Mac-on-Stick: DIY

I am starting a little DIY guide for Mac-on-Stick right here on the forum. The purpose is to let people be able to actually use the thing instead of trying to troubleshoot it. Good idea, huh?

Long due: The guide is finally ready! See this link for details: https://portableapps.com/node/11181

vMac rom

I finely got something to work... wasn't easy. If your interested, the vMac.rom file is a dude. After a day of searching the hack net, found one that works, and it wasn't even in the dark....

http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Bit/6458/vMac.html

I got system 7.5.5 to work, but I'll have to dig the link out for ya, wasn't from the apple or vMac site... not much works there.

It's a interesting project, lest I got DSL to relieve the stress... it does work.

Did you know that the entire operating system use to fit on a 5 1/4" floppy disk!

You've got OS 7.5.5 to work? Does Disc Copy work (I'm not sure I spelled it right)?

Here you go....

Just need vMac.exe. Drag the dsk file onto vmac.exe and it will boot into system 7.

No, I could never work it

No, I could never work it out either - this was made using a diff method, can't find the source now though...
