Mac OS X 10.3

Comments

  • Thank you!! Brought my G4 back from the dead.

  • Update on this: you can now run these older OS X releases and betas in QEMU. Even 10.0 can be run without issue. The Developer previews require a special build of it though.

  • what should I use for my iMac G3

  • Try to find something period appropriate...
    So MacOS 8, 9 and early versions of X will be fine...

    QEMU-PPC now has sungem networking built in as well as rudimentary audio. Audio can be a bit choppy in some applications still.

  • 10.4 and 10.5 are becoming abandonware, if so, someone please upload them? (also, can someone upload os x server 10.0 - 10.5?)

    There's a 10.4.6 DVD and 4 CDs of 10.4.0 on MacintoshGarden.

    Burn the images using imgburn on Windows or Disk Utility on Mac. Once done, insert CD 1 into the drive of the G4 and boot from it. Swap discs when told to.

  • trying to install on my imac g3 with a usb stick, it starts to boot, then turns all usb devices off and on, and after about a minute it shows the prohibitory symbol (this happens with all versions from 10.0 up to 10.3)

    suburbGira, try burning them to CD-R’s and try again. I had issues with the first disk for some reason.
  • This means system crash or it's unspported mac

  • Mohamed, the later iMac G3’s should be compatible with Panther. Mine refuses to boot the first disc despite the system having came out in the summer of 2001.
  • The ISO files have problems booting in QEMU. Booting from the first disk in QEMU says - invalid option. Renaming the iso to simply Panther will work but selecting the partitioned Hard Disk will say Mac OS X cannot be installed on this computer. Mac OS X cannot be started with this computer. Can someone fix this. I had no problems with disk 1 for PearPC.

    I've just tested the ISO in QEMU on Windows 10 and it installed without any problems. I started QEMU with this command::

    qemu-system-ppc.exe -L pc-bios -boot d -m 512 -M mac99 -prom-env "auto-boot?=true" -prom-env "boot-args" -prom-env "vga-ndrv?=true" -drive file=panther.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom -drive file=panther.img,format=raw,media=disk -sdl -netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01

    How do you partition the disk? I keep getting error "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume. You cannot start up your computer using this volume" when selecting the volume.
  • @WinWhat
    Close QEMU and restart, go to disk utility and erase the disk, then partition again. It should work now.
  • @jonirob
    Thanks! Now it worked.
    Note: no need to erase and repartition the disk
  • I met the same problem when I first partitioned the disk and tried to install it on the newly partitioned disk. But after rebooting, the installation process went on smoothly. Maybe rebooting is necessary before installing to a newly partitioned disk?
    I've installed it successfully, but how to change the screen resolution?
  • @SkyWolf

    Open System preferences, select Displays and choose your resolution from there.
  • Can I burn the 3 isos to a single DVD?
  • i'm trying to install this on pearpc, but it doesn't support disk switching while running, so what i'm thinking about is to make a single iso so i can have a "install dvd", but how do i do this? i didn't find any install dvds on the internet, and the ones i tried didn't work, pearpc just freezes when i put those install dvds.
