Hello all,
I'm trying to run Mac OS Tiger on QEMU, but it keeps on displaying the "No valid state has been set by load or init-program" warning. I think the boot image of Tiger might have been corrupted when I tried converting it from .dmg to .iso. I used Disk Utility to convert it to a .cdr, then I changed the extension to .iso. Is this what's causing the problem? If so, how would I convert it properly/find Tiger images online? Here's whats in my qemu-command:

#!/bin/bash
cd "$(dirname "$0")"


./qemu-system-ppc -L pc-bios -boot d -M mac99 -m 512 -cpu G4 -prom-env 'auto-boot?=true' -prom-env 'boot-args=-v' -prom-env 'vga-ndrv?=true' -drive file=Tiger1.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom -drive file=Tiger.img,format=raw,media=disk -device usb-mouse -device usb-kbd -net user -net nic,model=sungem

Thank you in advance!

I had the same issue when installing Tiger a while back. When you make the disc image, you'll want to use DVD/CD Master directly (.cdr) rather than a .dmg. Additionally, take note of this step Ronald described when he encountered the same issue:

Quote:
Ronald P. Regensburg: For creating the CD image in OSX Disk Utility: The first time I selected the CD volume in the left column in Disk Utility (as I normally do) but this time I selected the CD drive.


Edit: I'm not sure about Apple's stance on Tiger support, but I believe the Macintosh Garden provides some CD or DVD images of Tiger installers. That may be an alternative if you continue to have Disk Utility woes.

Hi,

Qemu might be able to read your dmg directly. Please try that first:
,format=dmg,media=cdrom

If your image still will not work, find a 10.4.6 dvd image at the macintoshgarden.
That image boots with:
-drive file=Tiger_4_6.dmg,format=dmg,media=cdrom

Best,
Cat_7
