Can SheepShaver run more than 1system on a single computer?

Tue Dec 31, 2019 2:18 pm

Good Morning! ~ I am using a MacBook Pro 9,2 running MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave. I'd like to have ShSh run MacOS 10.6.8, and also OS 9.

I have a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 running ShSh with OS 9 at this time.

Is it possible to run both Mac OS's on my Mojave MBPro? Any advice on how to do this I'd be extremely grateful for! (I'm a beginner with using disk images, etc.)

Have a Happy and very SheepShaving New Year, all!

Recent SheepShaver builds will run fine in Mojave. SheepShaver is a PPC emulator, On the emulated PPC Mac you can run System 7.5.3 through Mac OS 9.0.4

To run OSX 10.6.8 on a modern Mac, you will need virtualisation software (like Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion, or VirtualBox). On the virtual Intel Mac you can run Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later. If you want to run Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) it needs to be the Server version of Mac OS X 10.6.

I've currently got Classic Mac OS from the initial Twiggy prototype through 9.2.2 running under Catalina through emulation, as well as 10 Public Beta through 10.5.8 running through emulation, plus 10.4.11 Server, 10.5.8 Server, 10.6.8 and 10.6.8 Server (plus 10.7 through 10.14) running under VirtualBox 6.

I can run them all at the same time, although things begin to slow a bit once I start spinning up OS X versions :)
