Hi,

Perhaps you expected Qemu to run without other preparations?
You need at least a CD image of the Mac OS/OSX you want to run and to create a disk image to install onto.
See our guide here on how to create an empty disk image and how adapt the bat file to fit to your situation:

When Qemu bombs out, you can use the command line to start qemu.bat. That way you can see what error Qemu reports.

That points to an error in the bat file.

It should say: qemu-system-ppc.exe

Can you copy the content of the bat file in your reply?
