Running Mac OS X on x86 PC!

Question

Wow. This will be nice if it's real :)

Due to the nature of emulation, PearPC is quite slow (the client will run about 500 times slower than the host)

Hmmm, It wouldn't be on sourceforge if it was fake, right? :unsure:

I ripped an ISO of my OS 10.2 CD-1 with discdump and it didn't want to boot from it, so I'm going to try OS 9.2

That's what we're all trying to figure out.

No luck on the 10.2 or 9.2 CD's that I ripped using DiscDump. I'll try dumping them from Linux sometime tomorrow and see if that works.

There is no difference in running it on Linux and Windows. Follow the documentation.

... I think this is the real deal. I can get it to boot from a 10.2 CD, but it errors out.

Download Gemulator Explorer at http://www.emulators.com/download.htm, and run it. Select your CD-ROM with the MacOS X cd in it, then choose File > Create Image File From Physical Disc.

After that, just configure the PearPC config file accordingly to whatever you named the image file (I used macosx.img).
