Mac Mini 1.66GHz Core Duo?
« on: January 17, 2021, 04:30:00 AM »
Noob question... I suspect this is a "no" but are any of the os9 disk images available on here suitable for a Mac Mini 1.66GHz Core Duo machine (2006)?

Thanks, great work on here.

Only unsupported G4 PPC Macs can be made to boot OS 9.

G5 and Intel are NOT able to boot OS 9, but can possibly run OS 9 apps via Classic if running Tiger on a G5 or via emulation on an Intel Mac.
