40Mb... which isn't going to help.
Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? I have deleted my pref's and even zapped my pram -via the included scripts, re-installed SS, etc. What is the maximum allowable HD space that I can create in SS pref's?
Any help would be very appreciated - am quite frustrated here
