OS X not booting

Post by 4-YearWindowsPro »

Hello, everybody.
I was trying to get OS X 10.3 on QEMU PPC Windows, but it cannot boot.
Here are some pictures:
I got through the install successfully but it can't boot.
When I check the startup disks, It is listed, but it is not right.
Qemu Windows build.
Mac OS X 10.3 - Winworld (It IS legal to download it since it has became abandonware already :wink: )
After installation:
qemu-system-ppc -L pc-bios -boot c -M mac99 -m 512 -hda macosdrive.img
Before installation:
qemu-system-ppc -L pc-bios -boot d -M mac99 -m 512 -hda macosdrive.img -cdrom instl.iso
EDIT: It did boot. I was patient and did not use the host on install. Also, for people, Did you know QEMU OSX only needs CD 1?
Thank you Apple!
