Unable to start installing Mac OS 8.5

Post by Lynxifer »

I'm having a small issue installing Mac OS 8.5 using SheepShaver, I am using the windows version 2005-03-21 version, with the ROM file from the Mac OS 8.5 CD.

Everytime I startup SheepShaver, it boots up, and allows me to attempt the installation, but it always says "This program cannot run on your computer. See the documentation for more information." Of course, I am fairly confident it should install, but it won't install regardless of what I do.

I did some digging, and found that under Disk First Aid, it lists the disk I formatted as the hard drive (Using HFV explorer, I created a 500Mb drive) as an internal floppy drive, and Drive Setup doesn't list anything at all.

Hmmm, put all that stuff into a RAR, send it all to me via email/http/ftp and I'll see if I can try to fix that. :)

I think there might be a slightly dodgy reason for him requesting all that stuff, but good luck with fixing it.
