PearPC Installation

As promised, after come back from my holiday in Warsaw, I publish here all the steps i followed in order to get MacOSX working on my Windows XP system.

First go to the download page and get the win32-sdl-jitc file.
Extract it to your "/PPC" folder.
Be sure your PPC folder contains also these sub directories:

-PPC
-PPC/imgs
-PPC/dev
-PPC/dev/cdrom

You will use later.
Now you need an hdd image file, download it from here and extract the file into your /PPC/imgs directory. Rename the extracted file into "hdd.img" (it's a 6Gb image file)

Now you need a MAC OSX installation disc. (you can buy it form ebay).
Since PPC does not support cdrom you need to convert cdrom into .iso files ( with Nero or others cd burning utilites ).
Copy all the .iso files into your /PPC/dev/cdrom directory.

Ok, now you need to create your configuration file in order to start. This is my configuration file "alex.config"

#PearPC Configuration File
ppc_start_resolution = "1280x1024x15"
redraw_interval_msec=30
prom_driver_graphic = "video.x"
key_toggle_mouse_grab = "F12"
key_toggle_full_screen = "Alt+Return"
cpu_pvr=0x00088302
# I gave to mac up to 560Mb of RAM
# comment the line below to assign the default 128Mb of RAM
memory_size=0x20800000
prom_bootmethod="select"
prom_env_machargs="-v"

# HDD
pci_ide0_master_installed=1
pci_ide0_master_image="imgs/hdd.img"
pci_ide0_master_type="hd"

# CD-ROM
pci_ide0_slave_installed=1
pci_ide0_slave_image="dev/cdrom/Mac Os X 10.3 Panther Cd1.iso"
pci_ide0_slave_type="cdrom"

# Network
pci_rtl8139_installed=0
pci_rtl8139_mac="de:ad:ca:fe:12:34"
pci_usb_installed=1
nvram_file="nvram"


Now, from the command shell just type: ppc.exe alex.config..
Boot from the cd, form the list you will see and let's wait until mac installation starts. at this point be sure you have a lot of coffe near you, you have to wait a long time... long time (depends on your computer)

P.S. Once you got a working OSX installation you can take a look at this link:

Here you can learn how to mount your .img hdd on Windows in order to transfer files between Windows and MAC.
