Building Mini vMac for Windows 10 using the Windows Subsystem for Linux

Mini vMac's site includes extensive documentation on how to build the emulator (  However, I found that these instructions didn't cover my use case, which was a Windows 10 machine running Ubuntu in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. My build unfortunately ended up being a bit of a hack, because the Makefile generation did not quite get the command lines for the C compiler and tools...

How to "burn" (or write or clone) a bootable PowerPC disk image onto an USB stick in Windows

PowerPC Macs such as G3's and G4's can boot off of USB sticks, even if this functionality has been buried so deep in technical details that almost nobody knew about it until nobody used G3's anymore.  If you're a collector or hobbyist and got a G3 or G4 and would like to install Mac OS 8, 9 or Mac OS X on it but that the CD/DVD drive is broken, here's a complete guide that will prove to be useful to you.  It will...

How to convert a DMG file to an ISO disk image?

DMG files are disk images that are compressed using Apple's proprietary format and Mac OS X default disk image format.  The fact that the DMG disk images are compressed poses a compatibility problem to most Windows users and earlier Mac OS versions, e.g. Mac OS 9.  The ISO (a.k.a. CDR under Mac OS X) disk image format is universally supported, therefore it's a much better choice for storing files or making a disk image...

How to make a Universal Mac OS X Leopard Installer USB drive in Windows 10

This tutorial used this copy of Leopard, a 16GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash drive, and Windows 10 version 1909. An 8GB drive should work fine, but that is the minimum size I would recommend to try. You will also need to download TransMac. The version used in this tutorial is TransMac 12.6. Note: TransMac costs $59, but a 15 day free trial is also offered and will work well enough for this purpose. Please purchase a license if you intend to use the...

How to recombine (join) split files (.001, .002...) into a single ZIP archive under Windows or OSX

When you come across split ZIP files that look like sequential part numbers, before extracting files out of the archive, you first need to join the split files together into a single, complete, ZIP file.  A split ZIP file could look like this, for instance: 691-5088-A.zip_.001 691-5088-A.zip_.002 691-5088-A.zip_.003 691-5088-A.zip_.004 NOTE: Just so it's clear to everybody, this article talks about ZIP but it obviously works on...

Shaving The Sheep! Mac OS on Windows (some thoughts and pointers)

I always tend to run emulators on my machine. With that in mind, I do have hours of VMs in Virtual PC, VirtualBox, VMware, QEMU, and SheepShaver under my belt. But I've first used PPC Macs in high school, and now that I can emulate them, I would like to share some of my experiences here, as well as some pointers. Please take note that you are encouraged to give me a few pointers of your own: leave them in the comments! My Mac OS...
