Ask Max: Running OS 9 on Intel Mac Pro

Asked on 07/31/2014:

I would like to install Mac OS 9.2.2 on the New Mac Pro "soda can Mac" natively and install the original Mac OS X server software. How is this possible?


I have found a virtualization/emulation that'€™s reputed to be able to accomplish this. It allows you to run Mac OS 9 as an application. It'€™s not a bootable solution as MAC OS9 was only coded for PowerPC processors.

The PowerPC emulator is called SheepShaver. Itâ€'s not exactly reliable though. You would also need to bring your own Mac OS9 Retail installation DVD. I'€™d recommend reading through the support forums there to make sure it'€™s a good fit.
