Hi,

I need to boot an iMac G3 DV. The USB boot methods don’t work for me.

Can I prepare a disk image in Sheepshaver with a booting Mac OS 9.1 (did so already) and 'dd' this to a connected IDE hard disk, then transplant this into the iMac?

I tried that but the Sheepshave image format doesn’t seem to be a 1:1 of a real hard disk’s content?

Regards
Lotta

Doesn't that iMac have a CD/DVD player?
Why not boot from an MacOS installation disk and install the MacOS?

I had an iMac DV SE -- I sold it when the slot loading optical drive started getting flaky -- that was around 10 years ago.

Those slot loading drives were notoriously flaky. I'm guessing his is dead now?

That said, if you take off the case, you can unplug the optical drive and plug any optical drive in in its place --just looks a bit unsightly dangling out of the case.

If you've got a Mac, you may be able to use Disk Utility to restore the image as a partition to an already formatted HFS+ drive -- but your Mac will need the Apple Driver partition set up on the drive first; all SheepShaver creates/uses is the HFS+ partition.
