Hello! im trying to get mac os x 10.0 to work on qemu but well i cant do anything cause of the keyboard and mouse not working. I have tried some commands but nothing.

[The qemu.bat code]

qemu-system-ppc.exe -L pc-bios -boot d -M mac99,via=pmu -m 512 ^
-prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -prom-env "boot-args=-v" -prom-env "vga-ndrv?=true" ^
-drive file=osx_100_4k78_install.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom ^
-drive file=MacOS10.img,format=raw,media=disk ^
-sdl ^
-netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01 ^
-device VGA,edid=on ^

Hi,

Please take a look at our guide, particularly the table at the beginning:
https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/pp ... or-windows

It says to use -M mac99 for 10.0 and 10.1 guests, not -M mac99,via=pmu

Best,

Hi,

You need to be a bit more specific. What exactly happens? If qemu opens for a split second and then closes, there is an error in your bat file.
To find out what is happening, open a command window, navigate to your qemu folder and start qemu.bat from there.

Hi,

The command line is very sensitive to spaces, particularly after the ^
And sometimes the - is not the - qemu expects when you copied the command line from somewhere ;-)

This simplified line should work (I left out all stuff that is default anyway).

qemu-system-ppc.exe ^
-L pc-bios -boot d -M mac99 -m 512 ^
-drive file=osx_100_4k78_install.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom ^
-drive file=MacOS10.img,format=raw,media=disk ^
-sdl

you can try to add:

-device usb-mouse

to the command line.

Could you expand on "did not work?"

There are plenty of us who have essentially that command line working, so we need more information to be able to help you.

My first thought is that your boot CD, osx_100_4k78_install.iso, may be corrupt and unbootable. But it appears that's the WinWorld image, and if you search for the image name, you get a WinWorld page where Valyria posted instructions to get it to boot back in 2017. The other reference is a Reddit post from 2020 where someone was attempting to boot it on an older version of QEMU that doesn't properly support 10.0. So which version of QEMU are you using? Everything from 2.8 up should do the trick.

As I wrote earlier, add -device usb-mouse to the command line.
You never said what happened exactly when you did.

If you are back to the earlier command line, add that part in between the other commands so the command line stays correct.
