Won't launch on El Capitan (Mac OS 10.11.6)

Post by timidpimp »

I downloaded the two different prebuilts for 10.7 - 10.14, but they won't launch at all. Nothing happens... no error message or anything. It simply appears in the dock for a split second, then quits immediately.

Any ideas?

Running a late 2009 Mac Mini with OS 10.11.6 and a C2D P7550 2.26GHz.

Did you follow instructions in the setup guide? Specifically, did you add a compatible ROM file to the SheepShaver folder and renamed that file Mac OS ROM (without file name extension)?
