SheepShaver app
a compatible ROM file
ROM is a computer file containing a copy of the data from a read-only memory chip

It might take a while to find a compatible ROM for the Mac OS you want to run.

Consult a compatibility chart (Mac OS 8.1 - 9.2.2): http://support.apple.com/kb/TA22055

A few roms are available for Download here:
http://www.redundantrobot.com/sheepshaver-tutorial/
a generic retail Mac OS install CD (Depending on the used ROM file > System 7.5.3 through Mac OS 9.0.4)

OR

a disk image of a retail Mac OS install CD. The disk image must be in a non-compressed format (.iso)

Dont' forget to 'LOCK' the image file (>>Get Info) to convince the installer that it is the original reaD-only CD.

What
if you
want
to know
more
SheepShaver application
Compatible ROm
Keycodes
Narrow down the
compatible ROMs
Rename rom file
"Mac OS ROM"
.
Run sheepshaver
.
if it doesn't launch, keep searching

if this comes up, you are on the right track
based on our case study

[We got sheepshaveR to run
MAc OS 8.6 on a Mac OS X 10.4.11 machine!]


Step-by-step
Configure
preferences

add the ROM file name
"add..." the Disk Image file (.iso)
add the Unix Root path.
Do not keep the default value ”/” as it would make your entire hard disk the shared folder!
Enter a value for the amount of RAM that the virtual Mac will have (128/256/512)


Mount os disk image
in this case, we used new world rom because
it works best with OS 8.6 through 9.0.4
Set Video Type to “Window”
Do not use “Fullscreen”
Refresh Rate: On fast Intel machines the preferred setting is “Dynamic”; On slower machines try 7.5-30Hz
Check “Use Raw Keycodes”
add the keycodes file name if your keyboard lay-out is not US-English.
choose the machine you want to use


decide which system you want to emulate


find a compatible rom


configure settings


enjoy your new virtual world!

don't forget to 'lock' the disk image file

this is what happens when you don't


"save" preferences
Quit the application
[CONTROL + ESCAPE]
Relaunch Sheepshaver
...Incompatible
If you're brought back to this screen,
your rom and os disk image are incompatible.
But don't give up!
The right rom is out there..
