Short explanation of the content of the file: #!/bin/bash tells OSX this is a bash script cd “$(dirname “$0”)” set the path for the executable to current folder./qemu-system-ppc starts qemu with all the following as parameters:-L pc-bios points qemu to some required files, including openbios-ppc and the vga driver qemuvga.ndrv.boot d defines to boot from a. Aug 12, 2020 This guide assumes you are installing Mac OS 9.2 on a 2gb file that will act as your hard disk for Mac OS. The CD image you install from is called MacOS9.2.iso and the hard disk is called MacOS9.2.img. Installations of other versions of Mac OS or OSX (roughly) follow the same path. NOTE: When trying to install Mac OS 9.0.4 you need to make sure to use a version that contains a Mac OS.
Short explanation of the content of the file:
qemu-system-ppc.exe starts qemu with all the following as parameters:
-L pc-bios defines the location of bios files to be used.
-boot d defines to boot from a drive entry marked as a cdrom, “-boot c” would define to boot from a drive entry marked as disk.
-M mac99 defines the mac model used(*).
-m 512 defines the amount of memory (in Mb) for OS9/OSX.
-prom-env “auto-boot?=true” -prom-env “boot-args=-v” define boot parameters for openbios and Mac OSX. The “-v” makes the boot process verbose

-drive file=MacOS9.2.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom defines the name, location, format, and type of a cdrom (or dvd) image file to be used
-drive file=MacOS9.2.img,format=raw,media=disk defines the name, location, format, and type of a hard disk image file to be used
-sdl instructs Qemu to use SDL for the graphical display
-netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01 tell qemu to use the sungem network device on a qemu-internal DHCP server
-device VGA,edid=on presents additional resolutions to choose from in the guest
(*)The mac model entry accepts 3 options for the via parameter:
mac99,via=pmu (with PMU, supporting usb mouse and keyboard)
mac99,via=pmu-adb (this allows some older Mac OS/Mac OS server builds to use a keyboard and mouse through the adb bus)
mac99,via=cuda (default, this allows use of the older adb (Apple Desktop Bus), now less supported cuda)
