Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

I'm running 10.12.6 10.6 if you want a base Intel compile 10.7 if you want to support all Intel hardware 10.11 if you want to support all 64-bit Intel hardware 32bit Intel Macs can't update to 10.7 they came with a 10.4 version (10.4.9 iirc) and could be updated to the latest 10.6 but not further.
