Find yourself an old 500MB or 1GB hard drive and you can trick Basilisk II into thinking it is a SCSI drive. I've never tried it but some here have. I believe you need the Win32 ASPI Layer for this to work. You also need to make sure you remove all partitions from Windows so that you don't corrupt a...

I think we can bury this thread and darek now. He's been publicly defaced and shamed into leaving the emulation scene for good.

For those interested in seeing how my new documentation is going.

I sent an e-mail off to join the team so hopefully the docs can be kept up to date.

Universal Documentation - SheepShaver/Basilisk

So, just as I was fine tuning documents for Basilisk, I realize that SheepShaver and Basilisk share so many commo sources that it's much better to write documentation for them both at one time. In my efforts I may end up "borrowing" some documents written by others, I'm going to try my best and cred...

Good release. I kinda dropped out of the installer scene a while back. But then back at that time, there wasn't as many updates as we see today so it was a dead end task. Right now I'm merging the documentation of Basilisk II and SheepShaver into one universal html document system. I'm almost comple...

It might be possible with Toast 6. I know with previous versions of Toast you could make those type of CD's but actually making a disc image of it was something different. If you compiled a disc like that you could save it as an image but only the data tracks were saved. I know because I wanted to s...

The new build is slower than the previous release. A standard install of Mac OS 9.0.4 booting on release 2.2 takes aprox 22 seconds (from happy mac till the hour glass cursur dissapears) while with 2.3 this time increases to aprox 34 seconds. No doubt it's a result of the ethernet add-on or somethin...

What ROM do you have for your SS Config? And how much RAM do you have setup? Your best bet is to do a little research on the SS Readme's as per any quirks Mac OS 8.x has and se if they suggest anything. I seem to recall at one point it was recommended to boot with extensions off. (Hold down shift ke...

The error does not lie in the ISO. If the ISO was bad in any way, it wouldn't boot at all. Whoever made that DMG did a botch job. Mac OS 8/9 Installer CD's are very sensitive, and Mac OS X is the worst place to duplicate them unless a person is using Toast. The Mac OS versions that are used on Boota...

Depends if the CD is a restore CD or an actual OS 8.6 Installer. If it's a restore CD, chances are it won't work, they seem to look at hardware and quit if it's not the right box.

I downloaded and tried this but it refuses to boot from my 7.5.3 CD even though I selected "Boot from CD' in the prefs.

Any other ideas? The old Prefs editor had more options when it came to CD-ROM etc.

Just an update, 90% done on a visual guide for installing Windows 2000/XP Ethernet driver for Basilisk II.

Next is a updating of the rest of the ethernet documents including links to Apple supplied software for correct operation. I'll post an updated link when ready.

A real Mac HD will work for sure if it's SCSI and you have a SCSI card as I have done this before. It speeds things up bigtime when emulating, especially on a SMP system. (In Basilisk II) As for IDE drives, it's hit and miss because support isn't always there. There have been reports with Basilisk I...

If it's locking up on your maybe try starting over. Basilisk II is really picky and touchy so really it's not hard to mess it up. I keep a cloned copy of my drive handy in case of error.

Here is a question: Do you have the proper Cable hooked inside your CD-ROM for analog audio? Older Mac OS systems do not use digital audio and require a standard cd-rom audio cable be hooked up to the drive. Digital audio extracts audio digitally as if the audio cd were a disc containing binary data...

I think your problem is that your second machine doesn't use a standard NIC card and that is tripping up Basilisk II. My advise: Buy a standard NIC card for your second computer and save yourself the hassle.

I'm not 100% sure of what you are trying to do..and remember, connecting over IP only works if a Mac has AppleTalk IP sharing enabled.

Perhaps you could clearly state what exactly you want to do, ie; the reason behind networking machines then maybe I can give you an idea of what software to use.
