No BII build works under Big Sur since 22nd September 2020

Post by Renegade »

Hi,

I just wanted to report that none of the BasiliskII build post-22nd September 2020 work for me under Big Sur (instant crash to desktop).
The above-mentioned build works just fine.

Happy to give more information if necessary.

Cheers.

Hi, thanks for the report.

I cannot think of why newer builds would not work while the 22 September 2020 build does work. Did you upgrade to Big Sur after you installed and used the 22 September 2020 build?

Exactly at which point do the later builds crash? At launch? During startup?

Is in the BasiliskII GUI "Ignore illegal memory accesses" enabled (as it should be)?

Yes, I've been using HighSierra until late January and upgraded straight to Big Sur

It was crashing right at the Happy Mac (could see it for a tenth of a second)

Not, it wasn't :oops: I modifed the setting accordingly and now BII is booting properly !
Thank you for pointing me to that.
I apologize since I should have double-checked this before. :oops:
But who knows, maybe some other BasiliskII user may learn from my mistake :wink:

Thank you Ronald.

Take a look at our revised setup manual. You may find more information that is new and could be useful.
