Will the sparsebundle properties of the image be preserved when the volume is erased in OS9?


Yup! The guest OS doesn't even know what underlying block format the virtual disk uses: fixed size, sparse or VHD. Nothing you can do inside OS 9 will make a sparsebundle change into a fixed size disk.

I followed vasi's instructions, but sadly I couldn't install MacOS 9 on a sparsebundle image.
Error message as before. Curiously, it says that the error occurred when reading the "Big System Morsels" file (from the installer CD image, I assume), not when writing something.

Could you zip up the sparsebundle and make it available to me?

I wonder if we should build some preconfigured sparsebundles of various sizes and make them available... actually, I think emendelson may have already done that with his all-in-one build.

Sure. I sent you a PM with the details.
