OS9 doesn't start correctly

Post by alex_extreme »

I can't get Mac OS 9.1 to boot on SheepShaver using the Mac OS 8.6 ROM I have. This is the message I see:

Any ideas?

There are ways to workaround that but SheepShaver crashes later during extensions load because the Native Resource Manager is not installed. The 68k selectors were still available in their lowmem locations rather than the expected ppc variants...

So, only MacOS 9.0.4 at most is supported at this time.
