Getting Files from my MacII si to my Basillisk System 7

Post by slichtman »

Hi everyone.

I am really struggling with getting my downloads from my MAC Mojave to a usable disk image. I create the image, but the filesystems are not compatible.

Any thoughts?

Thank you

No need to use disk images. You can use the shared folder/Unix disk feature with System 7 if you install the File System Manager extension. You can find the extension on Macintosh Garden: http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/file-system-manager-12

Make sure you use a recent BasiliskII build as posted in this forum. Older builds cannot handle resource forks on the Unix disks with APFS file system on the host.

But how can the original poster get the extension into his Basilisk system if he can't use the shared folder? (I'm not being difficult - it just isn't clear to me how it can be done.)

Good question. I should have thought of that.

- Get HFS Disk Maker application. In the "All Downloads" section in our wiki is a link to the post where you can download it and where you can read how to use it.
- Get the File System Manager from Macintosh Garden and expand the archive on your Mojave host
- Use HFS Disk Maker to create a HFS disk image from the folder.
- Add the disk image to the volumes list in BasiliskII GUI

Hmm... just realized that the archive I stuck on Macintosh Garden under "Helper Extensions for BII" is a Stuffit 1.2 archive and not a disk image. I should probably make a Disk Copy 4.2 version of that as well to make it easier to load.

That will happen when the folder contains a .DS_Store file. As soon as you open the folder in macOS, that file is created.
After expanding the archive, do not open the folder. Creating the disk image should then work.

After making sure there is no .DS Store, I get a different error. I am able to easily convert the other executable files, but not the .sits

When I mount the volume, the mac has me format the disk.

Creating disk image.

Also how do I decompress .sit on my Mojave? I am unable to use the extension from Macgarden because I cannot create an image.

Thank you

Thank you
You'd use either The Unarchiver (great, because it handles almost every archive format you're likely to find), or Stuffit Expander for 64-bit macOS.
