Hi.

After taking a long break from Macs and installing tons of Windows betas, I went back to Mac betas.

And I ran into a problem - the build refuses to boot the installer saying "Still waiting for root device".

Here's my QEMU.BAT:

Code:
qemu-system-ppc.exe -L pc-bios -boot d -m 512 -M mac99 -prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -prom-env "boot-args=-v" -prom-env "vga-ndrv?=true" -drive file=Mac_OS_X_10.1_5F24.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom -drive file=MacOSX101-5F24.img,format=raw,media=disk -sdl -netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01


Please help!

Perhaps you can try -cpu g3 for this build. Where does that install image come from?

Best,

Had no luck with -cpu g3. The ISO originated from WinWorld. A quick search on MacintoshRepository and MacintoshGarden turned up nothing.

Try this:

qemu-system-ppc.exe -L pc-bios -boot d -m 512 -M g3beige -cpu g3 -prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -prom-env "boot-args" -prom-env "vga-ndrv?=true" -drive file=Mac_OS_X_10.1_5F24.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom -drive file=Mac_OS_X_10.1_5F24.img,format=raw,media=disk -sdl -netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01

It works for me with build 5F24.

Which qemu build are you using? I get a kernel panic...

QEMU Build 08-01-2019 on Windows 10, I tested it again about half an hour ago, I used a pre-formatted 2GB drive for convenience, it installed without any issues.

Ah, that panics in my place too!

But not anymore after setting qemu-system-ppc.exe to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode ;-)
Whatever might be going on there....I thought we had left those issues behind.

Thanks, this config worked. However, I slightly modified it for verbose boot.
