From that guide:
Installations of other versions of Mac OS or OSX (roughly) follow the same path.
See the table above for information about specific qemu parameters required to run Mac OS/OSX versions.

Hi,

Does this happen at the end of the installation or somewhere at the beginning?
If it happens at the very end, you can try to boot from the hard disk image.

I'd also suggest you use our regular build to do the installation. The sound-enable screamer build will be slower, while not producing perfect sound.

Hi,

The latest is the greatest. And, no there are no drivers to install.
