The Harddrive - Backup strategy - Qemu
Currently this is I believe the original 4Gb hardrive which contains the whole history up to today in Macos 9.2.2 swedish version from the previous first owner! I would like to preserve it in an image form usable in qemu before messing around with hardware and software.
I have been able already to install 9.2.2 from scracth in Qemu, so getting familiar for this part but I have to say I more uncertain related to the steps before.
Is it as simple as?
- format a usb stick in HFS
- drag the complete harddrive there
- make an image from usb stick
- boot the image in QEMU
Replace the harddrive
Learning from Action Retro I have ordered a 16Gb industrial disk straight ... on its way!
The "secret" port which can be used for extension .... sounds fun!
The keyboard for dummies
I used it mostly with keyboard on my legs .... need to learn how to navigate the menus from there! Any Macos 9 keyboard shortcut reference for dummies?
Is MacOS 9 flexible enought to be set with one lnaguage and the keyboard from another one? I would be surprised not ....
Let me know if there is any more fun to investigate in the original iMac!
