Hi All,

I'm using windows xp, and I'm trying to use sheepshaver with a 4mb rom image (96cd923d), and an os8.1 installation cd image (I can also boot my basillisk2 hd files), but I cant click anything?

Every time I left click, it opens and closes the mac menu.

Have I done somthing dumb?

here's my prefs file

Code: Select all

nosound false

Still cant seem to figure out what I've configured wrong.. but madly bashing the shift/ctrl keys while macos boots seems to work around the problem, and lets me use the mouse when it finishes booting.

I finally managed to acquire an 8.6 install cd (dont ask)

This one actually installs and boots (unlike the os9 cd that installs, and shows "not for this mac" errors when you reboot) ... nstall.png ... Booted.png

It boots with extensions (all I had to do was remove the setup assistant from the startup items folder) images above.

Yay for me 8)
