PPC G4 Mac OS CD Install

Post by ManuelCS »

Hi, I am trying to install a System 9, using a .dmg file from a Power Mac G4 Software Install .dmg file. But at launch the installation app, a window appears seeing that I can not install the software in this computer. Some suggestions? Thanks by advance.

Hi,

Please make sure to use a cd image from a universal installation cd rom. SheepShaver will not boot from a cd image for a specific mac model.
See our guide for a suggestion about which cd image to use: https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/sh ... heepshaver

Best,
