Hey,
a friend lend me his MacOS 8.6 iBook Installation CD. The CD boots properly. When i try to install them I get the following error: "This program cannot run on your computer. See the documentation for more information."
I wonder why it doesnt work... Is there a way to install 8.6 from these cds?


Thanks in advance!

Bye

In one purpose, that may have to do with the OldWorld/NewWorld ROM's and software. Therefore, that right there can be a potential conflict.

Depends if the CD is a restore CD or an actual OS 8.6 Installer. If it's a restore CD, chances are it won't work, they seem to look at hardware and quit if it's not the right box.

What ROM do you have for your SS Config? And how much RAM do you have setup?

Your best bet is to do a little research on the SS Readme's as per any quirks Mac OS 8.x has and se if they suggest anything. I seem to recall at one point it was recommended to boot with extensions off. (Hold down shift key to do this)

Sorry couldn't resist. Thank American Cinema for my knowledge of foreign culture.

The trick: install MacOS 8.1 which has HFV+ support. Load 8.1 with restore cd . Mount *.img file manually and copy it to a new HFV file. Works fine. No bugs, no errors.
