What is QEMU for Windows - PPC emulator for Mac OS 9.2.2?

QEMU is a very versatile and extremely broadly supported open source virtual machine emulator.  In 2016, QEMU could finally achieve what has never been possible before: emulating Mac OS 9.1 and 9.2.2 (albeit still it's quite slow and the sound support is kind of buggy at the moment).  Note that QEMU can also emulate Mac OS X 10.0 up to 10.4. At some point in the near future hopefully, QEMU will fully replace SheepShaver, but at the moment, SheepShaver still runs faster in most situations.

Advantages of using QEMU vs SheepShaver:

  • Mac OS 9.1.x and 9.2.x emulation (SheepShaver cannot)
  • Much more stable networking (SheepShaver randomly crashes while using the networking features)
  • Cursor animation (or anything else for the matter) does not reset the pointer in the host OS (SheepShaver does and it's annoying!)
  • QEMU can run on almost all imaginable CPU architectures, even ARM (e.g.: Raspberry Pi)

This bundle was put together by "that-ben" and is intended to be the easiest possible for beginners.  Just launch the "QEMU - Mac OS 9.2.2.bat" file and wait 30 seconds for Mac OS 9.2.2 to boot up.  Nevermind the yellow screen with a VRAM partition not found error, it will go past this without any problem. This package contains a 450MB disk image on which Mac OS 9.2.2 is already fully installed.  If you need a larger disk image, you can grab one instantly from here: Blank hard drive disk images (3GB HFS up to 30GB HFS+)

Networking is functional thanks to the Realtek rtl8139 driver for Mac OS 9, which is pre-installed here for you already.  It will use DHCP and network through your host Windows machine.

Pre-installed software includes:

  • Classilla 9.3.3 for surfing the web
  • QuickTime 6.0.3 for multimedia playback
  • Stuffit Deluxe 7.0.3 for extracting/compressing Stuffit archives
  • Toast Titanium 5.2.3 for mounting/creating CD images (such as .iso, .cdr or .toast)
  • DiskCopy 6.5b13 for mounting floppy disk images (such as .img or .dsk)

Compatibility notes

This program is for Windows.

 

USEFUL TIPS WHEN USING QEMU:

  • To install another Mac OS version, exit QEMU if it's running and then simply edit the "QEMU - Boot with a CD ISO.bat" command file with the Notepad to reflect your actual install CD ISO file location and launch that batch file.
  • To capture/uncapture the mouse pointer, hit CTRL-ALT together.
  • Hit CTRL-ALT-2 together to open/close the QEMU console.  DO NOT HIT THE X TO CLOSE THAT WINDOW OR IT WILL INSTANTLY EXIT THE WHOLE QEMU AND THE VIRTUAL MACINTOSH WITH IT.
  • To hot-attach a disk image ISO, in the QEMU console, adapt this command: change ide1-cd0 C:/path/to/file.iso
  • To hot-detach a disk image ISO, first in OS9, put it the trash, then in the QEMU console, type this: eject ide1-cd0
