    Hey all,

    I had an idea, to migrate my dead iMac G3's HD to Sheepsaver! so i could still play all the old games such as spectre, sim city 2000 etcetc.

    It had Mac Os 9.2 and OSX installed on the same partition. so i thought 'yea this might just work'. i mounted the HD on my MBP, created an image of it from Disk Utility and tried adding it into the SheepSaver boot list thing.

    It turns on but gets a question mark on the screen, meaning that it cannot find the OS. i wonder whether it has anything to do with the fact that there is a OSX install on it??

    does anyone have any solutions or methods to fix this?? has anyone else done it this way??

    i hate to bring up an old thread, but I've had an idea. I am going to try to delete the System folder from the disk image and see if SheepSaver can recognise the OS9 installation...

    i hope somebody is benefiting from this haha!
