Can't get around to start with Basilisk

Post by jackidrude »

Hi! I am trying to make it work but I miserably fail, I need help.

First problem I encounter;
While I was following 'Running BasiliskIIGUI' Step 2, I am seeing the 'DiskTools_MacOS8.image how ever when I 'Create...' to make the file to install MacOS753 (created in the same name) and "InstallerParts" in respective name, it does not add it to the directory. What am I missing there I wonder?

You didn't tell us the operating system that you're using or where you got BasiliskII. No one can help without that information.

The Basilisk II GUI is still in beta. It will create the file, but it does not yet add it to the volumes list. You will need to use the "Add" button to add the newly created file to the volumes list.

(This limitation in this beta version is documented in the post with the download link: https://www.emaculation.com/forum/viewt ... =6&t=10454)

Thank you very much, now I have solved the problem and just having another one about not enough disk space :roll: I wrote it to a post as a follow up, thought it would be better helpful for others.

If you are not familiar with creating (large) disk images, you may grab one here:

Best use something small like the 3GB image to keep things simple.
