Run Classic from a disk image in Tiger?
Authored by: qnational on Jun 17, '05 09:29:38AM

Hi all,

I've been using this trick at my office with great success until now. I've just received a G5 that shipped with Tiger. After the install I've gone through the process, as I've done at least 50 times in Panther, and after typing in the commands in Tiger, I get the following:

bless: unrecognized option '--bootBlocks'

I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem in Tiger? Also its seems that the Classic control panel isn't available in the System Preferences, which seems even more strange. Its a clean installation.

Any thoughts?

Run Classic from a disk image in Tiger?
Authored by: brfransen on Jul 07, '05 11:05:42PM

I ran into this to. I was able to fix it by copying the system folder in the disk image to the root of my boot drive. I then rebooted and reopened System Preferences. It now had a Classic Preference Pane. I mounted my Classic disk image, selected the System Folder on the disk image in the Classic Preference Pane, and started Classic. Once it was started I deleted the OS 9 System Folder I had copied to the root of my boot drive.

The only problem I have encountered is that on reboot my Classic disk image is mounted. My guess is that this is because Tiger is checking for Classic to determine if the Classic Preference Pane should be displayed in System Preferences.
