Sheepshaver crashes while installing Mac OS 9.0.4

Post by MicroApple »

I decided to install Mac OS 9.0.4 on a 1 GB Hard Disk but Sheepshaver crashed while installing Mac OS 9.0.4. Am I used the wrong ROM?

Is this in windows? Using our download?

Perhaps check the GUI for the setting:

I am using current version of Sheepshaver and "Power Mac 7300 & 7600 & 8600 & 9600 (v1)" ROM.

Please check our guide for a tip to find a rom we advise to use.
If things work with that rom, then perhaps you can experiment with a different rom.

Unfortunately, it still crashes with old-world ROM.

Did you check your GUI settings as Cat_7 suggested? Specifically, did you make sure to enable "Ignore Illegal Memory Accesses?

Now I selected that but the setup says "The application Apple Software Restore could not be opened." and there is no choice to stop that error.

It seems that you use a system restore disk image, not a system install disk image. Find an install disk image.

I believe you are following some guide you found somewhere?

Perhaps following our guide (of which we are fairly sure that it will lead to success) would be advisable ;-)
