Hi there,

I was wondering if it's possible to run a hard drive clone copy of my old iMac G3 hard drive. The hard drive is partitioned into OS9 and OSX. I am happy to just copy old files across from the OSX bit but I would like to run the OS9 partition within my Mac Book Pro. This way I can access the same programs and projects. I assume otherwise I will need to install afresh the old software I used to use within a new version of OS9 inside Sheepshaver.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks

Ben

Hi,

Part of the answer lies in the question which Mac OS 9 version you are running. Anything above 9.0.4 will not run with SheepShaver.
Perhaps you can also install a clean Mac OS 9.04 in SheepShaver and run your programs in that. (if they do not need a higher version).

Qemu, however, might run both OSX (10.3?) and Mac OS above 9.0.4 if needed. You would need to test whether a disk copy would actually boot with Qemu.

Best,
