Mac OS X Panther (version 10.3) is fourth release of Mac OS X operating system which is named as Mac OS and is generally known for Apple’s desktop as well server operating system. It is further followed by Mac OS X 10.2 and preceded by Mac OS X Tiger operating system.
Here we go with quite simple steps to install Mac OS X 10 3 (Panther) on Windows P as per as professional guidance imparted by Mac OS X technical support team. A small package known as PearPC is required to emulate the Mac hardware on the Windows PC. With the help of this advanced level software package, users can even install other different Mac programs.
Let’ have a look on below steps to install Mac OS X 10 3 (Panther) on Windows PC:
- First, decompress the PearPC documentation into the directory named as “Guuguuut”
- Next, you are required to create an ISO file from the Mac OS X 10.6 installation CD 1 with the help of burning/ripping software. If, you are confused, you can also take a help from the documentation section at the software’s site or from the team of professionals working on Apple technical support phone number to create an ISO image file.
- One needs to save the .dll file in to the PearPC directory named as “macosx10.3.iso”.
- Now, install the Pear PC Control Panel and then start the process up. Click on the “File”>”Create Virtual Hard Drive” option. When the window will opens, then right under the “Hard Drive Size” option, just move the slider. 3GB is the maximum size for an operating system. Try using the operating system of 6GB in size as it will simply lower unexpected errors to 20%. So, it is always recommended to use 3GB if a user is running low on the disk space.
- Click on the “Browse” option and browse your way to the PearPC directory. Save the HD image named as”MacHD3GB.img”. So, once you are done with it, you are simply supposed to click on the “Create Hard Disk” option.
- Click on the “File”>”New Configuration File” option with the PearPC Control Panel. You will be able to see a Wizard which will pop up.
- After the Wizard window appears, just click on the “Continue” option. Next to “PearPC Specifics”, you have to click on the “Browse” option, and search for the “ppc.exe” file which will be in the PearPC directory that you have extracted it to.
- Then just under the “Primary IDE Device” option, you need to click on the “Browse”option, and then search for the hard drive image which was just created, and named as “MacHD3GB.img”.
- Under the “Memory Size”, one needs to move the slider to determine how much virtual RAM is needed by Mac OS X?
- Click on the “Continue” button.
- Under the “PearPC Additional Options”, a user needs to set up the video mode according to his wish
- Leave everything to the default window. Click on the “Finish” option.
- On the last window section, you just have to enter a name for the PearPC configuration process.
- Click on the “Finish” option.
- But often, you will find that the PearPC Control Panel is not always a perfect option. A small amount of change is needed to pearpc.cfg file, which was created. Go to “My Computer”, and browse to the PearPC directory. Next, just open the file named as “pearpc.cfg” with Notepad. Add just three of the lines to the bottom of the file without asterisk sign:
- pci_ide0_slave_installed = 1
- pci_ide0_slave_image = “C:\PearPC\macosx10.3.iso”
- pci_ide0_slave_type = “cdrom”
- Save the file and shut the Notepad.
- Now run the PearPC and then install the Mac OS X.
- Mac OS X 10.3 will start installing itself.
- Follow all the instructions given.
