Mac OS 7 on Windows




In this instructable you will learn how to install Mac OS 7 on windows. Dont worry I have all the files you need. :)

DOWNLOAD THIS FROM APPLE..... You wont need it but its just so apple gets the credit for the OS. So please download if your gonna do this.

Step 1: Download and Unrar.

Ok here are those files i promised you.

Download and unrar them to a folder or somthing.

Once they are unrared youll find a zip file in the folder. Extract it and youll fine a 24 mb disk image.

Step 2: Run the Emulator.

Ok open up the mini vmac program and youll get a screen with a disk and a "?". That means that there is no disk inserted right now. So to put a disk in drag the install 1.image file into the emulator and it will say welcome to macintosh and bring up an installer.

Step 3: Install

Its gonna say can't install because its not a system disk.. but remember that disk imaged we unzipped earlyer? Well drag it into the emulator and click install. It will prompt you to insert a different disk. Find it from the images that you unrared earlyer. You will have to change disks a few times and just drag and drop. Dont worry about ejecting, it does it automaticly when you drag the new one in.

Step 4: Finish Up

Ok now that you have it installed click quit. Then it will say its say to turn off. Click restart and it will bring up the no disk thing again. This time drag the 24 mb hard drive image into the emulator and it will start up. Every time you want to run the os for now on just drag that hard drive image in.
