Title: QEMU Mac OS 9.2.2 "Basic" Drive Image (qemu-system-ppc v5.2) PPC Emulation
Post by: on July 28, 2021, 11:48:35 PM
DieHard's Complete working QEMU v5.2 System
with Mac OS 9 Lives! 9.2.2 "Basic" Drive Image

The drive image contains: Mac OS9 Lives! Mac OS 9.2.2, Aladdin StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.3, Norton Utilities 6.0.3, FileType (File Association Repair, Creator Fix), Greg’s (File) Browser, USB Overdrive v1.4 (Use 2 Button Mouse w/ Right Mouse click), Mac Bench v3.0, QuickBench v1.5, Classilla 9.3.4b

NOTE: This pre-built qemu-system-ppc has been tested and created on High Sierra (Mac OS X 10.13.6)

If you are running, Mac OS X 10.11 or 10.12, you can still use the Mac OS 9 Lives drive image and the command script, but you may need and older version of QEMU found here:

Download this file, unzip it and double click the file "qemu.command" located at the root level of the expanded folder.
This will launch the qemu-system-ppc emulator with the settings in this command script via the Mac OS X terminal.
Please read this entire page for a full understanding of the download.

Important Notes:
1) The screen size can be changed via the standard monitor control panel in Mac OS 9
2) ISO / Toast images of CDs & DVDs can be mounted in Mac OS 9 via the QEMU Menu, "Machine" the "Change ide0-cd0" without having to modify the command script
