    Bootloader for BIOS?

    Hi! I need to find botloader for BIOS. Reason is simple: I have installed OSX and Linux. Linux bootloader cannot see (U)EFI bootloader and never boots into OSX, it can can call bootloader but Grub is written for BIOS and calling is impossible. Selecting OSX causes only reboot. Exist any OSX bootloader for BIOS? Thank you for help, reply or comments. Miro

Even - it has 64-bit CPU. Thank you for your help. Miro
  5. Hello! I have installed OSX86 10.4 Tiger on my Compaq Evo N1000v laptop. I want to use other OSX86 version on my Asus A6R laptop. Problem is that this laptop has Intel Celeron M CPU... is possible to install any OSX version on laptop with this CPU? Thank you for help. Miro
  6. Hi! I have installed OSX86 10.4 Tiger and yesterday my bootloader failed. Is possible to boot into OSX without repair? By floppy or other way? Thank you for help. Miro
  7. Hi! I want to place any bootmanager to floppy disk. Exist any which fits into floppy disk and works from there? No matter of GUI, best bootable by disk selection or possible to detect OSX, Windows, Linux and even MS-DOS (yes, I have on single disk OSX, Windows and DOS and works - Linux not yet). I hope anything easy to modify. Thank you for help. Miro

    Thank you! I have one retro-notebook with tehese specs: HP Compaq Evo Notebook N1000v CPU Intel Pentium 4 2.2 GHz Cache L2 - 512 KB 1 GB DDR SDRAM 266 MHz / PC2100 - 266 MHz SO-DIMM 200-pin ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 - 32 MB DDR SDRAM 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) Integrated Microphone, stereo speakers, keyboard, touchpad, display DriveLock, Smart Card security, administrator password, memory change alert, ownership tag, security lock slot, wake on LAN 3.5" 1.44 MB floppy CD-RW / DVD-ROM combo 10/100 Ethernet IEEE 802.2, IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u compliant Looks like Leopard can work, or even Snow Leopard? Please confirm if yes and if you can add any links to download bootable DVD. Thank you very much! Miro

    Retrocomputing Qs

    Hello! I have installed Mac OSX Tiger. Want to ask what a requirements has Leopard and/or Snow Leopard x86 Exact CPU (Intel), cores count, DEP, Virtualizatinm, RAM, VideoRAM and other. Also - I have Q if exist any project like OSX86 for MacOS 8 or 9 - running these 68k/PPC OSes on Intel x86. Q is also about Apple GSOS - like GEOS for C64/128 and Apple II has version for DOS - exist anything like this? Thank you for aech help. Miro

    Mac and DOS partition together?

    Ok, understand. Currently I'm developing applications for Windows 64-bit/32-bit, standard or UWP, also for DOS. I began with Linux, currently Mint 32-bit (only attempt). I have main computer featuring: Asus Z-270A Prime MBusing UEFI incl. SecureBoot with Intel Core i5 CPU w/ DEP, VT-x and integrated GPU, 20GB DDR4 RAM, ~7TB storage space with Windows 10.1803 x64 I know it is short info, but I think it can be enough. I wanted to start with Tiger for having running Windows and OSX at once and I think Tiger is last one which supports Rosetta (UniBin) possibly run on many platforms (68k-PPC-iCPU32/64). Really I'm also developer of software for 8-bit computers incl. Apple and also MacOS on MacSE 68k architecture. Of course going forward needs else many steps... If my main PC specs allows me install Mojave, I try it. I want to ask again one Q. When I create DOSWIN partition table, is possible to adapt OSX Tiger partition to it corectly? I want to leave Tiger always installed. Thank you for reply on these Qs and thank you very much for not crucify me. Miro
  11. Hi! I'm here new and also Mac newbie. I own Mac SE and now tried to install OSX86 Tiger on old Intel notebook. I'm yet Windows and DOS user and programmer. I'm DOS friendly from 16-bit applications development and some software requires DOS. I tried to install OSX86 and DOS together on single disk 'cause notebooks cannot handle two or more. When I created DOS style partition, DOS was working, installation of OSX86 finished and after reboot OSX tried to start but left hanging. I think it is 'cause partition table must to be created in OSX Disk Utility. It is really so, so I created partition table by this way. I installed and started OSX86 correctly, then installed MS-DOS 7.10 leaving Apple bootloader untouched. OSX86 works and list of OSes is OSX and Foreign System. I tried to start DOS, but it reports invalid disk - after DOS install before reboot DOS was working. So, sure is that DOS and Mac partition table are not compatible and not interchangeable. I tried to install Linux Mint type Commodore OS Vision and they working together. So, Q is: Is possible to override this problem? No matter of way - tools or disk managers or so... I tried to use DOS based bootloader and then it attempted to start OSX, but it hangs only. If is any way to get DOS and OSX86 working together can anybody help me? Why I need notebook: It is old notebook with COM and LPT ports also other IO, even floppy disk drive and this I need to use for important DOS software. Modern computers missing them, near all. Why don't use modern computer for even newer OSX? It is for me problem 'cause I can't have running Windows and DOS or OSX together, then I can only switch to OSX... Linux is not so important. I want to develop software for OSX and this can bring me chance. Even Windows programs can run on OSX and Linux by Crossover - so even this is great, only don't know if can Crossover run DOS software on OSX - Windows has NTVDM (NT Virtual DOS Machine) subsystem for running 16-bit apps even on 64-bit Windows, this maybe can be applied with Crossover, but I think not applicable. I heard never about any software for running OSX apps on Windows or Linux. Running Windows apps on Linux can run Crossover or Wine, DOS apps I discovered not yet. But Linux apps are bit supported in Windows 10 by Linux subsystem, still needs enhance. So - first - I know that OSX cannot to be installed on other than Apple hardware, but I was searching for forum where is talking about Windows and OSX together - I think I found it here. My reason for running OSX on non-Apple hardware is development for OSX, not only use. So, if you will judge me or even crucify, think about what I want to bring or steal to/from Mac OSX. Thank you for each help, reply, patience. Miro
