Hi bladynator,

Sorry about the trollish replies earlier. Someone has been disturbing forum topics lately.

About PearPC:

1. Make sure the path to the pearpc-6gib.img file quoted to the error is correct in your PearPC config file. "pearpc-6gib.img" should obviously be located in "C:\pearpc-0.4-win32-jitc\" just like it says!

2. What version of Windows are you using?

3. Post the contents of your PearPC config file here in the forum for examination.

4. Finally, you can try replacing the pearpc-6gib.img file with ours: http://www.emaculation.com/pearpc/macosx_6gb.rar (make sure to expand the rar first, of course). This is just in case yours is corrupt or something.

1: I did, and it is right. I put them all in the D: and started again. the first time it did not give the error, but also did got give the good results. I try'd again, but with the same error, but now: D:\mac\macosx_6gm.img

2: im using XP

3: can't right now, I shall post this later. ( im not on the right computer now;) )

4: I did:) ( see 1 )

When you get back to the system, do let us know what the not good result was... and share that config information.

Meanwhile... did you set up PearPC using our setup guide? Following it closely should take care of any problems:

yes I did follow it closely.
it was alright, until the error.

im at the right station now:)

here is my script:

## PearPC Configuration File

##
## Start Resolution
##
## (clients that use video.x can change the resolution at runtime,
## so this would be used only for starting up)
##
## format: "(width)x(height)x(depth)"
## or "(width)x(height)x(depth)@(frequency)"
##
## depth can only be 15 or 32
##
## default: "800x600x15"
##

ppc_start_resolution = "800x600x15"

##
## Set this to non-zero for turning on fullscreen mode on startup.
##

ppc_start_full_screen = 0

##
## Redraw interval (in ms)
## must be between 10 and 500
##
## If you set this higher, PearPC will spend less time doing redraws
## (and so run faster) but feel less responsive. You should adjust
## this to your computer speed and personal preference.
##

redraw_interval_msec = 40

##
## Key codes
##

key_compose_dialog = "F11"
key_change_cd_0 = "none"
key_toggle_mouse_grab = "F12"

##
## Loader
##

##
## Boot method
## this can be
## 1. "auto", prom will boot the first bootable partition found (default)
## 2. "select", prom will show you a list of bootable partitions
## 3. "force", prom will load and boot the local file prom_loadfile
##

prom_bootmethod = "auto"

## Example of how to use "force":

#prom_bootmethod = "force"
#prom_loadfile = "test/yaboot"
#prom_env_bootpath = "disk"

##
## bootargs: don't change unless you know what you are doing
## machargs: set to "-v" to get a verbose startup
##

#prom_env_bootargs = ""
prom_env_machargs = "-v"

##
## This is needed if you want to boot Mac OS X
##
prom_driver_graphic = "video.x"

## This will adjust the position of the initial page table (don't change)

#page_table_pa = 104857600

##
## CPU Config
##
## Processor Version Register
## Defaults to 0x00088302 (G3)
## Set to 0x000c0201 to enable G4 emulation
## Only change if you know want you are doing

##
## Valid drive types are:
## hd: A hdd image should be specified
## e.g. "test/imgs/linux.img"
## cdrom: A cdrom image should be specified
## For Linux or BeOS a cdrom device can be specified as well
## e.g. "/dev/cdrom"
## nativecdrom: Platform dependant
## Win (SPTI): drive letter, e.g. "d:\"
## Win (ASPI): SCSI host adapter,target,lun e.g. "2,0,1"

got a little bit further, now it does not give the error.
I get the bootschreem, but not with the CDrom, only the Disk0

what now?

In your config file, try changing

"prom_bootmethod = "auto"

to read

"prom_bootmethod = "select"


And make sure the path to your Mac OS X Install DVD.iso is correct.

And also, what version of Mac OS X are you using? Keep in mind that you can only use 10.4 and earlier.

I tryed, but it did not work...
I get the boot menu, but not the CDROM, that's all...

Fri Jun 25, 2010 9:48 am

Well, where did you get the DVD image? What version of OS X was it made from? If it is from a version that PearPC can't use, it might not show up on the boot screen!

edit:
STOP! I think its 10.6, so I try another one...

Just for some closure: what solved your problem?

a new ISO file:P

edit:
I always got a crash that says he couldn't read something... just restart your pc!!!!!!!
remember to dubble, quadrupple, check your iso and make sure its 10.4 or LOWER!!!!!! ( tiger )
when you want to close the boot screen, dont ever never press the "X" at the right top screen, press esc!
make sure you got the files right and the path, ( or put everthing in the same map, this will also help alot!

this is what helps me to fixed the error's:)
