    Thanks again


  16. Hi can’t seem to get this to work on. Powermac G5 dual 2 (late 2005 model) I get up to the part but don’t get the message on screen that says “The system software on the startup disk only functions on the original media…..”. Anyone know if I’m doing something wrong? Thanks

  17. You have no idea how many people you’ve helped with this video. Thank you!

  18. Thanks a lot for this "step by step" tutorial! Now I can work again with Freehand and export the final job to Illustrator… 😉

  19. Hi. I followed each of your steps, until it the part at 9:37. When I reopened SheepShaver, it still showed the file with the question mark. So frustrating!!! Please help! I'm using El Capitan, by the way.

  20. THANK YOU for creating this video. This really helped me out.

  21. I do on my early 2009 Macbook and works perfectly, and i can play some games on it, thanks for the tutorial!

  22. Worked the first time through. Thank you!

  23. Excellent tutorial. Thank you, very much.

  24. Hi Alex, I'm having problems with the Apple MacOS 9.0.4.iso file. My computer can't open it somehow. Whenever I click on it, a small window pops up with the message "The following disk images couldn't be opened. no mountable file systems". Do you know how to fix this?

  25. I don't understand why you don't have more subscribers than you do. You are a life saver. Keep doing these videos!!!

  27. Hey! I'm getting stuck on the part after I download the ROM. SheepShaver will still not open even though I have renamed it to Mac OS ROM. Any ideas?

  28. I just tried to do it on macOS Big Sur, but SheepShaver never open, I put the correct name to the ROM file and it didn't work… does any one have the same problem?
